Dry Bulk,

Since its creation in 1978, STANDARD INDUSTRIE International has been designing equipment that facilitates the storage, flow, conveying and cleaning of bulk powdery products.

STANDARD INDUSTRIE celebrates 40 years

Hervé Simoëns, the Founder, came up with the idea that compacted powder can only empty from the silo with a large influx of air. He filed a patent and offered his solution to cement manufacturers with whom he achieved great success in France and internationally.

Ambitious, he gradually led his company to be recognised as a specialist in the bulk handling market globally.

Since 1985, subsidiaries have been established in Europe, South Africa, China, Canada, the USA and Mexico.

A network of Export Sales Representatives looks after the eastern European countries, the Maghreb, the Middle East, central Africa, as well as Asia.

The bulk market still offers a great potential for development and the projects of STANDARD INDUSTRIE International are numerous.


The company offers four ranges of products and services.

Firstly, it is a leader in declogging notably of silos and hoppers thanks to its air cannon, the AIRCHOC®, for which it holds a patent for more than 30 years. Its principle is simple: a volume of compressed air varying between 1 - 400 l is released instantly. The effect obtained corresponds to a deflagration due to the sudden expansion of the compressed air. Today, the AIRCHOC enjoys an international reputation on the bulk handling market during these last 35 years. Committed to innovation, the company has developed the MACSYS®, an air cannon with several heads, perfectly suited for hot areas and difficult access. In order to better meet its customers’ needs, the company has developed a wireless version. Adaptable to the AIRCHOC and to the MACSYS, this innovative concept includes, as its name indicates, the installation of cable trays.

Secondly, the company has also developed the LIFTUBE®: an efficient solution designed for conveyor belts to optimise their sealing property and safety. Also available in large width and high temperature versions, the LIFTUBE ensures a reduction of dust emissions, loss of products, maintenance time and guarantees the safety of the operators.

Thirdly, the company also designs and manufactures equipment for industrial vacuum cleaning. Its know-how and expertise in industrial processes, completed by a personalised technical study, helps to provide the best cost effective technical answers to the applications whist ensuring a safe and healthy environment for operators. From mobile units to vacuum trucks, STANDARD INDUSTRIE International offers all the configurations: from 5 - 300 hp, electric or diesel, on container or on silo, whatever the cleaning needs.

The company offers cleaning services and declogging of hoppers and silos thanks to the GIRONET®. This mechanical cleaning is safe because it excludes any human interventions inside the silos and hoppers. In addition, through the use of compressed air and an aluminum housing around the engine, all risk of explosion is avoided. Effective on any type of blockage, product or storage unit, the GIRONET can be used without stopping production. Therefore, the customer can quickly recover its full storage capacity while ensuring optimum safety for its operators.
