A BCS Story: Bulk Chemical Plants

No quod sanctus instructior ius, et intellegam interesset duo. Vix cu nibh gubergren dissentias. His velit veniam habemus ne. No doctus neglegentur vituperatoribus est, qui ad ipsum oratio. Ei duo dicant facilisi, qui at harum democritum consetetur.
BCS McLean, IL

BCS LLC brought their vision to live with FarmChem’s full scale 3D rendering and hands on approach to bulk site development.

BCS, LLC - McLean, IL

A state of the art bulk chemical facility in McLean, IL to serve as the hub for three existing bulk sites owned by BCS, LLC. Their main concern was ‘accuracy’ and ‘mixing ability’ in order to meet the growing demands on American growers. In addition to mixining capacity, BCS also needed a repacking station for filling totes quickly and accurately on demand.

What We Designed

Starting with a full scale 3D rendering of the facility, FarmChem provided the roadmap, competative pricing, installation crews, and industry leading automation through its partnership with KSi Automation. Using KSi software, the McLean facility operates 8 stainless steel tanks, 6 fertilizer tanks, 12 mini bulk tanks, and 2 mixing tanks all from one computer interface.
