Making your own soap in the kitchen can be fun and educational, but mixing together products to make industrial-sized batches of cleaners and/or detergents presents additional challenges. Certain reactions can become dangerous on a large scale if they cannot exchange heat with the environment. By-products that are inconsequential in small quantities can become problematic at a large scale. Even the transport, handling, and storage of bulk quantities of chemicals can be problematic, especially if those chemicals are hazardous.
The transport companies employed by Sirius all have extensive experience carrying bulk quantities of chemicals, so you can be assured that your product will arrive in good order. As for the question of how big is “bulk”, Sirius sells chemicals in quantities ranging from 5kg to 25.000 kg and from 5 liters to 25.000 liters per order. Many of our customers are surprised to find that we can scale up our packages to grow as they do. Bulk quantities are not only less expensive per unit, but they also require less packaging and therefore create less waste.
We can also pre-weigh your chemicals so that you do not have to weigh them out each and every time you want to use them. So, if you need 16.7 kg of a certain powder for every batch of product, you do not have to scoop out 16.7 kg from a 20 kg bag anymore, or use a hopper or buffer vessel connected to a dosing system – we can send you packages of 16.7 kg, so that all you need to do is empty the package. We can also account for weighing errors – all you have to do is let us know your tolerance for deviation.
But it’s not just packaging: we also have the knowledge and understanding to help you manage bulk quantities of chemicals effectively. We take your company’s operations into account and will make on-site visits so that we can better advise you on the logistics of managing bulk quantities. Sirius maintains good contacts with your production teams not just your purchasers and your chemists, so that we know what they need, to do their jobs well.
Last but not least; our knowledge of the different transport and customs formalities in each country and our bi-weekly accounting of our complete inventories and cumulated customer forecasts all add up to your security of supply.
The Sirius effect:
A partnership with Sirius means knowing that someone is always trying to make things better, leaving you free to focus on making your best products. Making things easier for our customers can go together with making things easier for our planet. You grow, we grow with you.
