Silos

Silo with conical bottom (45°, 60° cone angle)

Purpose:

Storage of grain crops in storage depots.
Grain storage silos with a galvanizing quality of 650 grams/nm. The silo is equipped with a planetary pulley for emptying, ladders, ventilation and temperature sensing systems. The ventilation system of the silo is a pressurised air system supplied by fixed or mobile relocatable fans, which circulate the air through ventilation ducts built into the floors or through the entire floor. The temperature sensing system can be ordered with both manual and central computerised data monitoring and recording.

Flat-based silos

Purpose:

Suitable for storing grain crops.
Grain storage silos with a galvanizing quality of 650 grams/nm.
The silo is equipped with ladders and temperature sensing systems of suitable design for access to the handling element, in accordance with the silo’s intended use. The ventilation system of the conical silo is a pressurised air system supplied by mobile relocatable or fixed fans, which circulate the air through perforated pipes built into the side plates of the cone. The temperature sensing system can be ordered with both manual and central computerised data monitoring and recording.

Farm silos

Farm silos are made of corrugated galvanised sheet. The top cone of the silo has an opening roof. Optional features include a cleaning opening for the lower cone, a manual slide gate, a temporary bushing for the installation of a pipe auger, a fluid filling pipe and a ventilation pipe. A ladder is a standard component of the silo, which is fixed to the silo casing. It is available in centric or asymmetric discharge, galvanised or galvanised and painted.
A great advantage of the silo is the so-called “skirt” part between the lower cone and the cylinder, which drains the rainwater away from the outlet, thus preventing soaking in the outlet machines used to remove the discharge.

The silo is supplied assembled on a plate with the necessary bolts and sealants.
The galvanised quality is 650 g/m².

Naturally, we can also assemble the silos with our experienced assembly team.
If the customer wishes to assemble the silos himself, we can provide assembly drawings.

Plastic silos

The silos have a robust construction and are extremely resistant to external environmental influences, UV radiation and heat, from -40°C up to 140°C! In addition, they have excellent insulation to protect the stored materials from moisture. The lifetime of the feed silos is practically infinite, they do not corrode and require no maintenance. Their excellent properties make them very suitable for use in various economic sectors.

Silo storage – basically there are two types: mechanical or fluid.

Mechanical loading is done through the top opening of the silo without the use of air. Most often, the material is conveyed by a conveyor pulley to the top opening of the silo, from where it is free-fall fed into the silo. In some cases, it is also possible to fill the silo by means of a surge pipe, provided that the material is transported from the top downwards.

Fluidized bedding is done through the silo fill pipe (usually foot 3) using high pressure air. Most often, special purpose-built filling trucks are able to perform this task, but in certain situations other, local solutions can be envisaged. A major disadvantage of fluid loading is that during loading, the feed mixture is sorted and fractionated according to particle size, thus losing its homogeneity. Our company recommends the use of a screw conveyor.

The silos are emptied by mechanical means only.

The material in the silo bottom can be discharged by means of conveyors such as: auger conveyors, spiral feeders, disc feeders. If the level difference is sufficient, by means of a sliding pipe, manually operated: bagger.

The silo trays can be fitted separately to the silo body, allowing the connection of all automatic, semi-automatic or manual discharge equipment.

Module silos (indoor silos)

The silo is delivered assembled on a plate with the necessary screws and sealing materials.
The galvanized quality is 650 g/m².

Of course we can also assemble the silos with our experienced assembly team.
If the customer wishes to assemble the silos himself, we can provide assembly drawings.

Silos with 45′-60′ cones are also available. They are made of modular elements for a better use of space. Recommended mainly for indoor use.

For storage of raw material-premixes.
