Why we choose silo instead of the traditional warehouse ?

<<Previous  Next>>

In the passed time, people usually store the grains ( wheat or maize, paddy etc ) into the traditional cement warehouse, especially after the harvest time, there is abunant grains Stacked。

All we know is we need to take the grain for  drying out, ortherwise, it will be mouldedinfested with insects or worms。

But now, with the progress of science and technology, we design the Silo ---- (a pit for holding grain) is a structure for storing bulk materials. 

Silos are used in agriculture to store grain (see grain elevators) or fermented feed known as silage. Silos are more commonly used for bulk storage of grain, coal, cement, carbon black, wood chips, food products and sawdust.

What is the Silo features ?

1. Material : hot-galvanized steel sheets, its thickness is generally 0.8 ~ 4.2mm, and wall plates thickness up to 8.4 mm, with zinc coating 275                          g/m2 on the surface .

2. Assembly type :  Fabricated steel silo , which is a mechanical roll and molded into corrugated sheet punching, and use the electric torque wrench with high strength bolt assembly. 

3. Good tightness ,High precision,continuous spiral steel silo bite edge thickness is five times of the parent metal, Strengthen the resistance load capacity of steel silo.

4.High degree of standardization. We make steel silos as per customer detailed requests

5.Short construction period, low cost  ,easy maintain

From the silo features, we can see the advantages and function of the grain silo :

1. Easy loading and unload for the grain :  we equip the bucket elevator and screw conveyor for handling the grain in and out , which is a easy way than the human labor Manual handling 。

2. Make a good stay condition for the grain : Inside the storage silo, we equip the Temperature sensor system, Ventilation system,  Fumigation system, Thermal insulation system etc Aeration system , making sure a good save environment for the grains .

3. Adjustable silo volume : we produce the silo capacity from 100 tonnes to 5000 tonnes unit type, which can can greatly satisfy your needs.

4. Investment less :  steel silo with less of foundation and light weight , compare the cement workshop, silo is Economical.

5.Long life span : it can use until 80 years .
