Flat silo and hopper silo are round type silos, one special silo is a square silo,
A square silo has a silo roof, silo body, and silo hopper, the silo roof can be a flat or inverted cone, this type silo is widely used indoors;
Some customers want to build the silo indoors, but since the limited indoor land (especially the height), a round silo can not up to the ideal silo volume, under the circumstances, the square silo is a better solution for grain/flour storage; Square silo can full use the land length and width, it can be shorter if there is height limited. There are sheets inside the silo, with this silo, customers can store different materials;
If you want to build one silo system indoors, and you are worried about your factory height limit, pls try to contact us, we will do our best to give you the best storage silo solution, no matter whether you purchase or not, let’s try to do it together.
Hopper bottom silos (also called cone bottom silos, hopper bottom storage bins, hopper bins) are the steel silos with a cone bottom. Hopper bottom silos are erected on the supporting structure to make the delicate products unloading easily through gravity. Hopper silos have a smooth wall hopper transition with no steps or flanges to offer the cleanest product discharge from the silo. The stored products inside the silo are isolated from the ground, thereby preventing humidity and allowing the interconnection of silos through tapes, facilitating perfect extraction or dosage.
The hopper, rings and support steel are made of hot-dip galvanized steel sheet. All our hopper cones for grain bins are designed in accordance D-4097 or ASTM D-3299 standards for elevated cone heads. According to the stored grain products and storing situations, the hopper or cone angles are commonly designed at 45º and 60º. The structure of hopper silo depends on the type of products to be stored. In generally, free-flowing products pellet products like corn, wheat, soybean and feed pellets require the hopper bottom silo with a 45° angle while powder or other material which is hard to flow fits 60° cone bottom silo storage.
Introduction of Farm Silo :
Storage Materials: Wheat, Corn, Soybean, Paddy, Sorghum, peanut, Seed, etc.
Storage Capacity: 100-10000tons
Silo Type: Galvanized Corrugated storage Silo
Silo Bottom Type: Conical Bottom, Flat Bottom
Farm Silo System Process
The whole farm silo system includes grain receiving, pre-cleaning, dust collecting, grain drying, feeding and conveying, silos and truck loading, etc. There are ventilation systems, grain monitoring systems, material level monitoring, and other auxiliary systems for support. The schematic diagram is as follows:
Ventilation System The roof of the farm silo is installed natural ventilation window, and induced draft fan, and the cone bottom of the farm silo is installed blower to divert air to the silo for circulation, which can protect the grain from moisture, greatly ensure the quality of grain in farm silo.
Temperature and Humidity Measurement System, Grain Monitoring System The system allows clients to grasp the temperature and humidity in the farm silo anytime and anywhere, and control the situation in the silo.
Material Level Monitoring System The material level device can monitor the empty and full degree of steel silo. When the grain is about to fill the entire steel silo, the material level device sends an alarm signal to effectively control the grain in the silo.
Features of Farm Silo System
The capacity of steel silos is generally between 20-10,000 tons, which can meet the storage needs of large and medium-sized farms. And the steel silo sealing performance is good, the construction speed is fast, and the material level measurement technology is advanced, in line with the current trend of farm mechanization production.
1. Short Construction Period
On-site construction, installation of steel silo roof on the ground, and molding of special construction equipment. The assembly of bolted steel silo is simple and fast, and all its parts are connected by bolts, thus shortening the construction period.
2. Safe Grain Storage
Farm steel silo is easy to realize mechanization. In farm silo, it can be conveniently equipped with equipment such as feeding, discharging, cleaning, ventilation, temperature measurement, and detecting the fullness of the silo to achieve the purpose of safe grain storage.
3. Thermal Insulation Air-tight Treatment
It is convenient to deploy thermal insulation treatment and air-tight treatment, air-tight thermal insulation steel silo is conducive to fumigation and controlled atmosphere storage and also has good insect and rat-proof performance.
4. Long Service Life
The maintenance cost of the farm silo is low, and the service life is suitable, which can generally reach about 30 years.
5. Less Investment
20-30% less costs over concrete silos, greatly saving investment. The construction is very fast, the investment return is fast, and the return rate is high.
6. High Automation
The entire silo system is controlled by a DDG control cabinet or a programmable PLC analog flow chart, and the relevant processes are fully automatic, which can achieve a high degree of mechanization and automation, and high production efficiency.
Precaution When Using Farm Silo
1. The silo body must be kept safe at all times. If the silo body is in a humid environment for a long time, the surface of steel silo will be rusted. On the one hand, the rusty surface will shorten the service life of steel silo. On the other hand, rust will also affect the quality of the bulk materials in storage silo.
2. The grain and feed can only be put into the steel silo after reaching proper humidity. Only when the grain is dry enough can the grain and feed be put into the silo, otherwise, the grain will become moldy.
3. It is best to regularly check the operation of the dust collector, fan and the sealing of the silo. Inspecting these components not only prolongs the life of farm silo, but also ensures the safety of grain and farm silo.
4. The silo must be operated in accordance with the instructions. Proper operation can help prolong the service life of steel silo and keep it safe. Especially when choosing the installation site, the appropriate space should be
Price of Farm Silo System
The price of farm silos is the most competitive. Advanced technology enables our company to produce high-quality farm storage silos at reasonable cost. We have adopted some advanced technologies to improve the performance quality of steel silos. China’s steel industry is developing rapidly, and the quality of steel is good, so our grain silos are of high quality and relatively low prices.
