Steel Silo For Bulk Material Storage

Jun 29, 2023Keywords: Steel Silo For Sale, Storage Silo, Cement Silo

Steel Silo Introduction
Steel silo is a tool for storing materials that is welded or bolted with steel plates. Steel silo was first used in the cement industry, and now it is also widely used in the building materials industry, coal industry, chemical industry, grain industry, etc. The effective diameter of steel silo can reach tens of meters, the silo body is cylindrical, the roof of the silo is spherical, and the wall of the silo is in the form of a steel structure frame. As an energy-saving, sealed, and environmentally-friendly equipment, steel silo not only solves the problem of safe storage of off-season materials and short-supply of hot-selling peak seasons in terms of powder materials, but also serves as a storage silo for centralized use of bulk materials. It has a very prominent effect on emission reduction and environmental protection. Compared with other storage methods, why do more and more owners choose to build steel silos to store bulk materials?

Reasons for Choosing Steel Silos to Store Bulk Materials
Saving Land
Compared with traditional open-air stacking or flat silos, steel silos occupy less area and save land resources.
Good Air Tightness
SRON adopts the patented vacuum sealing technology, and the materials are stored in a large steel silo in a long-term airtight storage, and thier physical indicators are basically unchanged and their utilization rate is improved.
Energy Saving and Environmental Protection
During the use of steel silo, the environmental protection meets the standards to prevent environmental pollution, and can effectively solve the problems of air pollution by dust and water pollution by gray water. Moreover, the patented dust removal technology is adopted in the process of material storage and delivery, which will not pollute the surrounding environment.
Less Initial Investment
During the production and installation of steel silo, a number of patented technologies of SRON are adopted, which can save about 50% of building materials and more than 60% of land;
Flexible Layout
Steel silo can be arranged according to the specific conditions of the site. They can be built in single or double rows, which is very flexible.

Features of SRON Steel Silo
1.Large Storage Capacity: the diameter of steel silo can reach 80 meters, and the single silo capacity is 200-12,000 tons, which can meet the storage needs of different industries, and can be enlarged if there are special needs;
2.Long Service Life: according to the standard maintenance, the service life of steel silo can be as long as 50 years. All parts of the silo are produced by the most advanced fully automatic steel plate rolling production line.
3.Advanced Technology: high degree of automation, and advanced loading and unloading system provide great convenience for your operation and management.
4.Good Anti-corrosion Effect: SRON steel silo adopts high-quality galvanized steel plate to protect steel silo from corrosion and facilitate customer maintenance.
5.Good Storage Effect: SRON steel silo has good sealing performance, leak-proof performance, moisture-proof performance, and complete supporting equipment, such as temperature measuring device, ventilation device, material level monitoring device, etc., to ensure the safe storage of materials.
6.Structural Safety: As a high-load thin-walled container, the structural safety of steel silo must be considered first. SRON will fully consider various fixed loads, dynamic loads, material loads, earthquakes, wind loads, snow loads, temperature effects, etc. in the early design stage of each steel silo.

Precautions for Using Steel Silos
1.It is necessary to strengthen management, improve safety awareness, enhance the responsibility awareness of operators, and conduct knowledge publicity on the precautions for steel silo storage.
2.Do a good job of safety monitoring, check every day, solve some safety hazards in time, and avoid dust explosion.
3.In the design and installation of steel silo, better dust-proof and explosion-proof technology must be adopted, which can greatly reduce the probability of dust explosion. When designing steel silo, SRON engineers considered that dust may be generated during the transportation and storage of materials, and if the concentration is too high, an explosion may occur. Therefore, a dust removal system and an explosion-proof system must be added to the steel silo storage system.
