Why Use Spiral Steel Silos to Store Materials?

Dec 09, 2022Keywords: Spiral Steel Silo, Cement Silo, SRON Silo

Introduction of Spiral Steel Silo
Spiral steel silo is a form of steel silo that uses a special processing method to connect the spiral undercut of the silo wall. The spiral steel silo has the functions of receiving, storing, unloading, and reversing the granular objects, and plays a role in balancing the production process, ensuring continuous production, saving manpower, and improving the degree of mechanization. The spiral steel silos produced by SRON are widely used in grain, oil, building materials, chemical industry, electric power, environmental protection, sewage treatment, ports and other industries for the storage of granular and powdery materials.

Four Characteristics of Spiral Steel Silo

1.Good Air Tightness and Wide Application
This kind of bite formed by special equipment has excellent sealing performance, can store granular and powdery materials, and can meet the technological requirements of fumigation and insecticide. It has been maturely applied in the fields of building materials, grain and oil.
2.Short Construction Period and Quick Investment Returns 
On-site construction, the silo roof is installed on the ground, and it is formed by special construction equipment. The bending speed can reach 300m/hour, so the construction period is short, the investment is effective and the production is quick.

3.Small Footprint and Light Weight
The height and diameter of the silo can be selected arbitrarily within a wide range, and the distance between the steel silos is as small as 50 cm, which can make full use of the space. The self-weight of the spiral steel silo is only 1/6 of the concrete silo with the same volume, which is equivalent to the steel bar weight of the same volume concrete silo, which can greatly reduce the load of the basic structure and the cost of building the silo.
4.High Strength and Long Service Life
The continuous spiral undercut of the steel silo is five times the thickness of the base metal, which greatly enhances the load resistance of the silo and prolongs the service life of the steel silo more reliably. The material of the silo body can be selected according to the requirements of anti-corrosion and grinding strength of the stored materials, and the best ratio of steel plates can be selected, so that its normal service life can reach 20-30 years.
