Silos are designed for storing dry (10% humidity) and bulk materials and they work as a final storage tank – it is here where all the material extracted by the dedusting and filtrating system is collected.

Silo characteristics

The coat of the silo is made of galvanized construction steel sheets of 2 mm which are bolted together to the horizontal and vertical structural reinforcement elements. The structures of the roof and of the hopper are made of galvanized steel sheets of 3 mm, bolted to the tank. Other elements, such as the supporting ring and bracket structures, are produced of sanded and coated carbon steel. Each silo we produce is also equipped with a set of inspection windows, ladders and railing. The final product is characterized by its high functionality, safety and durability.

Fire and explosion protection

All FS silos are equipped with fire protection – a dry raiser instalation with sprinkle system.
The FS silos designed for storage of bulk solids whose dust is potentially explosive are produced in compliance with the ATEX directive. Therefore, they are equipped with additional explosion protection as as pressure detector and decompression panels for explosion relief. Also their structural design is of adequate resistance to withhold the reduced (relieved with the use of decompression panels) explosion pressure. The ability of silos to withstand explosions depends on the ratio of the height of the silo to its diameter, therefore not all of the silos can be used for potentially explosive dust due to their dimensions limitations.

Silos application

Our silos are designed for storing dry and bulk solids such as wood chips, sawdust e.g. in furniture production plants. In case a bigger storage tank is needed for bulk solids of heavier bulk weight such as pellet, we offer tanks and silos of strengthened structure. Their cone part (the discharge hopper) is longer and at more acute angle. They can store materials of 650 kg/m3 bulk weight.
