Bulk storage silos in diameters from 3.5 to 22 meters and capacities of 5.0 - 5000.0 metric tones are provided suited to a wide range of bulk material handling applications.
The range includes bolt together and continuously formed construction incorporating materials options of high carbon steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, plastic coated steels in material thickness from 1.5mm - 4mm.
The continuous forming principle is characterized by:
- Automated manufacturing process for assured quality.
- Formed joint ensures a very effective seal and extreme rigidity to the wall section.
- Efficient erection process providing optimum economics.
Complete installations incorporating bulk unloading systems, mechanical handling, screeners, magnetic separators and dust filter collectors are supplied to provide an economic arrangement.
Optional features, which are available to meet specific applications, include:
The range of continuous flow tower dryers are suited to varying capacity needs and product drying characteristics for the drying treatment of all kinds of grain and seed to ensure safe storage of these products over long periods.
Level Indicating Systems
High quality capacitor or paddle type level sensors are installed to enable process automation, alarms and operating convenience and efficiency.
Temperature Measuring Systems
The TMS automatically measures the temperature at varying levels within the silo. The recorded temperatures are accumulated, displayed and printed to enable complete product control. The system is equipped with audible and visual alarm functions, which help to minimize losses due to oxidation and unduly high temperature within the stored product.
Efficient in silo fumigation systems may be fitted to control insects and prevent likely mould growth from insect damaged grain/seed.
Automated Control Systems
The automated control systems, through electro-mechanical operational units fitted to the diverter valves, slide gate valves in combination with motion sensors, level sensors and limit switches enables advanced automated operation of the complete installation for reliable and convenient system management.
Grain Tech Engineering is in a position to supply clients with silos of all types and specification together with site foundation preparation and construction details, process design, manufacture, design and supply of the control system, installation, commissioning and training of operational personnel.
