As we know grain silo is very common. Need the density of grain , then can calculate the silo volume arrcoding
to customer’s request on silo capacity.
Generally the silo including three parts: silo roof, silo body, silo bottom. In different design, engineer will add different system, such as ventilation system, precleaning system and dryer system, level indicator, temperature measurement, etc. Which depends on the customer’s actual needs and the local environment.
Features of grain silo:
1. Good performance and long service life: spiral seaming edge five times the parent metal thickness, which greatly strengthens the silos’s body resistance to load capacity;its stability and strength service life are better than that of other steel silos.
2. Good air-tightness: this seaming by special equipment bending forming , sealing performance is especially good; can be used in granular, powder, grain storage ; avoid external humidity influence in inside materials, and at the same time can satisfy the insecticidal, fumigation etc process requirement, and can also be used to store liquid objects.
3. Short construction period, low cost: the silo body weight is equivalent to 1/6 of concrete silo with same volume , which greatly reduce the basic cost; at the same time extremely short construction period (1000 tons of silo, need only about five days time)
4. Small area occupancy: the spiral steel silo is better than that of other silos also lies in its height and diameter,which can be in great range choice and adaptation,e.g. granary spacing can be small to 50 cm.
