A cement silo is a steel construction product primarily used for the bulk storage of cement, fly ash, bentonite, and micro silica, a key component in the production of concrete. Its construction involves the use of metal or steel cylindrical vessels, which are typically fitted with screw conveyors, screw feeders, and pneumatic blowers that facilitate material flow from the silo to other processes. These vessels can be mounted on trucks or trailers for transportation to sites, or placed directly onto concrete slabs for stationary applications.

What are the 3 types of silos?

The three primary types of silos are vertical, horizontal, and portable.

There are Bolted & Welded Cement Silos as vertical silos and Horizontal Cement Silos. The option for those silos is portable and standard. You can customize different sizes of all of the parts on all levels if you get an offer. Fill up our proposal form to contact us and get an offer immediately.

Bolted Silos

A bolted silo is an engineered facility designed to contain a variety of granular bulk products, such as grains and powders. It typically consists of a cylindrical shell with roofs, walls, and layers of metal panels bolted together. The silo structure is usually mounted on a concrete or steel foundation for secure anchorage to the ground.

The main purpose to make the silo bolted is to have modularity when it is needed to ship for big tonnages.

How big is a cement silo?

The size of a cement silo is contingent upon the specific application and associated production requirements. Generally speaking, silos can range anywhere from several cubic feet to hundreds of cubic yards in volume or be available from 30 tonnes to 3300 tonnes. The dimensions vary as well, ranging from small, single-hopper configurations up to large multi-hopper or multiple-capacity designs. It should be noted that the shape of a given silo may also differ depending on the intended purpose and type of product being stored.

What are concrete silos used for?

These are cylindrical structures that are employed for the storage of many with a wide range of densities and particle sizes. Primarily, they are used to store bulk products such as agricultural products or other granular, including sand, gravel, coal, and cement. In addition, due to their robust construction and low maintenance requirements, concrete silos provide an optimal solution for the containment of hazardous materials in industrial settings.

Cement Silo Equipments

It is used for the storage and retrieval of cementitious particulars. It typically consists of a cylindrical steel shell, supported at its base by concrete foundations or steel legs, and filled with loose cement or other powdered facts. Here is a list of some of the required equipment for installation.

  • Pressure sensor and switch
  • Level Switch
  • Level Indicators (used to determine the amount of bulk matter in the silo)
  • Pipe
  • Nozzle
  • Aeration System
  • Pneumatic Control Panel
  • Pinch Valve
  • Connection Adapters
  • Screw Feeder
  • Butterfly Valve
  • Control Panel
  • Alarm
  • Maintenance Terminal
  • Pressure Relief and Safety Valve

How does it work?

Storage silos are an apparatus that utilizes a variety of processes to facilitate the storage and dispersion of cement, a crucial component in many construction endeavors. This system is compromises of several subsystems, all with distinct roles, that when combined create a cohesive mechanism for the efficient transfer and containment of the cement products.

The amount of bulk items inside the container is observed. An air filter is mounted to capture airborne particles such as dust. Pressure sensors and valves ensure safety by relieving pressure when required. Equipment such as discharge chutes and blowers help facilitate the flow of items out of the tank. Valves and feeders are used to regulate how many leaves are at a time and significantly prevent the waste of the powder.

How much cement does a silo hold?

The capacity can vary greatly, depending on the size and design of the silo and the requirements of the batching system it is being used. Fly ash silos can range in size from small, portable units that can hold a few tons of cement to large, stationary structures that can hold hundreds of tons. For example, a small portable cement silo may have a capacity of around 50 to 100 tons of cement, while a more enormous stationary cement silo may have a capacity of 500 to 3,000 tons or more. For telescopic silos, the maximum capacity is 150 tonnes. The capacity of a cement silo can be important to consider when choosing a silo for a concrete batching plant for specific project needs, as it will determine how long the factory can operate without having to refill the cement storage.

What are the advantages?

Our company offers several advantages over other storage solutions, primarily due to their design and construction. They are constructed from high-strength materials, such as steel or reinforced concrete, making them highly durable and able to withstand long-term exposure to the elements. Additionally, the vertical structure of these silos allows cement to be stored at a greater height than was previously possible with traditional means of keeping, resulting in increased space for a given area.

What is the relation between a cement silo and a concrete batching plant?

A cement silo is a large capacity container for cement, which is used in a batching plant to store the cement until it is necessary for mixing with other materials to make bulk matters. The concrete batching plant is a facility where the ingredients of concrete, such as cement, aggregate (gravel and sand), and water, are weighed and mixed to produce concrete of the required strength and other characteristics. The cement silo is usually located close to the batching plant and is connected to it by a conveyor belt or other means of transportation. The cement silo is used to store the cement until it is needed for the production of matter, which allows the batching plant to operate continuously without having to stop and refill the cement.
