Sheet Metal Silos
In the timber and timber based products industry it mostly involves the installation of a modern dust removal or abatement equipment. We also offer the production of a wood-chip silos.
The silo on the picture at the right side stands on a 45-ton steel supporting construction and has a diameter of about 33 ft. (10 meters). Wood dust and chips are fed via the extraction to the massive storage container. The high support structure allows the trucks driving through to discharge the silo.
In addition, we assemble and deliver a filter on top. This filter is designed for the deposition of dust which e.g. is caused by filling the silo.
Due to the characteristics of the stored material and as a result of the procedure for filling, discharging or loosening, the occurrence of explosive atmosphere inside the silos can not be excluded in principle. Therefore the ATEX Directive must be observed (94/9 / EC).
