Silos are used to store a variety of bulk materials in various sectors of the national economy and are most often used in grain elevators, cement and coal warehouses, in non-ferrous metallurgy and the chemical industry. Silos are unsuitable for storing bulk materials that have the property of caking or have a brittle structure that is broken by the pressure of the layer above.
Silos can serve as storage facilities for raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products, as well as intermediate tanks directly in the technological process. Silo warehouses can be designed as separate silos or as a group of silos combined into a silo body.
Since 2007, HELYX has been supplying silos in the form of one-piece, as well as modular structures, vertically or horizontally divided. A vertical transparent strip is placed on the body of each product: it allows you to control the flow rate of the product poured into the silo.
The silo is a cylindrical container with a conical bottom. Due to the vertical arrangement of the silo, significant space savings are achieved, despite the impressive volumes of raw materials saved. An equally significant advantage of a silo over conventional warehouses is the provision of an increased level of protection of stored raw materials from the effects of external environmental factors (dampness, rain, snow).
