Silos made of High Tenacity Trevira fabric are watertight and suitable for the storage of food powder products. The top portion of the silo sack acts as a filter, and the modular supporting structure is composed of galvanized steel and allows for quick assembly and disassembly. All silos are custom-made to best fit into the space available at the customer’s premises, and are assembled on site. The High Tenacity Trevira fabric guarantees optimum oxygenation and a free flow of the stored flour. Generally, our fabric silos offer a much more economical alternative to stainless steel silos in terms of overall cost of the system, ongoing maintenance, as well as installation cost. In addition, fabric silos are anti-microbial for the highest levels of bacteria resistance unlike their stainless steel counterparts. Return on investment is usually much shorter with fabric silos.
These silos are ideal for indoor environments with low headroom. They are made of AISI steel and manufactured with a 12°-15° sloped bottom (depending on the model), to obtain maximum capacity in as little space as possible. The silo bottom is fluidized with air to ensure the complete evacuation of the stored flour in addition to proper aeration. The top portion is made of a filtering fabric. At the top of one side there is a pipe for silo loading in addition to a Plexiglass inspection window to check the ingredient level as well as to allow for cleaning operations to be carried out twice a year. Stainless steel silos are best suited for applications where maximum storage weigh is required with low ceiling clearance.
