A silo is a vertical steel structure for storing bulk materials. Silos are used to store grain, coal, food products, chemicals and similar bulk materials.
1. What is a Steel Silo?

Bulk storage silos made of steel are the perfect solution to store the dry bulk material for a long time. The cylindrical shape and the conical bottom allow a complete discharge of the product.

2. What are the types of Steel Silos?
  • Flat Bottom Silos

The flat bottom silo has a flat service which means it can gives a full support to the silo. This type of silo is used for both short-term and long-term storage of free flowing bulk materials. 

  • Hopper Silos

They are used for the short or /medium term storage of free flowing materials. Compared to flat bottom silos, hopper silos have capacity shortcomings.

3. What are their advantages?
  • Being vertical and very tall structures as compared to other storage options, silos occupy considerable smaller land footprint.
  • Collecting and transporting the material to and from a silo is easier. It is a more efficient and cost effective compared to other alternatives.
  • Steel silos lasts several decades bringing down the effective costs of ownership with limited maintenance requirement over the lifespan of the structure.
