5 Things to Know about the Mechanized Silo

1.Classification: agricultural silo and industrial silo  Agricultural silo:Used to store food, feed and other granular and powdered materials  Industrial silo:Used to store coke, cement, salt, sugar and other bulk materials
2.Importance:Mechanized silo generally cost about a third higher than mechanical room of the warehouse cost, but it can shorten the material loading and unloading process, reduce the operation and maintenance costs, eliminate heavy bags of homework.So it is advantageous to the mechanization, automation of operation, thus becoming one of the main forms of granary.

3.Installation:The discharging hopper is always installed at the bottom of the mechanized silo, the upstream is equipped with conveying equipment. When loading materials, the bulk materials will be lifted by the bucket elevator and then discharged into the horizontal belt conveyor, the belt conveyor conveys the bulk material to the silo. When discharging material, the bulk materials will be discharged to the downstream through the dump hopper,then conveyed by the horizontal belt conveyor to other place.
4.Planar shape classification:Silo plane is divided into square, rectangle, polygon and round shape, etc.Due to the circular silo wall force is reasonable, when storing materials single species or reserves is small, it should arrange with independent warehouse or a single row layout. When storing materials or reserves larger species,it should arrange in groups.The total length of the cylinder group of storehouse is generally not more than 60 meters, the total length of the square of storehouse is generally not more than 40 meters.

5.Problems: Appropriate measures should be taken when there is large silo group length or wall force and complex ground situation, such as setting a expansion joint in order to eliminate the shrinkage stress of concrete and temperature stress effects, setting a settlement joint to avoid uneven settlement influence due to huge load difference from different parts of the structure itself or the bearing capacity of foundation soil have obvious differences, setting an earthquake cracks in order to reduce earthquake damage.
