WEIGHING
SILO

Features

Historical record system in database, allowing to visualize the production downtime (allows you to see the efficiency of your production).

Communication system with the ERP so that the information of the inventories is quantified in real time by the personnel of the plant that plans the production (to be able to know your inventories instantly).

Knowing the weight in your silos eliminates the change of density that the material has due to the change of particle size or compaction of the silo.

By having the weight in real time, it allows you to make decisions in the process; such as stopping or starting equipment in the production line or silo loading.

It allows to have visualization within one or several computers: Purchasing, production, quality, management. Even in other cities or countries with the appropriate communication card.

Materials of fabrication

Carbon steel
ASTM A-36, A572 Gr-50, A516 Gr-70 and specials.

Stainless steel
304, 304L, 316, 316L, 430 and specials.

Aluminum
5052-H32, B209, 6061-T6.

Coatings

Surface preparation or abrasive shot blasting, under the specification of the SSPC Standard in its different types: SSPC-SP 6/NACE N°3 Commercial Shot Blasting, SSPC-SP 10/NACE N°2 Semi-White Shot Blasting, SSPC-SP 5/NACE N° 1 White Metal Shot Blasting.

Application of High Solids Epoxy Primer.

Final finish with High Solids Polyurethane Enamel, the method of paint application is by spraying.

Interior coatings are designed to work in high and low abrasion conditions, all components are FDA certified.

The exterior coatings are designed to work under moderate and high abrasion environmental conditions.

Finishes

Finishes are directly related to the material stored, these can be only weld cleaning, weld bead removal or as specialized for the food or pharmaceutical industry with a roughness finish of Ra= 1.6µm to 0.8 µm.

As part of the quality assurance of welded joints, they are inspected by ASNT certified personnel in the following non-destructive tests:

Visual Inspection Level II (VT)

Liquid Penetrant Level II (PT)

Industrial Ultrasonic Level II (UT)

Level II X-Ray Testing (RT)

Dimensions

We have different sizes and capacities in the manufacture of silos, see the PDF to know them:

We develop special models, out of our standard, to cover all storage needs.

Support types

  • Skirt type
  • With legs
  • For mounting on structure
  • With opening for trailer or railroad loading and passing through
  • With flat bottom or unloading cone
