Silos with lower steel hoppers are especially needed for different industries like beer factories, animal feeds, port facilities, flour mills, ethanol dryer, plastic industry and storage of biofuels. Hopper is designed with 45° or 60° angles in order to provide cereals can be flow with its characteristic way. For cereals, the hopper design is done with 45° angle and 60° angle is proper for feeding, wet cereal or low liquidity materials. This kind of silos is commonly used for low capacities, different materials and the high rate of filling and discharging operations. Generally, continuously discharging position is active. CTS manufacture silos with lower steel hopper with a guarantee for longer lifetime more than our competitors, high technologic manufacturing place with maximum strength.
Our customer requirements are satisfied with silos from 5m³ to 25.000m³ volumes. The manufacturing of silos is done by channeled galvanized steel with 600g/m2 coating and ZM250g/m2. For silos with lower steel hoppers, special steel structures, frames and platforms are designed. The hoppers are placed at the bottom of silo to levering of silo unit. All calculations are done with ANSI – ASAE EP 433 2033 or EUROCODE EN – 1991-4 norms or if needed by the customer, other norms can be applied.
Expressed height and volumes, metal hopper base silos have hot dipped galvanized compacting rings welded in both sides and by this way, quality is increased and structural assembly will be easier.
