From Design to Construction of Your Silo
Posted by Dennis Blauser, March 3, 2021
Proper silo construction starts with a design that’s tailored to your storage needs.
Key Silo Design Considerations:
  • Material stored
  • Storage capacity
  • Flow mechanics (e.g., funnel flow, mass flow, or fluidized flow)
A customized design helps extend the useful life and promote uptime by ensuring an effective flow pattern for efficient silo unloading.
When it comes time to start your silo construction, it's essential to choose a qualified silo engineer. Because of the highly technical nature of silo construction, an experienced engineer can ensure the proper silo construction methods are used for the job.
