NEW SILO ENGINEERING & DESIGN PROCESS

There are many factors to consider when designing a silo including the materials to be stored and equipment and material handling requirements.

The design of the silo walls is generally straight, but the internal cones and floors require considerable engineering expertise and experience.

Bygging has vast experience designing silos and has constructed approximately 50 silos all across India for prestigious clients including Shriram EPC, Punj Lloyd, Essar Projects, Mc Nally Bharat, Bhushan Steel, NBCC etc.

MATERIALS STORED

  • Cement
  • Coal
  • Gypsum
  • Fly Ash/Sly Ash/ Soda Ash
  • Grains /Feeds/ Meals
  • Aluminium
  • Limestone
  • Waste Water

ADVANTAGES OF REINFORCED CONCRETE SILOS

  • Increased longevity and durability
  • Environmental protection of stored product
  • Impact resistant
  • Resistant to catastrophic failures
  • Eliminates the need for large (and expensive) cranes for erection
  • Better protection of mechanical and electrical equipment
  • Ability to strengthen later for new applications using post-tensioning
  • No height or diameter limitations
  • Eliminates initial and frequent painting costs
