In Partnership With
McArthur BDC works with several grain silo and grain bin manufacturers to ensure our customers have access to a comprehensive range of products. This includes Scunthorpe based manufacturer Bentall Rowlands as well as the manufacturer of the worlds largest grain bin, US silo specialist, Sukup.
Flat bottom silos are available in diameters from as small is 3m up to 47.5m, giving capacities ranging from 20m3 up to 45,000m3. Consideration needs to be given to grain cooling requirements for stored grain, including the air distribution system and equipment. Also, thought must be given to how the grain is handled both loading and unloading the silo. Particularly important is the access design for long-term management and maintenance of the system.
Hopper bottom silos are typically used to store wet grain as part of a drying system or as buffer storage on a process line. They are available in diameters from 3m up to 10m, providing storage capacity from 20m3 to 4,000m3. The hoppers can have a 45 or 60 degree incline depending on the product to be stored. Hopper bottom silos can be mounted on a supporting structure to form loading silos for HGVs.
All silos are designed for cyclical loading and compliant with the applicable British standards. They can be supplied with a wide range of accessories including catwalks, platforms, access staircases and towers. All round silos feature a galvanised finish the exact specification varies depending on application. Silos can also be finished with a protective polymer coating or painted in a broad range of RAL colours.
