We didn’t cut any corners in the portable self-erect design, so it has all of the quality of our stationary design, with frames built to hold up in harsh climates and tri-axle, air-ride suspension with a 2-axle stinger as standard, all at an affordable cost. This system allows you to get your plant up and running in no time, with a negative weigh system that provides 80 tons of short-term storage at production rates up to 500 tons per hour (TPH). Our silo sets up on a prepared, level surface.
The top of the silo is covered, keeping the heat in and the elements out. The silo has 2” of insulation for added storage life. We use 1” thick Ni-Hard floor liners, heavy-duty, dual strand chain, cone liners, closed top design and we even insulate the silo for added storage time. A caged safety ladder allows access to the top platform, where you would have access to the batcher. Dual, direct-drive reducers on the drive minimize any maintenance on top of the silo. The cone is lined with “turtle-back” liners and it can also be equipped with electric cone heat. Our gate design is a dual, timed, clam gate with a center drop discharge, minimizing segregation.
The silo rests on three equally-spaced load cells located at the base of the cylinder. While leveling a system that uses four load cells can be difficult, three points of contact will always find level. The batched weight is tracked via a load-out system. An optional hydraulic leveling package allows you to fine-tune the leveling. Our telescoping cylinders lift the slat conveyor which is tethered to the silo. The silo is positioned via limit switches, and hydraulic locking pins are actuated to secure the silo into position.
The deployment cycle only takes around 15 minutes.
