Storage and Buffer Silo

PETKUS Buffer Silos are small, fine and incredibly practical for everyday loading, unloading or reloading. Grain or free flowing products can be stored on a short-term basis for buffering, mixing or dosing.  Due to the modular design of the galvanized square silos, different heights and capacities are possible. The square silo consists of individual elements with a length of 2000 mm, 2500 mm or 3000 mm. The maximum height is 6 m (10 individual elements). Every silo is equipped with a bolted outlet hopper that is attached on supports in the corresponding height.  Buffer silos are emptied at a hopper inclination of 45° or 60°, depending on the properties of the product. This makes it possible to use the buffer silo as a loading cell for trucks or railcars.
