Grain Storage Silos
During grain storage, numerous factors may lead to deterioration in quality of the grain if the right storage option is not adopted at the right time. The key factors that cause deterioration are moisture content, temperature, arthropods, fungi, rodents and birds (occasionally). Grain Storage Silo is a revolutionary solution for grain storage that eliminates all the deterioration factors. The structure is made of ZincAlume Steel that reduces the solar absorption and drastically reduces the cost of aeration required for silos. KYMIK GRAIN STORAGE SILOS are available in Flat Bottom & Hopper Bottom in order to cater client’s specific requirements or any customization.
Flat bottom silos are designed and constructed in accordance to ASTM A:653 standard. They are highly recommended for storage above 500MT capacities. For easy discharge, a sweep auger is also fixed inside the flat concrete bottom.
Hopper bottom silos are fabricated to store grains, seeds, legumes, pellets and other farm products that require special storage conditions. The product that is stored inside stays off the ground to prevent moisture and lower the possibility of breakage. The hoppers have a 45° conical bottom to allow the total emptying by gravity. The support legs and frame are galvanized (Z600 or hot-dip galvanized). The inner ventilation in the hopper bottom silos are made up of highly-resistance perforated metal cylinders. The number and position on the silo cone guarantee even air distribution in the stored grain mass.
Kymik silos have robust frame and is designed to adhere to seismic and soil conditions.
