Healthy Feed Silos

If we list the advantages of using silos; in this method, service is provided directly from the producer instead of the seller. Silos are filled in a very short time. Therefore, long-term porterage work is not required during shipment. It provides different usage areas by discharging the areas used for the storage area in businesses.

Feed silos are the most ergonomic feed storage tools needed by farms. The silo helps you get the maximum efficiency by protecting the feed against all kinds of dangers. Feed, which is a mixture of one or more raw materials, constitutes the most important input of the livestock sector. Storage quality is as important as the content quality of the feeds. The best quality storage is provided with feed silos.

Feed silos with diameters ranging from 1.83 meters to 3.66 meters have a maximum capacity of 77 m³. The 30o and 40o angled designs of feed silo roofs contribute to these capacities as they increase the feed storage volume. Since poultry feeds have a smaller granular structure, feed silos with low diameters are preferred for this kind of feed. In stockbreeding farms, feed silos with large diameters are preferred because of the large pellet structure of the feeds. Feed silos are low cost and easy to install.

Feed silos are more durable and long-lasting with their corrugated and galvanized sheet structure. The amount of galvanized coating in the silos is preferred based on the frequency of filling and discharging of the silo, natural events such as humidity, wind, and the sand storm that affect the area that silos are to be installed. Due to its galvanized structure, feed silos are resistant to external factors. That structure prevents corrosion of feed silos and ensures that feeds are stored in a healthy environment. Therefore, that structure plays an important role in animal health.

Insulation strips that are used in roof panels of feed silos and at the joints of wall sheets and are resistant to heat and cold and they perfectly ensure impermeability during all seasons. The silo body is mounted on one-piece galvanized feet. Durable corner iron brackets between the legs contribute to the stability and balance of the silo. In order to transfer the silo weight to the ground more healthily, steel plates are placed under each leg and anchored. Silo wall sheets and stiffener connections are made with bolts. For a perfect impermeability at bolt joints, high density conical polyethylene gaskets are used.

The design of feed silos also includes more than one optional accessory;
• Side discharge kit can be preferred for quicker and easier unloading of product from the silo.
• Conical access door ensures easy cleaning of the silo after discharge
• The feed sight glass is designed for external control of the product in the silo.
• High Resistance Bakelite Chamber is produced for 440 mm diameter as standard. It provides flexibility and durability in the connection between the silo and the conveying elements. It can also be observed when the product is flowing.
• Thanks to the specially designed filling-discharging pipes used in pneumatic systems and special locking lid, silo filling-discharging is enabled by using air system.
• Spring coils are produced for 90 mm diameter as standard.
• Special project designs are made for engines belonging to feed transport groups, feed landing pipes, electrical panel and PVC transport pipes according to requested distances.

The feeds can be filled and discharged into the silo by mechanical or pneumatic systems depending on user preferences. In order for easy discharge of the feed inside the silo and for better feed fluidity, the bottom of the silo is conically designed. To prevent product accumulations on the conical base, the connection bolts used in conical base connections are preferred as conical heads. Feed silos, which are also integrated with feed transport systems, allow the feed to be transported automatically from the silo to the place where it is consumed. Storage and transport systems that are needed from transporting feeds to facility to feeding process can be designed in the farms depending on the needs.

Therefore, long-term porterage work is not required during feed shipment. It provides different usage areas by discharging the areas used for the feed storage area in businesses. It eliminates the risk of mold due to liquid contact and similar moistening. Since it does not require bagging, it does not generate any harmful material waste to the environment. There is no need for pest control to protect the feed.

Since the human factor in the porterage position decreases, some disease factors also are eliminated. Because feed is provided in an automated manner from feed silos to feed transport systems, healthy animals grow in a completely hygienic environment. It provides ease of use and time saving during feeding.

In order to carry this sector ahead, constant betterment is carried out, and we have engineers that work for hours to address needs. Thus, these systems will continue to receive attention farmers and corporates that contemplate for easiness and professional approach.
