SILOS

To control quality and design flexibility, we have developed our own range of silos which as well as being used for projects, are now available as a standalone product.

Silos are primarily used by our customers as storage for the sorbent injection for acid reduction (sodium bicarbonate, hydrated lime) and for the collection of sorbent and ash from the bag filter (CleanPulse).

Welded Silos

Our supplied welded silos are complete and delivered on a flat back vehicle they are manufactured from 4 mm mild steel with a durbar plate top. The silos are 3380mm diameter and are provided with a length to suit the capacity required. Our standard silo has an overall height of 12,500 mm with supports and a clearance under the bottom flange of 2500 mm. This silo has a capacity of 70 m³.

Panelled (Bolted) Silos

Where access is limited we have designed a range of panelled silos which can be built up on site, internally or externally. These silos, along with the welded version can be supplied with a bottom skirt to contain spillages or provide weather proofing.

Our recent Projects

We were contracted to provide 2 small Ceramic filters suitable for a small volume but with a design maximum temperature of 600°C. In addition the filters will be handling a syngas which cannot be mixed with oxygen so an alternative to compressed air would need to be used for the ‘Cleanpulse’ cleaning of the 25 Ceramic element in each of these CPC78 filters. In addition dosing of small amounts of a re-agent is required so the client also opted for a ‘Cleandose’ 25kg bag skid. Find out more about Project CAD below.
