Silos

Silos

A silo is a structure for storing bulk materials. Silos are used in agriculture to store grain or fermented feed known as silage. Silos are more commonly used for bulk storage of grain, coal, cement, carbon black, woodchips, food products and sawdust. Three types of silos are in widespread use today: tower silos, bunker silos, and bag silos.

Grain silos contain a conveyor, bucket elevator, chute system or both that deposits the grain into the silo. The grain is usually loaded at the top of the silo. Another system set up at the underneath the silo to removes the grain when it is time to allocate it by different transportation methods around the country. The grain is put into the silos by gravity and motorized transportation. The grain then slides down into the feature. Gravity and the weight of the grain give the pressure that packs the grain into the silo. The time to move the grain out of the silo, an opening at the base of the silo is opened. Pressure from the weight of the grain pushes it out of the silo. This is joined with a bucket or conveyor system that moves the grain back to a higher point. It is then dropped into a chute that drops it by way of gravity to the distribution containers.
