Silos

Used industrial silos for powders and granules

The temporary storage of solid materials involved in an industrial process requires the use of silos for raw materials or the collection of finished products. These silos can be closed or open, operate under pressure or gravity, and may have a simple outlet or be equipped with a valve. Are you looking for this type of equipment to integrate into a production process? At Foeth, you will always find a large stock of used silos for the food, pharmaceutical, or chemical industry.

What differentiates an industrial silo from a vertical tank?

At first glance, a silo may appear similar to a vertical tank. Both have a central body, typically a cone-shaped bottom for easy discharge, and a roof. However, there is a difference in the nature of the stored materials. A vertical tank is primarily used for storing liquids or pastes, whereas a silo is typically used for storing materials in solid form, such as powders, grains, or granules.

In terms of strength, silos are always more robust than vertical tanks due to the difference in density between a liquid and a solid material. For example, a 1,000-liter (1 m³) vertical tank containing alcohol must be able to withstand a mass of 790 kg, as the density of alcohol is approximately 790 kg/m³. In contrast, an industrial silo with the same capacity and filled with cement must be able to support 3,000 kg, as the density of cement is around 3,000 kg/m³.

Why should you buy a used industrial silo?

In terms of storage efficiency and safety, industrial silos are manufactured with materials that meet international quality standards. In most cases, high-quality stainless steel is used, and the manufacturing processes (shaping, welding, etc.) are carried out with great precision. As a result, both horizontal and vertical silos have a long lifespan and retain their mechanical and chemical properties for decades.

Buying a used silo is always cost-effective, provided that the supplier tests and inspects the machines to ensure they are in perfect working condition. This is exactly what Foeth does! All equipment is tested and inspected before being shipped worldwide. If you have a project that requires equipment, feel free to ask us for personalized guidance in acquiring a high-quality used silo, like an AZO silo, at an unbeatable price!
