Our robust, high-performance storage vessels range from sack-tip hoppers to large-volume silos up to 15 metres in diameter, with capacities from 10m3 up to 5,000m3. Bespoke silos up to 4.6 metres in diameter can be manufactured in one piece and delivered by road. Larger silos are fabricated in sections and assembled on site. Specifying the correct silo size and geometry for the material you need to store is essential for safe storage and effective discharge of any dry bulk material. Portasilo can advise you on the optimum vessel design for your specific requirements, and manufacture precisely the silos you need to store your materials safely and without deterioration.
Our in-house material laboratory enables us to test an extensive range of materials to determine their flow characteristics to enable us to design and specify the correct silo geometry to prevent bridging and to provide “Mass Flow” discharge. Each silo is designed specifically for your project, and you can choose from carbon, steel, stainless steel or aluminium, depending on the nature of the material you wish to store and your budget. All our steel silos are manufactured under carefully controlled conditions to BS EN and Eurocode standards. The structural integrity of your silo is assured by welding to international standards by our experienced team of accredited welders.
