STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR NON-FREE FLOWING BULK MATERIALS

ESI Eurosilo is a solution provider in storage facilities for non-free flowing bulk solids and large quantities. Our highly automated silos offer maximum control in material handling, up to 100.000 m3, while saving operational costs and valuable space.

COHESIVE

One of the most challenging material characteristics is stickiness. Enclosed storage in a Eurosilo offers the required storage conditions and material handling systems to keep cohesive materials such as FGD Gypsum or crushed Limestone flowing.

COMBUSTIBLE

To achieve maximal fire protection when storing coal or pet coke requires high safety standards. A Eurosilo provides the safest storage in the market with systems to detect and prevent unfavourable conditions in de stored mass.

HYGROSCOPIC

For hygroscopic materials it is essential that moisture stays out and humidity is kept at a minimum. Fully enclosed storage with built-in sturdy screw coveyor systems offers the ultimate solution for materials such as salt or fertilizer.

LARGE

If you need to store large quantities, with very little space available, the only way is up. A highly automated Eurosilo can store up to 100.000 m3 of material at just a third of the footprint required for open stockpiles, while saving logistic costs as well.

VERY FINE

Storing non-free flowing materials with very small particles, such as potato starch, fly ash or filter dust, requires enclosed storage with specially designed output systems. The proprietary shutter column system enables you to handle these materials.

Space optimalization with efficient truck loading!

Space optimalization with efficient truck loading!

In our previous post we have informed you that we have succesfully commissioned the FGD Gypsum silo at the PKN Orlen site in Plock Poland. Today we want to share with you a picture with a very nice overview of the space saving truck loading station. The loading area with two truck loading lanes is fully integrated in the silo structure. So a seperate truck loading station and the connecting belt conveyors are eliminated. By doing so the overall footprint is minimized, the investment sum is reduced and the reliability is improved! How does it work? The truck can be positioned in either of the two lanes underneath the loading spout. The weight of tuck/gypsum load is registerd by a truck scale. After selecting the ammount of gypsum to be loaded by the driver, the proces starts and stops automatically at the preselected... read more
Hot commissioning FGD Gypsum silo

Hot commissioning FGD Gypsum silo

At the PKN ORLEN refinery in Plock Poland, the first real live filling process of their new 5,800 m3 FGD Gypsum silo was completed successfully. PKN ORLEN is a major oil refiner and petrol retailer, owning 7 refineries and over 2,000 stations in Poland. After extensive system tests of equipment and operation software (cold commissioning), the desulphurization unit was fired up to produce the input for the silo. An extensive team, including our supervisors, overlooked the test with life input (hot commissioning). We’d like to thank everyone for the great cooperation. The main reason for PKN ORLEN to work with the Eurosilo concept is the very limited space at the plant site in Plock. Therefore the dewatering system was built on top of the silo and load out directly underneath. Reliability and maximum uptime are essential, so we’re really pleased with the satisfaction and confidence of PKN in the system and our... read more

Largest potato starch silo

The world’s largest potato starch silo is now being constructed for KMC at Karup in Denmark. KMC is a leading Danish producer of potato starch and potato flakes. ESI Eurosilo was awarded the assignment to design, produce and install the internal machinery. We designed a huge central shutter column of about 55 meters high to fit the maximum capacity of 88,500 m3 of this huge silo. Production of the complete internal machinery is now on the way. The projects execution is on a very tight schedule, as the silo has to be ready for operation within this year. We are pleased to share with you an amazing time lapse video of the pouring of the concrete floor. Besides the largest potato starch silo, we are also involved in other projects in Slovenia and Polen.... read more

Midlife Conversion

Midlife Conversion

To keep capital expenses of our customers at a minimum, we perform more and more midlife conversions or retrofits of the silos that are being used. Keeping your production up and running for 20 to 30 years can’t do without a recurrent checkup and timely execution of updates of your installations. Besides technical conditions, a change of regulations can suddenly outdate your storage systems. Therefore, our customers request us to have a look and come up with the best fit for a solution. A midlife conversion is always a tailor made project, depending on circumstances and requirements. So if you have any questions regarding the technical state of your Eurosilo, just contact... read more
