STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR NON-FREE FLOWING BULK MATERIALS
Tailormade Proven Expertise No Block Ups Cost-effective Flexible Partnership
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.
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.
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. Find out more…
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.
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.
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.
How to avoid hygroscopic products to block due to high moisture? For customers in the Chemical industry, we have developed a reclaim solution that eliminates the risk of blockage: the proprietary slotted column.
Fine powders like fly-ash, potato starch and filter dust tend will fluidize when handled. To respond to this specific issue of our customers, ESI Eurosilo has developed and deployed the shutter column system.
