Central Slotted Column for Cohesive Materials
Required conditions and right material handling to keep FGD Gypsum or crushed Limestone flowing
In order to eliminate block-ups caused by the poor flow properties of FGD Gypsum or crushed limestone, we designed a central slotted column for smooth reclaiming. The material is fed through the slots formed by the horizontal flat rings, and freely descends down the column. Our silos for sticky products are also equipped with a drainage system at the bottom to prevent a sticky layer in the lower regions of the silo. In addition, we have developed a system that creates under-pressure in the dewatering system. The complete system will improve logistic flexibility while it preserves the condition of the stored material.
Cost efficient all-in-one solution
The Eurosilo storage solution for FGD Gypsum incorporates three vital functions at the smallest possible footprint. Dewatering, storage and load out are all located in one fully automated silo system. Compared to shed storage this adds up to numerous advantages. Instead of a separate dewatering, storage and load out facility – needing operators, power shovels and transport – there is only one cost effective solution. Not only will it reduce the required space to a third, it will also minimize the required headcount and improve operational reliability in handling FGD Gypsum or other cohesive material. Compared to conventional silos with a bottom discharge plow feeder system, our system increases the storage period from a few days to more than three months without the risk of block ups.
- Maximum logistic control & flexibility
- Minimal operating and maintenance costs
- High availability due to minimal downtime
- Minimal footprint for large scale storage
- Built in dewatering & load out underneath
- No block ups with FGD Gypsum or crushed limestone
Over 60 plant-sites use the FGD Gypsum Eurosilo
Storing FGD Gypsum requires innovative solutions that space saving, cost-efficient and utmost reliable in handling cohesive bulk material. The FGD Gypsum Eurosilo has become a renowned system to solve all storage issues, such as poor flow characteristics, limited space and logistic efficiency. We have engineered and built this system over 60 times at plant sites in Asia, Europe and the US.
