Keeping salt dry and safe

Due to the hygroscopic nature of salt, it is essential that moisture stays out and humidity is kept at a minimum level. Fully enclosed storage in a Eurosilo system offers a controlled environment inside and a well-protected environment outside. Your salt can be stored for a longer period thanks to the slotted column system for uncomplicated reclaiming. During reclaiming, the overhead bridge and the suspended auger frame with screw conveyors rotate while the two augers move the material towards the centre and push it into the slots of the slotted column. This open channel in the stored mass ensures that the product can freely descent towards an extracting device at the bottom of the silo. The Eurosilo system is a proven solution for Common Salt as well as Ammonium Sulphate, Potash and other hygroscopic products.


Case study K+S Kali GmbH

One of the challenges for ESI is to design silo systems that can be operated and maintained under harsh conditions. An outstanding example of this is the Eurosilo system that was supplied to K+S KALI GmbH at their  Sigmundshall plant located in Wunstorf, Germany. Considering the fact that the salt is mined underground, the temperature of the salt that’s stored in the silo can reach temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius. This means an attack on all electrical components; in particular the MCC cabinet, which…
