The storage tanks, or rather silos, are used in situations, where bulk have to be temporarily stored. Silos serve as buffer for continuous processes as spray-drying, or for long lasting processes as batchwise thermal drying. The positive effect of using silos is, that follow-on processes, as filling the bulk into drums, can be time optimised and the efficiency can be increased.
- CIP cleaning with nozzles, spray balls and bottom outlet valve
- Executions with vibrators, fluidisation nozzles etc. to prevent bulk hold up and bridge building
- Expendable with different clamp or screw connections for exhaust, gas inlet or measurement of process parameters as pressure, O₂ content, temperature etc.
- Outlet with segmented ball valve for regulating the bulk flow
- Executions on load cells
