Bulk Storage Silos

Site-constructed silos, suitable for biogas, waste water treatment plants and aluminium smelters.

Industry Industrial Med
MHM Automation has partnered with BSP Engineering of Italy to provide bulk storage solutions to its Australasian market.

There are currently over 500 reference sites around the world including Boyne Smelters in Australia.

Utilising a spiral winding and folding technology the site constructed silos range from :

  • Up to Ø25m in diameter
  • 40m in height
  • Up to 25,000m3 in volume

The silos can be constructed from ferrous or non-ferrous metals including Inox and Stainless steel lined carbon steel. They are gas tight and are therefore suitable for biogas and waste water treatment plants. As well as the folded seam, thick walled silos can be partially folded and then fully welded to achieve the same result. Other options include a double skinned wall filled with concrete.

Primarily with flat bottomed base the extraction is preformed by a rotating screw and conveyance system. A maintenance access way is included for access to the central gear box and motor.

BSP Silo Extraction

Bulk materials are easily extracted by a 360° rotating sweep auger pulling the product to a centralized extraction point. A tunnel above, shown opposite, provides full time maintenance access to the drive. The hole under the tunnel allows for product extraction.

A proven solution for even difficult flowing products.
