Silo Storage & Discharge Systems

STB provide creative bulk storage silos, silo discharge solutions and innovate feed and conveying systems, for the storage and handling of food ingredients, plastic pellets, powders and polymers, fine chemicals and mineral storage.

Silo discharge systems we offer in this range include:

  • Silos, process vessels, hoppers and bins in carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium
  • Discharge devices engineered to suit the product and applications
  • Feeding and conveying systems including screw conveyors, pneumatic conveyors, belt and bucket conveyors, rope and disc, air slide conveyors, vibratory conveyors and vibratory feeders

STB Engineering’s manufacturing division designs, fabricates, builds and installs all types of bulk storage silos. From tanker delivery to silo and corresponding downstream distribution, STB can offer a complete solution for bulk storage and discharge transfer. Silos manufactured in aluminium and stainless steel makes them easily cleanable, hygienic and long-lasting storage solutions.

Other benefits of STB bulk storage silos include the enabling of processing operations to reduce inventory costs, labour, and materials whilst increasing the line-up time throughout.

The design and geometry of a silo and its discharge system can affect the way products are discharged. The pattern of flow and type of discharge is dependent on many factors, but the two main types are:

CORE FLOW (also known as Funnel Flow)

When it comes to the silo discharge with core flow, most silos, hoppers and bins give core flow due to the shallow cone and small outlet which is usually set by the materials flow and friction factor.
