Due to their relatively low bulk density, flow properties, consistency, or static electricity, light-weight materials such as fibers tend easily to bridge when being stored and discharged. The purpose of the Fiber Silo is precisely to avoid this unwanted effect.
Low bulk density. Specially for the processing of fibers with a low bulk density. Also suitable for various flakes and powder.
Bulk density. Bulk densities of 50 to 100 g/m³ (0.05 to 0.1 kg/dm³).
Agitator shaft. The agitator feeds the material continuously towards the discharge screw.
Material size. Typical fiber lengths are 10 to 30 mm in length.
Feeding. Tangential feeding via pressure transport.
Conical. The conical design ensures a sloughing of the material and prevents bridging of the material.
Outlet. Up to 3 controllable material outlets possible.
Discharge. Consistent and adjustable discharge by means of separate discharge/ screw.
Manhole. Manhole with limit switches for better maintenance of the silo.
Volume. Volumes from 3 m³ to 50 m³.
Materials. Standard- or stainless steel.
Railing/vertical ladder. Optional, with guard rails on top and vertical ladder, including back protection.
Options. Other options and sizes available on request.
