Filling and emptying system for flat bottom silos

A conveying solution for the filling of silos can easily be based on pneumatics. It is only the pipes that need to go from ground level to the top filling point of the silo. The blower is placed on the ground and thereby easy to relocate and bring indoors during the off-season. No machinery and sensitive equipment are exposed to weather conditions during the whole year.

The solution is based on filling the grain directly into the blowing line, which maximizes the capacity, and makes it easy to follow the combine’s capacity. 

The blower is available in tractor-driven versions eliminating the demand for power supply and making the whole system more flexible. The same blower can be used for emptying the siloes with optional equipment.

Emptying of flat bottom siloes can be done efficiently by utilizing the pneumatic conveying system. At the bottom of the silo, a suction pipe going across the whole silo is installed.
