A circular silo is the only piece of equipment that enables a supply of absolutely homo-geneous, uniformly moist body for giving shape to green products with low stress and texture levels. The unique souring and homogenizing effects of circular silos are relatable to the “first in – first out” principle in combination with hermetically sealed storage and the raw material’s own weight pressure. Circular silos are avail-able with standard storage capacities up to 500 m³ and discharge capacities ranging from 8 m³/h to 50 m³/h (depending on the velocity of flow and the material composition).
The discharging auger rotates around the tower axis of the silo. The material outflow takes place via a central outlet chute from which material can be drawn off in any arbitrary direction.
HÄNDLE’s discharging mechanism, though, is designed to reliably prevent bridging and guarantee smooth discharging of slow-flowing material.
