ENGINEERING

The Silomasters design has been performed optimizing resistance and durability.

Design and Production

All our Silos are manufactured in galvanized high strength steel.

Engineering applied with the latest technologies

The design of the cylinder and roof of our silos by our engineering department, has been made seeking to optimize its strength and durability. Another important aspect considered during the design process, has been to optimize the amount of steel used to lighten the total weight of our silos.

The reliability of our manufacturing process through the use of CNC punching machines, ensures that the holes of the screws for the joints fit perfectly. Corrugated sheets are manufactured from steel coils, which are supplied by quality controlled steel suppliers.

All our silos are made of high resistance galvanized steel S450GD, according to EN 10346, with a high elastic limit and aminimum Z600 coating, equivalent to 600 g/m2 of Zinc. High elastic limit steels have the same performance as conventional steels, but with less thickness and therefore less weight. They are ideal for the manufacturing of structural elements and parts that will be subjected to high dynamic and static stresses

The use of high resistance steel reduces the weight of the silos providing advantages in logistics, assembly and handling of the components in the place of assembly and the use of Z600 coating will extend their useful life. They are ideal for the manufacturing of structural elements and parts that will be subjected to high dynamic and static stresses.

Other important characteristics of this type of steel are:

  • It has a high degree to draw.
  • It admits hot galvanized processes.
  • Excellent bending and surface quality.
  • Good weldability with excellent strength and hardness in the heat-affected area.
  • High impact resistance, providing fracture resistance.

All components are designed in 3D, analytically calculated and structurally verified by Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Used norms

The two main norms used for the structural integrity of the Silos are the European EUROCODE and the American ANSI.
Norms EUROCODE / ANSI
In silos calculated according to EUROCODE, the loads and pressures acting on the walls of the silo are based on EN 1991-4 Actions on Structures: Silos and Tanks, and when calculated according to ANSI, the grain loads are based on ANSI / ASAE EP433.
Structural evaluation
The structural evaluation of the walls of the silo, whether we use one norm or another, is based on the following norms:

  • EN 1990 Basis of Calculation of Structures.
  • EN 1993 Eurocode 3: Steel structures.
