Dosing silos

Our dosing silos are delivered together with our briquetting presses and include a dosing screw. The dosing screw is controlled from the control panel on the briquetting press and ensures optimum feeding of the press. The silos are can be delivered in 1.5×1.5 m or 2.0×2.0 m with a variable height with volumes from 3 m3 to 12 m3.

The dosing silos has two main functions, namely, to be a small buffer for the briquet-ting press, but most importantly to secure a constant feed to the briquetting presses ensuring the highest possible capacity.

 The silo is built up in 3 important elements:

  1. The Dosing screw
  2. The silo itself
  3. The extraction unit*

The picture on the right show a silo with 4-6m3 gross volume: Prepared for two briquette presses, depending on capacity and density.

Which silo to choose?

The type of silo you need depends on the particle size, type and weight of the raw material. With very light raw material – 50-100 kg/m3 - it is possible to use a larger silo, whereas for more heavy material – 150-250 kg/m3 – will need a smaller silo, as the raw material is too heavy for a larger silo.
