Vertical Silo for storage of wood chips and biomass

Silos manufactured in carbon steel, with automated extraction system or rapid discharge by drawers.

Vertical Silo for storage of wood chips and biomass

We provide solution for storing all kinds of biomass, through modern silos with automated extraction systems or rapid discharge by drawers. Carbon steel structure of high quality, constructed to enable easy assembly and disassembly in the field.

Reception Hopper

Equipment used to receive chips from suppliers or from chipping line, which are discharged into the hopper provided with screw or chain, allowing constant discharge flow up to the storage or silo. 

Classification System – Scalper Screen 

Applied to regulate and classify chips size, segregating oversize chips or fines according to system requirements. 

Bucket Elevator

Vertical conveying to handle and transfer chips at high elevations, allowing its discharge into storages or silos. Designed according material characteristics, density, filling degree and volume, among others.

Silo discharge – By-pass

Discharge at storage through screw conveyor with guillotine chute to result in a uniform chips distribution.

The system foresees a deviation (By-pass) of the material up to the Boiler, keeping the system operating even during maintenance.

Silo Reclaimer

Cantilever screw reclaimer, discharges the stored material in a constant and uniform output, avoiding chips bridging.

Belt conveyors – Boiler feeding

Handle and convey chips following strict international standards, which considers material characteristics as angle of repose, density, filling degree and volume, among others.
