Stainless Steel and Aluminium Pressure Vessels and Technical Silos for the Food Industries

The storage capacity of a silo is primarily determined by its height and diameter; however consideration needs to be given to how the silo is filled and emptied. When powder is loaded into the top of a silo, it forms a cone. Therefore, additional free space called ullage or headspace is required to accommodate this cone. The space required is determined by the powder's flow characteristics. Barton will provide advice on necessary heights for this section during silo design.
