The granary - one of the most important elements of the modern elevator allowing to store the long time grain, to ventilate or cool it, and if necessary - to carry out grain fumigation. Cylindrical metal the silo are intended for storage of all types of grain (wheat, corn, barley, rice, etc.), and also Pancake week cultures (sunflower, colza, soy).
Cylindrical metal the silo, happen two types:
- with the flat bottom which are equipped with the perforated floor and allow to air grain by means of fans, and also to cool it. For convenience of unloading, the granary with the flat bottom are completed with the cleanup screw which, rotating around own axis, collects the grain remaining balance which remained after gravitational unloading through unloading openings of the base of the silo.
- with the conical bottom which are generally applied as operational, to accumulation and wet temporary stowage (before drying) or dry grain (for the overload to the main granaries with the flat bottom, or for accumulation before shipment).
