Loading and unloading


Loading of grain can be done using a mobile conveyor belt which will move around the center of the silo container with a longitudinal route from one head to the other, or the auger; similarly applied to the previous case or from outside in a transverse way to the lateral walls of the bunker. Another way of loading it is by the installation of a fixed mechanization system located on the upper center of the bunker longitudinally set. It consists of reticulated structural columns supporting an auger, horizontally applied with an input hopper in both ends, in the two opposite heads. The grain will enter the hoppers and from there it will dump on the floor, from where it will begin to accumulate until a natural slope is formed to the height of the augers that are going to carry the grain along the deposit to complete maximum storage capacity.
