Designed for the bulk storage of all products that due to their nature (shape, grain size, humidity, etc.) cannot be managed in a traditional container: fine-cut tobacco and tobacco leaves, aromatic herbs, small cubes of dried fruit, extra-fat flours, semi-wet pet food, waste products, etc.
Dynamic storage silos are made up of a supporting framework with a steel section; stainless steel product containment panels; a bottom belt; one or more motor-driven winding shafts for flaking the stored layers at the outlet point; a belt system running on tracks for a longitudinally and transversally balanced load. The levels are managed by optical probes.
The bottom belt is either made of a fabric tape with non-toxic PVC coverage or with a plastic or entirely metallic track.
The capacity is adapted to user’s needs with a maximum operating width of 2,700 mm.
Loading is driven by a control panel using a customized program. After the manufacturing process (i.e. tobacco after curing), the filling process is carried out by horizontal layers for a «resting storage». Between different manufacturing cycles (i.e. continuous manufacturing and packing) the filling process follows the ‘search for the first empty space’ method, creating a «safety buffer storage»; in this case the ‘first in – first out’ concept applies. The extraction and emptying speed is adjustable. The discharging winding shafts are built with different shapes to better fit product characteristics and guarantee a uniform product outflow without any mechanic damage to it.
