Silo Accessories

Universal Engineers and Manufacturers have established a new seperate factory for manufacturing of silos in 2007 and with this investment Universal has gained high capacity in manufacturing of cement silos. Bolted type cement silos which are manufactured in different capacities, provide great advantages especially in transportation. For example, 2 units 100 tons bolted type cement silos can be transported by only 1 TIR.

The parts of the silos are manufactured by special laser cutting and drilling technologies and they are implemented special surface cleaning procedure. The parts of the cement silos also are manufactured in sensitive production facilities with special equipments and they are painted with prime coating and final coating.

Cement silo has required legs which give opportunity to feed cement to the cement batcher with screw in suitable angle. Cement silo has ladder and upper parapets. Silo has mechanical valve in discharge part. Silohas cement filling pipe. The parts of the cement silos are manufactured by special laser cutting and drilling technologies and they are implemented special surface cleaning procedure. All components are performed by chemical surface cleaning procedure and after that coating a nd painting. 2 units cement silo can be transported by one truck, which means minimum transport cost.

WE manufacture silos for different application for storage of cement, flyash ,feeds,grainsetc in different capacities ranging from 50 cu.mtr to 5000 cu.mtr in Mild steel, Aluminium, Stainless steel etc.


Cement Silo Maximum-Minimum Level Indicator


level indicator

Cement level indicator is a limit value indicator that is used to check the cement filling volume in the cement silo. This indicator is used to determine the maximum and minumum level of the cement in the cement silo by using of rotary motion.

When the cement amount in the cement silo reaches the turning pedal of the indicator, there occures a signal shows that the cement amount has reached to that level. When the cement amount goes down under the indicator level, the turning pedal starts to move again and thus the other units of the system start to move too. Cement level indicators usually are used to determine filling level of the material which has 0,5-2,0 ton/m³ density in the cement silo and mostly they are assembled on bottom and top parts of the cement silo.


High Pressure Safety Valves


Safety valves

High pressure safety valves are used the discharge the high pressure in the cement silo. Those valves start to run when the pressure value reaches the pre-set pressure limit value. Those valves are the equipments that keeps the pressure in the cement silo in desired values and prevent the cement silo filter from breaking down.

The cement is transferred from bulker to cement silo with high pressure. In case there is no cement in the bulker, only the air is transferred into the cement silo and thus there occures high pressure in the cement silo. At this moment if high pressure safety valves do not start to run , the cement silo and the cement silo filter can be damaged seriously.


Cement Silo Screw


Cement Silo Screw

The Cement Screws are used to transfer the cement from big bags and bags to cement silo and cement batchers. Cement screws are manufactured by Universal in different capacities and diameters by using latest technology. Universal manufactures 2 different type of cement silos according to application ; cylindrical type and semi-open type. Universal cement screws which have galvanized maintenance covers and special intermediate bearings, also are equipped with central lubrication system. This system is designed to provide operating convenience to our customers and is implemented in all Universal cement screws as standart. Universal cement screws are manufactured at Ø168, Ø219, Ø273 ve Ø323 diameters.



Cement Silo Fluidizing System


Silo Fluidizing System

Fluidizing system involves distribution pipe and nozzles. Distribution pipe is assembled into cement silo by fixing parts that are pre-assembled in to the cement silo. This system makes the cement in the cement silo bloated out. The advantage of this system does not harm the metal structure of the cement silo like the systems with vibrators do.



Cement Silo Filter System

SILOTOP FILTER is a cylindrically shaped dust collector for venting of pneumatically filled silos. The stainless steel body contains vertically mounted, POLYPLEAT® filter elements. The air jet cleaning system is integrated in the hinged weather protection cover.SILOTOP Filter has Compact 800mm (30in) diameter 304 stainless steel body with bottom flange, 24.5m2 (264 sq ft) filter surface, High filtration efficiency due to POLYPLEAT® filtering elements, Low dust emission level due to B.I.A.-certified filter media, Maintenance-free air jet cleaning unit integrated inside weather protection cover;

  • Safe weather protection cover with lockable snap hook
  • No tools required for filtering element removal
  • Robust design
  • Perfectly accessible due to compact design
  • Complete replacement of filter media by only one person within a few minutes
