Well thought-out solutions for sugar production: AMF-Bruns offers silo charging and discharging systems of the highest quality. Here we list the most important processes and advantages for you.
The perfect mix: By feeding the silo system with a proven AMF-Bruns feeding system, we achieve a largely uniform particle size distribution of the stored material. This leads to good mixing results during subsequent discharge. In addition, the silo volume is optimally utilized.
Discharge – hygienic and efficient
Most of the silo is discharged gravimetrically. During this time, therefore, no mechanical components need to be operated inside the silo and there are no mechanical components above the material column. This rules out contamination of the stored material by lubricants or falling components.
In addition, the silo above the silo cellar is entered through the central dome. Contamination from outside is therefore ruled out. Further advantages in terms of hygiene: The residual emptying system is largely dust-tight. All components can be cleaned very easily.
Further advantages in construction and operation
Our system is also convincing in terms of handling: By using manually or electrically movable metering screw conveyors in the silo cellar, the desired volume flow – within a defined range – can be set at any time. In this way, the discharge rate can be precisely adjusted. In addition, a quick response is possible, for example, in the event of operational malfunctions in the downstream area, without having to completely interrupt the discharge. In addition, there is little need for personnel: operation only needs to be monitored visually to prevent bridging. During normal discharge operation, the system runs automatically.
Last but not least, there are also static advantages in silo construction: This is because only a narrow cellar is required for the installation of the conveying technology below the silo.
