RUBERG-High Capacity Silos

Design variations

RUBERG High Capacity Silos come in standard sizes of 1500 mm, 1800 mm, 2400 mm, 3000 mm, 3500 mm, 4000 mm, 4250 mm, 4500 mm diameter and have a overall length of max. 24000 mm.
Nevertheless, RUBERG High Capacity Silos can be customized to any diameter and length.

A silo design includes in the norma lockable door in the frame stand, a foundation ring for grounding in concrete, tanker filling pipe, vertical ladder, roof-mounted protection railings, manhole, venting sockets or filter connection flange, max. level indicator, min. level indicator silopilot.

RUBERG High Capacity Silos are available in aluminium AIMg 3, standard steel 1.0037, stainless steel 1.4301 and stainless steel 1.4571.

Other design variations are possible.

Single Chamber Storage Silo with Frame Stand // Double Chamber Storage Silo with Frame Stand // Storage Silo with entablature

RUBERG High Capacity Silos with contents from 2 to 400 cubic metres. Designed according to static calculations and available in the most diverse variations with either frame stand or entablature according to request or requirement. Frame stand construction includes base rings and foundation anchor rings.

The silos are constructed as a single piece out of large metal sheets so that minimal weld seams are visible, preserving the appearance.

Larger silos can be divided several times for storing more than one product in the same silo. Product can flow out either directly through the cells downstream or out to the side of the cells. Depending on the product and the requirement, the funnel angle can range between 30 and 60 degrees. Accessories such as level indicator, max. level and min. level indicator or filters are available upon request.

Each silo type can also be supplied with a weighing system.

Our manufacturing program also includes all the pneumatic or mechanical transporting equipment required for filling, emptying and conveying.

 



RUBERG High Capacity Blending Silos

Design variations

The basic construction of the RUBERG High Capacity Blending Silos is identical to the standard RUBERG High Capacity Silos except for the installed blending system. A bevel gear slip-on gear mechanism with reincorced bearings drives the mixing screw, eliminating the need for additional bearings. An axial step bearing holds the mixing screw at the bottom.

The blending system can be filled either mechanically or pneumatically. Sufficient ventilation must be guaranteed for pneumatic filling. Discharge occurs at the bottom via cone filter either laterally or in the centre.

For optimal control and maintenance, access hatchways can be installed on the side or on the roof. Full and empty indicators as well as silo pilots can be placed for checking the filling level.

RUBERG High Capacity Blending Silos can be manufactures in aluminium AIMg 3, standard steel 1.0037, stainlees steel 1.4301 or 1.4571.

Other design variations are possible.

RUBERG High Capacity Silos and High Capacity Blending Silos

RUBERG High Capacity Blending Silos are employed wherever single or multiple products must be mixed into a consistent, homogeneous compound.

Examples include

  • plastic industry granulates and recycling products
  • flours with baking ingredients in the food industry or the
  • animal feed industry.

The blending silos are all welded ensuring clean and watertight joints and are suitable for installation either inside oder outside.

The aluminium and stainless steel blender housings are totally weather and corrosion resistant.

Maintenance work on the outer housing itself is not necessary.
