Spirotech-SRD’s largest silo complete and ready for transport

Spirotech-SRD Group Ltd has just completed the design and manufacture of a stainless steel/mild steel hybrid silo for handling recycled plasterboard. 

The largest diameter silo transportable by road

The bespoke silo has been designed on what were very demanding parameters, with the silo diameter measuring 4.6m diameter, 4.9m diameter over the hip ring, and, at 14m long, making it the largest diameter silo transportable by road in one piece. 
 
The silo geometry was also challenging from a design point of view in that the base section has a flared out cone as opposed to a conventional cone section which flares inwards. This meant that the hip and mounting feet were outboard of the silo shell, thus creating additional stresses in the silo shell which had to be factored in to the overall design calculations.

On time despite complexities

Even with all the complexities presented to the design and production team, Spirotech designed and manufactured the silo on time and to a very high standard.
