Hopper bottom silo
hopper bottom silo also named as cone bottom silo, hopper bottom storage bins, refers to silo with a cone bottom. Generally, a funnel is needed in the silo for most material storage. For small silo storages, the steel hopper/cone can be fixed with the sidewalls. However forindustrial silos with large diameter, to reduce the risk, the hopper/cone is designed to be supported by the silo bottom floor.
According to the customers’ requirements and situations, the shape of the hopper or cone will be designed specifically to achieve the needs of the products to be stored. For some products such as food and grain, dangerous and safety concerns need to be eliminated.
