Container Silo


Container Silo

Bourne from P-Systems design ethos of utility, the container silo was designed to have the same dimensions as a standard hooklift container. It also features the same two part hinged rear gate.

The lower rear gate lifts up to accept an unloading auger, which conveys the material across the mouth of the container into an unloading auger or pneumatic transfer system. A hydraulic moving floor empties the container into the cross auger.

The container is powered by a hydraulic power pack. The container is connected by quick release couplings and sensors within the unloading cross auger control the operation. Containers can be used as permanent silos or quick changed.
