The construction of a new paddy rice storage facility in Thailand has begun. It will include 3 flat bottom silos and will have a total capacity of 19,000 tons.
The storage Project for paddy rice in Thailand, with a total capacity of 21.500 m3, is already up and running in Ubon Ratchathani Province.
In metal silos, caking usually occurs on the bin walls as a result of sweating or moisture condensing on the inner surface of the cold bin wall. The condensing moisture is absorbed by the adjacent grains resulting in either sprouting or mold growth.
Another of the indicators that will help you to detect any possible problems with the products storage inside the silo is the mustiness and off-odor condition. Musty odor usually indicates an advanced stage of insect or mold infestation and should be dealt with immediately.
