Grain silos are not isolated structures. They have steel structures that allow their support or the support of the handling equipment, structures that allow access for maintenance, the connection with the machinery or with other installations within the facility, among many other functions.
The catwalks allow the support of the loading equipment and make it easier to maintain and operate the silo plant.
The support towers are specially designed to bear the loads from the catwalk by transferring them to the foundation directly.
The elevator towers are used in facilities where the reception of grain is centralized in a group of elevators or at port facilities.
The dome supports are placed above the top cover of the silo roof. There are different types based on the machinery performance and the type of catwalk.
The lateral supports are used for light machinery and additionally, oblique supports can be added to the lateral support depending on the silo and catwalk model.
Every steel structure has to be designed to fit the silo perfectly. Silos Córdoba keeps this harmony between structural systems, conveying systems and grain storage, and works with cutting edge technologies to provide efficient structural systems tailored to the particular needs of each installation, adding the value demanded by the new storage plants of today and tomorrow.
