Grain storage facility in Spain
Plant conceived for the storage of cereals located in Valladolid, Spain, with a total capacity of 19.000 m3 for the storage of 14.250 T of cereal.
The project includes
4 flat bottom silos model 17.57/15 of 4.570 m3 capacity each.
Grain silos have steel structures that allow their support or the support of the handling equipment:
The catwalk connects the existing factory with the elevator tower. This catwalk is 3 m wide and 68 m long, and houses 2 chain conveyors, with a capacity of 200 T/h each.
The facade catwalk connects the main catwalk with the fire escape.
The elevator tower is installed in facilities where the reception of grain is centralized in a group of elevators. In this case, the tower is made of tubular profile S275JR and is partially closed up to 11 m.
The 6.5 m. high access ladder allows access to the pit where the conveyor, which leads the product to the elevators, is located.
The intake pit warehouse – with a width of 6m, a height of 11 m and a length of 17.5 m – has a trapezoidal plate enclosure. The intake pit receives the product, that falls into the conveyor through a hopper.
