Storage Silo Applications
Plastics - Welded and Bolted
Our welded and bolted silos have become the industry standard. Our product testing services can determine the optimum design for reliable flow of plastic resin products. Common applications include welded carbon steel silos with AR-Lon 6100™ interior coating, skirted welded stainless steel silos, bolted or welded gravity blending silos, and welded aluminum silos on legs.
Dry Bulk - Welded and Bolted
Foremost provides original bolted design storage silos for grain/seed, wood and other dry products such as crushed rock dust, kiln dust, etc. There are grain storage silos that utilize “smoothwall” steel sidewall panels. Unlike light gauge corrugated panels, smoothwall construction is heavier, minimizes product hang-up and is designed for process requirements. When you are evaluating the need for quality storage that will stand the test of time, our silos should be at the top of your list.
Industrial - Welded and Bolted
Our bolted tanks are suitable for a variety of industrial liquids. Our factory-baked protective coatings for carbon steel and our stainless steel fabrication, coupled with a broad selection of gasketing and hardware, provide reliable storage solutions for numerous applications. Bolted tanks may be fitted with plastic encapsulated bolt heads and nut caps for additional protection. The economy of bolted tank fabrication, reliable assembly and proven quality are ideal for industrial liquid storage applications.
Mineral - Welded and Bolted
Our bolted silos are commonly used for mineral storage applications, including crushed rock, coal, granular materials and dust. Our abrasion resistant coatings are factory applied and baked. Mineral dry bulk storage silos with hopper bottoms can be erected on structures. They can also be skirted for truck or even railcar loadout. Our XL bolted silos have also been used on large scale cogeneration projects and other specialized applications.
