As one of concrete mixer manufacturers, DASION mainly produces cement storage silos such as low-level mobile silo and the static upright cement silos, which are used to hold and discharge cement and other powder materials such as PFA.

These mobile silos generally come equipped with an electronic weighing system with digital display and printer. This allows any quantity of cement or powder discharged from the silo to be controlled and also provides an accurate indication of what remains inside the silo. The static upright silos have capacities from 20 to 80 tons. These are considered a low-maintenance option for the storage of cement or other powders. Cement silos can be used in conjunction with bin-fed batching plants.

The types of cement storage silos have horizontal mobile silos, concrete silos, steel panel silo etc.While Mobile Silos come in a relatively small storage capacity of approximately 90MT of Cement, Concrete Silos can store practically thousands of MT of Cement. A majority of Silos that store more than 5000 MT of Cement are constructed from Concrete. A good compromise between cost, construction time and ease of operation is Steel Panel Silos. These silos can be manufactured in a factory, and then erected at site using small panels that are bolted together to form a Silo that is watertight because of a sandwiched layer of special rubber seals.

DASION provides service of silos installation, welcome to visit our factory and email to use.
