Steel Silos

RULA design, manufacture and supply steel silos for a wide range of Bulk Materials handling applications


The steel silos are an integral component used in bulk materials handling systems. These silos are for basic storage vessels that require good discharge flow, reducing hang ups and blockages. The silos can be supplied with either flat bottoms or conical bottom sections with side or bottom discharge. The silos can be supplied with aeration pads to improve flow

Design features

- High quality with durability and more than 98% availability

- DEM flow simulations to have efficient flow geometry

- Silo plate wall thickness optimisation to reduce cost

- Liners as required to optimise flow and wear

Material of construction specifications

- Main steelwork: SANS 50025 Grade S 275 JR

- Plate work: SANS 50025 Grade S 275 JR

- Liners: Glass, Ceramic, HDPE, UMHP, VRN Plate liners


- Steel silos are purpose made in any size and shape to fit plant requirements

- Drilling arrangement to suit plant interface
