Silo design

We have the capacity to cater for all stages of your silo project according to your requirements. Our specialised team of engineers use state-of-the-art software to create detailed silo design to suit your project specifications and according to industry design codes. 
Our design team use sophisticated modelling software to provide simple, visual solutions to complicated questions, by taking into consideration the operating conditions and calculations of the space and loads that the silo tanks will be subjected to.

As an integrated solutions provider, we are also silo manufacturers capable of producing both custom-made silos and manufacture according to specific design codes. We have the capacity to produce large scale silo tanks at our manufacturing facility at Richard Alan House, as well as manufacturing structural steelwork, access platforms and process pipework. 
We offer handling, mixing and storage from 50kg hoppers to 50 tonne silos and above, plus tank packages ranging from 0.3 m³ to in excess of 35m³, manufactured to specific design codes or custom-made.

Silo installation and beyond

Our NEBOSH-qualified engineers are able to carry out full installations the completed silo tanks on-site, whether it be a local installation or a multi-million pound contract. Following all necessary health and safety protocols, our engineers can also provide mechanical testing and commissioning once installation is complete, as well as training for the client’s staff to ensure silo tank handovers are effective and efficient.
For an example of our silo tanks complete project management in action, see our polymer silo case study that we designed, manufactured, installed and commissioned for BASF.
