The FAMA silos are intended for the storage of metal chips in order to optimize their disposal operations. The bridge silos are designed for outdoor installations.The discharge is placed on the bottom of the silo and can be a bucket or a guillotine.
FAMA silos are storage tanks for swarf accumulation. They are designed and sized to contain an adequate quantity of material in order to optimise swarf disposal operations. The bridge-type silos are designed for outdoor installations, in particular for situations where there is little space available and it coincides with the access road to the warehouse. The arched structure allows the transit of trucks under the silos. The doors on the bottom of the silo can be guillotine or clamshell type depending on the swarf.

The data in kg is approximate and in any case depends on the density and shape of the swarf.
The dimensions of the silo are established according to the production needs. It is normally suitable for holding a week of production or more
The height of the columns of the support structure are established based on the height of the truck container
The chip containment tank undergoes a sandblasting and painting cycle with organic zinc plating, while the support structure is completely hot galvanized.
The silo is equipped with a door with controlled opening, to ensure a safe and correct unloading procedure, allowing perfect dosing and distribution of the chip on the truck
The support structure is accompanied by a certified structural calculation report
The anchor bolts for fixing the silo to the ground must be embedded in the concrete. Depending on the type of soil, it is possible to create plinth or inverted beam foundations
