The FAMA silos are ideal for the storage of metal chips in order to optimize their disposal operations. The horizontal silos are designed for internal installations, to safeguard valuable materials against theft and to optimize spaces.
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 horizontal silos are designed for interiors, in order to safeguard the content (brass, copper, stainless steel, ... materials of a certain value), and to optimise spaces. The area under the silo can in fact be used as a warehouse or to position other machines (washing machines, piece counters, ...). The trapezoidal section tank is emptied by a screw positioned at the bottom of the tank.

|Silo capacity||Brass||Steel||Aluminuum||Stainless steel||Copper||Cast iron|
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 premises and 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 screw conveyor, to ensure a safe and correct unloading procedure
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
