FAMA silos are intended for the storage of metal chips in order to optimize their disposal operations. The vertical silos are designed for outdoor installations, in particular for situations where it is preferable to place the silo against a wall to facilitate the truck passage. The discharge is lateral.
The FAMA silos are designed and sized to contain an adequate quantity of material in order to optimise the swarf disposal operations. The vertical silos are designed for outdoor installations, in particular for situations where it is preferable to place the silo against a wall and to keep trucks passing along the side of the silo. Due to their configuration and double discharge it is possible to divide the silo into two parts to manage double the material. The self-braking motor and the vertical door guarantee a certain security against theft. They also allow, with some ease, expansion of the volume, provided that the structure has been previously sized for this intervention.

|SILO CAPACITY IN KG|
|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 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 double door, 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
