Bulk storage and silos

With a product history that dates back to 1948, PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel (GFtS) silos provide clean and efficient bulk storage of a variety of products, grains, and forage.

Bulk Solid Storage

PERMASTORE® silos can take advantage of it's exceptional epoxy coating or the inert and exceptional abrasion resistance properties of Permastore’s FUSION® GFtS coatings presenting a hygienic, low friction surface for stored product.

The designs of the silos are tailored to suit specific material properties and allow for a range of loading (filling) and unloading (discharge) systems.

They also can incorporate roofs, cones and connections for pipework and sensors.

Some of the bulk storage applications include:

  • Food Production
  • Carbon Black
  • Limestone
  • Plastics
  • Soya Meal
  • Coal
  • Fishmeal
  • Powders
  • Road Salt
  • Grains or other whole or milled food stuffs

Agricultural Silos

With a product history that dates back to 1948, PERMASTORE® GFtS silos provide a proven system to store livestock feed such as haylage, maize and high moisture grains in a technically efficient, waste-free way.  The secure sealed system of storage with capacities from 250 to 1400 metric tonnes (275 to 1540 US tons) gives significant benefits to livestock producers including:

  • Maximised nutrient value of the feed with lower moisture loss
  • Natural conservation without use of chemicals
  • Natural suppression of diseases and weeds by the dark, oxygen limiting environment
  • Harvesting flexibility and buffer storage for existing grain storage systems
  • Permits earlier harvesting to eliminate drying costs
  • Traceability of inputs for accreditation schemes
  • High quality feed grain
  • No drying costs
  • Greater palatability for livestock
  • High digestibility for livestock
  • Exclusion of vermin and birds
  • Suitability for organically grown produce
  • High animal growth rates and feed conversion efficiency
