Resumen:
Una pyme francesa especializada en fabricación de calderas, estructuras metálicas y funciones de integración ha desarrollado un equipo para vaciar silos de semillas de fondo plano (metal o cemento) o almacenes. Se trata de un sinfín barredero con sistema avanzado para vaciar materiales sólidos (cereales, semillas, pellets, etc.) que evita la intervención humana en el silo al llevar a cabo las operaciones de descarga y, por lo tanto, el riesgo de accidentes y la realización de tareas arduas. La empresa busca fabricantes de silos o compañías de ingeniería para integrar este equipo en sus soluciones.

Tittle:
Semi-automatic system to secure the end of unloading of silos in agro industry
Summary:
A French SME specialized in boiler making, metal structures and integration functions, has developed a secured equipment to empty flat-bottomed grain silos (metal/concrete) or storage buildings. This is an industrial sweep-auger with soft advancing system to pull solid materials (cereals, seeds, pellets...) and so avoids human support in silos when performing a discharge operation. The SME seeks manufacturers of silos or engineering companies to integrate this equipment in their complete solution.
Description:
A French company has over 90 years of experience in the design and manufacture of industrial facilities mainly in agro industry and also in mines and careers, water treatment, public workings.

In 2015, the company launched a new business activity, through the design and manufacturing of equipment, for easy flowing products in silos at the end of their emptying, by gravity. This new business activity began through port industrial facilities requesting heavy duty equipment able to load ships.

The equipment avoids any human assistance inside silos during discharge operations: this is an answer to the requirements of insurance companies to stop the risk of accidents inside silos (strong injuries) and also avoid painful tasks or diseases for the operators.

The equipment is composed of long metallic frame which protect a screw which is longer than the radius of the silo. At the back of it, the frame is fitted with wheels in contact with the silo ground to ensure the advance of the equipment around the silo axle. The screw and the wheels rotates thanks to only one electric motoreducer which is powered in 400V.

When the silo is full, the equipment stands inside at the bottom. User starts the equipment when the silo is quite empty.

Technical specifications:
High-capacity discharge: flow rate up to 700m3/h (for 32m diameter silo)
-Large storages: equipment can work inside silos with diameter up to 40m
-Discharge all type of grains (cereals, oleaginous, seeds, soya seeds, rice, paddy...) or pellets.

The French professional team experimented in handling machinery for grains/pellets has been working on a range of equipment. A complete machine has been manufactured, tested and approved by end users in a demonstration silo of 30m of diameter.

Equipment are existing in two versions:
-Type « M » for cereals silos with diameter up to 22m,
-Type « L » for all types of grains and pellets, all silo sizes.

Motoreducer can be installed inside the silo or inside the tunnel (outside the silo).

Systems and equipment are designed on industrial bases for heavy duty applications. The adequate installations can be inside the round silos or storage buildings located in port facilities, in multimodal storages.

The French company is looking for partners willing to gain a competitive advantage to better serve their clients. It offers its partners to integrate this equipment to improve their existing solutions.
Advantages and Innovations:
New soft advancing system:
-Easy penetration of the screw inside compacted products
-Regulated thrust of the screw into the products
-Optimal filling rate of the screw for efficient unloading time
-High efficiency of the screw close to the silo wall
-Screw continuously maintained close to the ground
-Energy saving

Industrial design for intensive use:
-Heavy duty design
-Efficient and long lasting mechanical design
-Perfect stability of the equipment under the charge
-High resistance to products collapsing
-High rigidity
-Special design to minimize retention areas

Safety minded:
-Equipment allowing zero human entry inside the silo during operations to protect operations from injuries or diseases.
