FMW Storage Solution – Round Silo Storage

Maximize Efficiency and Reliability in Biomass Storage and Discharge

In the rapidly growing bioenergy industry, inconsistent material flow and blockages in biomass storage and discharge systems can lead to reduced productivity, increased maintenance costs, and potential disruptions in bioenergy production. To overcome these challenges, a reliable and efficient solution is needed.

Introducing the Round Silo Storage

The Round Silo Storage for Biomass features an efficient and economical operation, fully automated for convenience and precision. The closed storage design ensures the safety and integrity of the stored biomass, while the indicator of the actual storage volume helps in efficient management and planning. This system is suitable for a wide range of materials including wood chips, biomass, and sludge. It offers a high storage capacity, making it ideal for long-term storage of biomass feedstock.

FMW’s Round-Silo Discharge System is a cutting-edge solution designed to ensure a consistent flow of materials, preventing blockages and ensuring uniform chip distribution. This system is perfect for clients that demand precise material handling and controlled chip discharge, helping to optimize biomass storage and discharge processes.
