Grain silo, also named grain bin, grain storage silo, is a large grain storage container. As its name suggests, grain storage silo is used to store agriculture products for home appliance or large granary projects. Grain silo is widely used to store grains like rice, corn, wheat, soybean, barley, sorghum, sunflower seeds, palm kernel, buckwheat, millet, bran, peas, beans, rapeseeds, beet seeds, peanut, rye seeds, flour, feed, minor cereals, and other bulk granular crops, etc. Generally speaking, grain silos can be timber silos, plastic silos, cement silos and steel silos.

Grain Silo's Application Methods

Before storage, remove the impurity in the grains as far as possible. Usually we adopt the method of winnowing to remove the grain pests, straw, flat, weed seeds, sand and other impurities. Grains sufficient drying must be ensured before storage. Several grain storage methods are as follows:

  • Ordinary storage: Grains must be cleaned and dried, then put them into grain silos with the suitable temperature, sealed silo’s import and export, make sure a good pest control, moisture-proof, anti-rat and daily grain inspection work.
  • Heat sealed storage: This method is the use of high temperature in summer. The grain temperature is increased after hot warehousing and achieved the insecticidal effect.
  • Natural anoxic storage: Natural anoxic storage is only suitable for the new harvest wheat. The storage method is as the follows: Clean the new crop of wheat and then dry them as soon as possible in the sun. Put the dried wheat into grain silo within one week. Special attention should be paid to the import and export of grain silo’s tightness. During the natural anoxic storage, workers must have a regular investigation and inspection of import and export of grain silo and make sure the whole barn in good condition. If the seal is not strict or damaged, it cannot reach the effect of anoxic storage.
  • Storage of mixing and protective agent: The protective agent is specially used to mix to a class of grains and chemical control of stored grain insect infection. Protective agents cannot be used for rice and flour. Gloves and gauze mask should be used for mixing and using.

From the above methods of grain storage, we can see special terms should be met like the storage environment, temperature, humidity, sealing etc. Flyer grain storage silo just meets all these requirements. 

Flyer Grain Storage Silo's Featured Advantages
