Types of Silos for Agriculture
There are various types of silos that are used to store silage and grain. Here are some examples:
Tower silo: typically unloaded from the top using mechanical unloaders. There are three basic styles of tower silo:
- Monolithic silo: sold as a “strong” silo. Monolithic silos can be divided into two or more compartments to contain different products.
- Steel/glass lined silo: marketed as “oxygen controlled” as they use air bags. Though they work better in certain cases, steel/glass lined silos are more expensive when built.
- Concrete stave silo: competitively priced, but can be ordered and built within a short time period. These are usually unloaded using a different method, with augers at the top of the silo that blow grain towards the centre and out through doors on the side.
Bunker silos: inexpensive trenches that are filled and packed using tractors and loaders. Covered with a plastic tarp, these airtight silos are typically unloaded using a tractor and loader.
Bag silos: heavy plastic tubes that are unloaded using a tractor and loader, or skid-steer loader. Typically designed as a temporary measure.
Bins: typically used for storing dry products, like cement or grain, and use under-floor grain unloaders.
