Being aware that high-quality production is only possible by specialized personnel, modern production techniques and full-automated production, MAFAL Magnelis silos and conveyance equipment are designed by the product development/design department to address all grain storage requirements and produced accordingly.
High-quality Magnelis ZM310 sheets used in silo production resistant to 450 MPA tension and rust. MAFAL offers different silo options, including flat and conical-bottom silos, starting from a diameter of 4,51 m diameter to 31,60 m.
To be able to carry the vertical loads on the silo, vertical suspension supports mounted on the silo surface are used to yield maximum strength. MAFAL vertical suspension supports perfectly distributes the pressure put by the grain in the silo on the side walls of the silo over the bottom of the silo.
To ensure maximum strength at all joints in MAFAL steel silos, Cr+3 White passivation + Lac coated bolts, grade 10.9 are used. To make the silos airtight and waterproof, special sealing elements are used on metal sheets on the silo frame and on the joints of upper roof.
There are safe access doors that can be easily opened and closed on the second floors, and observation lids on the roofs of all MAFAL silos. The silo access door has two layers; the outer layer is made up of a single piece of zinc-plated sheet, and the inner layer is made up of two doors placed one on top of the other. If the grain fill-level of the silo has gone up the access door on the silo side wall, the observation lid on the roof allows access into the silo.
In all MAFAL silos, there are inner stairways to enter the silo, a safety cage external stairway to access silo observation lid on the outer surface of the silo, and a platform to rest. And there are double-railing and safety roof stairways on the roofs to be able to reach the top point of the silos starting from the eaves.
MAFAL silo roofs are among the strongest silo roofs worldwide. MAFAL silo roofs are designed to resist the loads from upper roof conveyance equipment, snow loads, wind loads and the weight of temperature cables. The slope of the 30 degree silo roofs ensures an optimum fill level for the silos. To reinforce the strength and endurance of the upper roofs of wide grain silos, they are designed as cages using special cross-section profiles. The strength of the silo roof is maximized thanks to this architecture.
