Storage Silos

Reinforced concrete silos, with one or more cells, to store grains or raw materials for supplying various kinds of industries are of extreme importance for the logistic and productive processes, serving for the provisioning of products in general, both in the form of raw materials and finished products, such as wheat, which is used to manufacture flour, both being liable to storage.

The geometric shapes and height of the silos are quite varied and are defined by the kind of use and space available in the plant, with the most common being the circular shape, because it offers greater structural stability and uses less material during construction. The dimensions and technical characteristics directly influence ease of handling and conservation of the packed product quality.

CUNHA BRAGA has experience in planning and executing the several structure types, adapting them to the needs of each project by using innovative civil engineering concepts and solutions.
