Kopar supplies equipment and complete systems for storing bulk materials ranging from small solutions to large and complex processes. These systems are available in open or closed configurations. Normally the systems are closed/covered to prevent moisture from entering the material during the storage period.

The goal of any storage system is not only to provide an inventory buffer for continuous production but also to blend different types of materials. That is why the storage volume needs to be large enough to allow blending and homogenization.

As the key element of a storage system, we manufacture silos which volumes range up to thousands of cubic meters. Silos can be fabricated of structural steel, stainless steel, acid-proof steel or aluminum. Our product range also includes pressurized and unpressurized tanks. Regarding storage systems Kopar offer:

  • A wide range of proven solutions
  • Homogeneous flow of biomass to operation or to discharge 
  • First-in, first-out discharge method
  • Rugged construction
  • Suitable for extreme rain/snow conditions
  • Environmentally friendly and dust-free construction

Kopar silos are manufactured of steel grades based on the customer requirements. Typically the used grades are aimed for heavy-duty use and to withstand abrasive conditions. 

Silos can be erected on feet-type supports, or they can be of bottom-room type, or they are round or square or conical. Further types are silos with V or flat bottomed.

accessories

Silos are usually equipped with smalll bag filters on top.

Often insulation and heating are also needed. A silo must be equipped with rails and service decks for easy maintenance. Further accessories are various types of valves, piping, sensors, cables and all instrumentation and discharging and unloading systems.

Ashes efficiently removed

The final stage of handling ashes or other bulk materials accumulated at process plants includes the storing in silos and the unloading of the material. 

In most cases the unloading takes place from a silo to a  truck that is driven under the silo.

Kopar has delivered hundreds of unloading stations to power plants, chemical operations and other process industry installations to efficiently removed the material in wet or dry mode depending on the need and application.
