SILOS


WHAT IS A SILO?

IMCS Silos provide an efficient method of storing bulk quantities of material including plastics, powders, and a variety of dry materials for process. Not only does bulk storage insure that the materials needed to keep an operation running are always there, it also provides a way to buy raw material at less cost. Minimizing waste, contamination, and freeing up valuable floor space are additional advantages of the IMCS bulk storage system. IMCS Silos are constructed from an FDA approved galvanized metal which provides a maintenance free surface. The silos are sealed with FDA approved crosslinked polyethlene foam sealant to prevent water infiltration. Various capacities, methods of fill and discharge are available. Accessories and safety equipment to OSHA specifications, are available to meet customer needs.

SILO FOUNDATION SPECIFICATIONS




Anchor Bolt Detail

Every IMCS silo that we install is mounted to the concrete pad foundation by the Tru-Bolt anchoring system. This eliminates the need for setting bolts in wet concrete before the silo is erected. The Tru-Bolt anchor allows you to erect the silo, position it, and then drill the anchor holes and secure the anchors. With this method, the anchors are always properly located. The Tru-Bolt anchor has a 7800 lb. pull-out strength, exceeding the strength of an ordinary mounting bolt.


Foundation Specifications

Foundations must be appropriately designed for local soil and frost depth conditions. Sizes given are adequate to resist 1.5 times the over- turn force of a 30 psf wind load acting on .6 times the surface area of the silo. The foundation should be placed on soil with a bearing capacity of 3500 psf, or special modification of the foundation must be considered.

Concrete in the footings should have a minimum compression strength of 3,000 psi at 28 days. Reinforcing steel should have a minimum yield strength of 33,000 psi.
