A major revamp of a large silo store with one of those customers who have come back to us time and again.
Part of this has been to relook at the loading of lorries and the need to reach over the intake pit and the wet grain holding area alongside. The previous lorry loading spout meant lorries standing right in the middle of the wet grain holding area which was a problem when loading out barley with wheat coming in.
Utilising the frames that supported the previous loading spout and additional support frame a Perry conveyor with two loading spouts was installed, the conveyor being 11m above the intake pit allowing lorries to tip too. To enable the conveyor to span the supports and to maintain the clearance height Perry designed special span bracing.
