Some uses & advantages of polyethylene silo tanks

Silo tanks, sometimes known as conical tanks, have a number of industrial, agricultural and other applications. Silo tanks differ from normal water tanks in that they have a cone-shaped base for funnelling the contents downwards, using gravity.

Polyethylene silo tanks can be used for storing:

  • Grains and cereal crops
  • Silage
  • Animal feeds
  • Food ingredients at processing factories
  • Liquid foods
  • Various chemicals (ensure chemical-duty tanks are used)

Advantages of poly or plastic silo tanks:

  • Lightweight, easy to transport, manoeuvre and install

  • Very cost-effective compared to stainless steel silo tanks
  • Silo tank stands can be made less bulky compared to steel silo tanks that require heavily constructed stands to support the extra weight
  • Poly silo tanks are available in different colours – important for some industrial/processing applications

Polyethylene silo tanks can be used instead of stainless steel silo tanks for most applications excepting where high temperatures are involved. Most plastic silo tanks should not be used if the temperature of the stored contents is sustained at above 40 degrees Celsius. If high temperature resistance is a requirement, then stainless steel silo tanks should be chosen. JoJo silo tanks are resistant to most chemicals; if unsure, check with JoJo Tanks first.
