Cement silo is a simple piece of equipment used to store bulk materials like cement and fly ash. It is commonly found in concrete plants and used in conjunction with a screw conveyor to deliver cement to the desired location. Based on the specifications of your concrete batching plant, we provide a suitable cement storage silo for your project.
Different Types of Cement Silo for Sale
- Welded type silo
Welded type is suitable for small concrete plants. It is transported as a whole, so the capacity cannot be very large, typically 50 tons.
- Bolted cement silo
Bolted type is recommend for medium and large concrete batch plants since it is convenient for transportation. The cement silo capacity can be 50T, 100T, 150T, 200T and more.
The silo can be dismantled into many parts when transporting, and be installed with bolts at site.
- Horizontal cement silo
The equipment comes in various styles, including frame type, container type, stackable container type and wheel type. The silo can be custom designed and built to your requirements.
Cement Silo for Concrete Batching Plant
In general, 50 ton and 100 ton silos are found in batching plants with capacity below 50m³/h such as AJ-25, AJ-35 and AJ-50. The larger concrete plants like AJ-60, AJ-75, AJ-90, AJ-120, AJ-180 and AJ-240 are equipped with silos of 100T, 200T or larger.
The silo has a small opening with the rounded edge, which is connected to the round mouth of the screw conveyor. Cement silos equipped for batch plants can be very flexible, which are designed according to the needs of customers.

Cement Silo Parts
The function of the dust collector is to filter the gas discharged from the silo, and at the same time make the pressure inside and outside the silo reach a balance.
Some dust collectors are equipped with a vibration device (electric dust removal), which will shake off the collected dust at regular intervals. The dust collectors that are not equipped with such devices need to be checked regularly.
Guardrail is generally welded by a round tube. It allows the inspection and maintenance personnel to maintain the equipment safely and easily.
There are ladders insider and outside the silo for the convenience of maintenance.
- Level indicator
The function of level indication is to measure the height of the powder in the silo. The common type we use is a blade type level indicator.
Generally, one or two level indicators can be installed in a silo:
One on top: to measure is the bin is full
One at the bottom: to measure whether there is material in the silo and prevent empty positions.
- Feeding tube
The lower end of the feeding tube is connected to the cement pump truck, and the upper end is directly connected to the top of the silo.
- Pressure safety valve/broken arch
The function of broken arch is to prevent blockage in the silo. Generally 50 ton cement silo is equipped with 3 broken arches, and silos above 50T are equipped with 6 broken arches.
- Manual butterfly valve
The manual butterfly valve is the connection between the silo and the screw conveyor. In normal operation, the manual butterfly valve is opened so that the powder can enter into the screw conveyor. When you need to inspect the screw conveyor, the manual butterfly valve needs to be closed.
Holder is the part connected to the foundation. The height is variable and can be changed according to your specific requirements.
