Storing grain in steel silos has recently become one of the more popular methods of grain storage as it stores grain for a long period (as warehouses do) but at much lower price.
Silo Section has a unique profile, which is designed to replace RHS in silo base ring sections and support legs. Orrcon Steel specialises in producing quality Silo Sections that comply with AS/NZS 1163 - C350L0.
Silo Section is designed for silo ring beams, which aid the transition between the silo wall and discharge hopper. This is a critical structural element of the Silo design, where the inclined surface of Silo Section follows the hopper angle while the other three surfaces remain horizontal or vertical. The Silo Section allows for easy joining of the silo wall to the hopper plate.
In addition to its function as a silo ring beam, Silo Section can also be used as an economical alternative for silo support legs. There are various other applications that can use this type of steel cross-section.

At Orrcon steel we understand the unique features of steel silos, and can assist your business with steel requirements in this niche. Steel silos are easier to erect, and it’s also easier to install accessories such as doors, ladders and samplers to steel silos. The structure of steel silos is also more flexible, so they are effective at surviving wild weather. Furthermore it is easier and more effective to do aeration in steel silos in comparison to tall concrete silos.
