The most economical and safe way of storing cereals, other seeds, fertilizers and biomasses
The “silobag method“ was born in America where there are extensive crops, great distances and insufficient facilities to store large quantities produced.
Over the years, however, the silobag system it is also developed in Europe because of its modular elasticity to store small and large amounts of even different products. Finally, the possibility of using it for organic products and to ensure
a significant savings income compared with traditional storage makes it more and more interesting.
This system applied to grain storage derives from the need to solve logistical, technical and economical problems.
Logistical given that particularly during harvesting and straight afterwards, warehousing space is generally insufficient,
causing expensive product transfers and/or incorrect storage.
Tecnical given that storage conditions often have a negative effect on the quality of the product at the moment of usage. The main problems derive from infestation from insects and rodents, overheating and the development of moulds. Furthermore, new problems related to the need to keep different qualities of the same variety separate make silos particularly expensive and inadequate for storage. Last but not least, it is also necessary to conform to the ATEX regulations, which, where correctly applied, make silo storage problematic and expensive. This system, instead, requires no type of building concession or requirement.
Economical due to the excessive cost of silos, the necessity for periodic and expensive maintenance and running of movement systems, operating costs of ventilation, cooling and not least the costs of the much-discussed anti parasite treatments, both in the human and animal food chain. The silobag system applied to biomasses ensure the containment of operating costs combining it at the high quality preservation.
The Silobag system can also be applied to biomass, ensuring the containment of operating costs coupled with the high quality of preservation.
