For all your building materials needs, Cookson & Zinn design and manufacture a range of silos and storage vessels.
Cookson & Zinn design and manufacture silos for the storage of a wide range of materials including cement, lime, barite, bentonite and bitumen.
Pressure Silos differ from Gravity Silos in that the material is aerated and pressurised to transfer it into the silos but is also aerated and pressurised to transfer it out of the silo. This method is ideal when transferring materials between silos, creating blends of different base materials or loading into storage bunkers.
All of our pressure silos are designed and manufactured with our innovative pressure equalisation system that prevents dead spots and the build up of material in the outlet neck of the silo. This innovation saves time, removes the manual handling hazards associated with dismantling the neck and respiratory and demagogical hazards of handling fine powders.
Gravity Silos are vented to atmospheric pressure and use a combination of gravity and fluidising pads in the bottom cone to feed material to the outlet.
The outlet will normally have a valve system metering material into a low pressure blowing system or will empty into a feed screw.
