Advantages overview
  • Save time and personnel with fully automated filling and transfer of bulk materials.
  • Sludge loading can be done autonomously by the disposer.
  • No vehicle overloading, due to load monitoring.
  • Low energy requirements and high loading and storage capacity.
  • Emission controls with a closed plant system.
  • Hygienic conditions are improved.
Silo sizes and dimensions are variable and adapted to each application. Storage and discharge of different bulk materials is possible.


  • Loading silos on steel constructions for direct load transfer from the silo into trucks.
  • Loading silos at ground level for loading with an additional conveyor system.


Variable fill level measurement, weighing scale, insulation and heating, explosion protection, ATEX conformity, exhaust air treatment, integrated lifting devices, variable or different stairway and platform systems.

Filling systems:

Chain conveyors, screw conveyors, or pump systems for filling the silos.

  • Hygienic and low-odour sewage sludge feeding

Discharge systems:

Discharge systems, electrohydraulically driven single or multiple sliding frames with discharge screw conveyors and gate valves, screw conveyors, rotation systems.

  • no bridging within the silo
  • discharge capacity is variable
