We offer Turn-Key solutions for all your bulk storage needs and specialised design for any unusual materials. At LGPM several types of Mighty Bulk Silos are available, Flat Bottom, Hopper Bottom and Farm Silos. Each is designed individually to meet the requirements of the customer and to comply with Australian standards, engineered to match local Wind, Seismic and Atmospheric conditions in the build area.

 

All silos are constructed with the following:

 

  • S350GD Structural steel, this includes all body sheets and side wall stiffeners.
  • Catwalks and supports are manufactured from S280GD.
  • All raw materials are galvanised, using Z600 g/m2, ensuring the longest service life, which is up to 37% higher than other silo manufacturers.
  • Farm silos range from 1.8m up to 3.8m in diameter and have capacities up to 85m3. They also come with hopper angle options of 45°,60°,67°, depending on material stored.
  • Hopper Bottom Silos range from 3m up to 12.23m in diameter and have capacities up to 2,600m3. They also come with hopper angle options of 45°,60°,66°, depending on material stored.
  • Flat Bottom silos range from 4.6m up to 32.08m in diameter, and have capacities up to 25,000m3
