BSI silo containers

The Silo IBC is a hopper style container with a funnel outlet designed for liquids and paste-like materials.

The tank is made of 100 % stainless steel, and the funnelled outlet has a 30° / 45° slope angle for the smooth flow of products and easy cleaning.

The design includes a stackable frame which can be manufactured using either galvanised or stainless steel depending on the application and customer requirements.

Seals are specified by the customer and outlet design is the characterising feature of this IBC. The container is especially suited to paste-like filling materials with densities of up to 1.83 kg/l and is available in volumes of 500 to 1000 litres.

Whether for production, transport or storage, the Silo container provides flexibility within the materials handling supply chain.
