Why do you need Silo and Buffer Tanks?
Silo Tanks normally store the milk before processing
Silo tanks are used in both the Dairy & Food Industry, The Chemical Industry and for a variety of other purposes.
Because of their size, tanks are normally placed outside the dairy building.
Tanks are well insulated and can store a large quantity of milk, or other liquids.
Because of their weight, the tanks are standing on a skirt, instead of legs and can have a conical bottom, or a sloping bottom with outlet recess. Insulated with up to 120 mm Polyurethane or Rock-wool.
External cover can be made of Stainless steel or a Trapeze plate.
Buffer Tanks normally store the milk after processing
The inner height of the building is crucial for the form of a Buffer Tank — Vertical or Horizontal.
Both type of tanks is a “store” where milk can be kept for a while, so that one can organize the workflow most effectively. Sizes can range from 1.000 to 40.000 litres. Buffer tanks can be single, double or even triple jacketed with insulation and fully welded stainless steel cover
