Flat bottom silos | KMZ Industries

Flat bottom silos

2 model ranges: Brice-Baker (developed in UK) and SMVU (developed by Ukrainian engineers)


We guarantee that the qualitative grain features of grain will be preserved for at least 12 months. The operational lifetime of silo’s metal construction is at least 15 years.

The guaranteed quality of the equipment manufactured by KMZ Industries is confirmed by our customers’ operational experience of over 15 years.


Silos are produced out of durable galvanized steel from European manufacturers SSAB, Voestalpine, Wuppermann. The steel grade is S350GD with zinc coating Zn 275, Zn 350, Zn 450, Zn 600 (according to the project’s requirements). Design loads comply with DIN, DSTU, DBN, and EUROCODE.

Range of silos

  • 88 models: storage capacity from 10 to 16.625 t, diameter from 2.7 to 32 m.
  • 2 model lines:  BBK (English design) and SMVU(А) (Ukrainian design).
  • 1 m diameter step of BBK silos.

The silos are manufactured using US-made BRADBURY automated production lines and Japanese AMADA processing machines at the production facility in Poltava Region.

Silos are equipped with efficient conditioning systems, which provide long-term consistent grain quality. The design features of the roof are instrumental in discharging condensate and improving aeration, as well as in preventing atmospheric precipitates and birds from getting into the silo. Used temperature control system – digital multipoint temperature transmitters with layer-by-layer temperature control enable information to be brought to a PC or gadget using specialized software.

The roof inspection hatch enables visual inspection of grain and, if necessary, grants access to the silo’s interior. Roof fans are installed on silos with diameter of 11 m or more to remove moisture under the roof. Double service doors are located on the first and second tiers of the silo.

The door on the second tier is equipped with internal and external ladders. Two doors enable convenient access inside to install the screw gear or to take samples. The doors of the 2nd tier have internal and external ladders for easy access of maintenance personnel to silo.

For operational safety and ease of use, silos are equipped with well-developed ergonomic roof ladders, vertical ladders for getting down from the overpass to the roof, external ladders with safeguard bows and landing platforms.
