For the oil press plant in Moldova KMZ Industries has produced hoppers:
The silos will store granulated and non-granulated husks, as well as sunflower before drying.
In 2020, cooperation was continued by ordering 6 insulated hoppers 11 meters diameter and a storage capacity of 2,055 m³ each.
These hoppers are designed for such a difficult for storage product as granulated and non-granulated sunflower cake, therefore they have a unique design specially designed for the client. In particular, they have a completely flat and smooth panels – unlike standard hoppers made from corrugated steel, so the product does not slide along the panels and does not stick to them. In addition, magnetic pulse vibrators are installed on each hopper: due to their influence on the product flow, it is prevented from hanging.
And since two conveyors for loading are installed in parallel above the hoppers, the designers provided for them non-standard wide overpasses with passages for maintenance, which are also distinguished by a higher height of the supports to ensure an appropriate inclination of the gravity flows, which ensures the convergence of the product.
All hoppers manufactured for the oil press plant are designed for non-standard snow and wind loads in a seismically active zone. They are also equipped with dry pipes of the fire extinguishing system, provided with radar sensors for monitoring the level of grain for continuous monitoring of the level of the product in the tank online.
The assembling of the second batch of hoppers was carried out by specialists from the assembly division of KMZ Industries.
In addition to hoppers, the oil press plant has two flat bottom silos by Variant Agro Build model line.
