Lipp silo making machine
The technology of silo storage for coal is often used in power plants and coal mines. Concrete silos and steel silos are both usually used as coal storage silos. A concrete silo requires a long construction period and high investment, but a steel silo can be quickly built with less budgets. As the latest type of steel silo, Lipp Silo Machine has been widely used in coal storage, grain and oil storage, brewing, building materials, environmental protection, chemical industry, energy and other industries.
Lipp Silo is invented by a German engineer named Xaver Lipp. This silo technology was introduced to China in 1960s, and starts its application in the field of coal storage in 1980s. Now it has been widely used in coal mines, cement plant, grinding station, hydropower station, thermal power station, and cement transfer depot.
- Good integrity and long service life. Special equipment was used in the whole process of Lipp silo construction, this greatly strengthened the carrying capacity of the silo body, and granted the silo high integral strength, good stability and excellent seismic performance.
- High sealing effect, prevent rain and leakage. Due to the five layer undercut technology, Lipp Silo has an outstanding sealing effect. It can prevent cement, fly ash and other materials from caking and hardening.
- Short construction period, low cost. By using field construction, Lipp equipment can provide a shaping speed of 3-5m per minute, which shortens the construction period. A 15m tall coal silo could be constructed in 8-10 days. Cost-effective can be achieved for light sheets are used for the whole silo, which also makes the lipp silos much lighter than concrete silos.
- Covers small area, easy to manage. Lipp Silo`s height and diameter can be arbitrarily adjusted within a large range. Comparably small coverage that could narrow the separation distance between two silos down to 500mm for maximized space utilization.
