How to Choose The Volume of Bulk Cement Storage Tanks

Jan 05, 2023

The bulk cement storage tank is mainly used for storage and metering. Powder materials such as cement or coal ash are pumped into the tank by bulk tank trucks, and heavy materials such as sand are often lifted into the tank by bucket elevators. When in use, the material in the tank is fed into the metering and batching system through the screw conveyor at the bottom.

The cement silo for sale is usually equipped with high and low material level display, alarm device, flow aid device, etc., and is connected to the central control system for real-time display and automatic operation. We usually select the cement tank specifications according to "how many tons of cement it can hold" or "how big is the total volume of the cement tank".

We first determine the weight of 1 cubic meter of cement based on the bulk density of cement. The bulk density of cement refers to the weight per unit volume of cement in its natural state (including voids), expressed in tons/cubic.

The bulk density of cement can be divided into two types: bulk density in loose state and bulk density in compact state. The bulk density of cement in the loose state is generally in the range of 0.9~1.3 tons/cubic; the bulk density of cement in the compact state is generally in the range of 1.35~1.7 tons/cubic. Usually, the volume of the cement tank should be calculated with a bulk density of 1.35.

The common capacity of bulk cement silo is 30 tons, 50 tons, 65 tons, 80 tons, 100 tons, 150 tons, and 200 tons. 50 ton cement silo is a popular one. 150-200 tons cement silos are large vertical bulk cement storage tanks, commonly In large commercial concrete mixing plants such as HZS120 and HZS180 concrete mixing plants.

The concrete mixing plant is a modular assembled mechanical equipment. The capacity of the cement silo ranges from 50-500T. Choosing a high-quality cement silo is very important for the progress and quality of the entire project. Welcome to leave message below to tell us your specific requirements.
