The bulk cement storage tanks are mainly used for storing and measuring the cement. Powder materials such as cement or coal ash are pumped into the tank through bulk tank trucks. Heavy materials such as sand are often lifted into the tank through bucket elevators. When in use, the materials in the tank are input into the metering and batching system through the screw conveyor at the bottom.
A cement silo is usually equipped with high and low material level displays, alarm devices, flow aids, etc., and is connected to the central control system for real-time display and automated operation.

The traditional vertical cement tank is a cylindrical and conical type. Compared with the new mobile cement silo, there are many differences. The horizontal cement silo has the advantages of no foundation, low height and easy maintenance. It also has the disadvantages of high cost and large floor space. Vertical cement silos occupy a small area and are low in cost. The biggest disadvantage is the height problem. Due to the high height of vertical cement silo, basic work must be done well, and measures such as windproof, rainproof, lightning protection, and electricity protection must be taken, which is especially inconvenient for equipment repair and maintenance.
