Large storage capacity
The truck loading silo system mainly consists of eight round silos of the same size, arranged in two rows of four each. Each silo’s storage capacity is about 90 tons, consequently the Pfahnl mill’s storage rose up to a total of 720 tons, whereby the growing demands and requirements of flour and bakery ingredient specialists can be easily met.
Short loading time
The system achieves a high loading speed: Within just 5 minutes, 25 tons of flour can be loaded. This is possible due to an optimal silo discharge design and flour fluidization which is carried out by a fluidization bin discharger. This guarantees not only secure discharge but also a very high loading performance. Moreover, a pneumatic docking system ensures that the loading device docks tightly to the filling nozzle of the silo truck, in order to realize a completely dust-free loading.
Absolute loading autonomy
Another advantage is the loading autonomy: No special staff is required for loading the silo trucks, since this can be done by the driver himself/herself. This is enabled by a weighing system consisting of two bridge scales in a coupling design. The total length of 33 meters allows the silo truck to stand entirely on the scale when any load cell is filled. The intelligent controls system allows independent, order-related silo truck loading by the driver. The target weights are dosed through the silo discharge flap, using a variable-speed drive in coarse or fine flow.
