  • Determine the volume and weight storage requirements.
  • Understand choices of different wall materials and constructions.
  • Specify accessories that will be needed, including fire protection requirements and explosion protection.
  • Understand the concept of "aspect ratio" of a silo.
  • Understand the need for "mass flow" from a silo.
  • Understand the difference between screw reclaim and passive reclaim.
  • Estimate the working volume, height and diameter of a silo for a proposed application.
