At HE Silos, we know that there are certain needs and expectations that are simply a matter of course when purchasing a silo. It is for this reason that HE Silos include a range of features free of charge with every silo order. The features listed below ensure a safer, user friendly product that our customers have come enjoy. With every transportable silo, you can expect standard features including:
- Ladders and Cages (all our ladders and cages conform to WorkCover specifications). Our ladder and cage systems were designed in close consultation with WorkCover and Australian Standard AS1657. This gives domestic and commercial operators the peace of mind required when working at heights. The use of safety harnesses is also vital when utilising the ladder system.
- Remote opening lid. Our remote opening lids operate on industrial strength springs, ensuring a perfect seal. 4 tensioning springs are also used on the outside of the lid for long term storage and added protection against hazardous weather.
- One sight glass. Additional sight glasses available at $60 each.
For the progressive farmer or commercial operator, aeration is an absolute must when ensuring grain quality over any given storage period. When grain goes into a silo, it isn’t always below the recommended moisture level and even when it is, grain must be systematically dried or kept dry during storage. HE Silos has the range of aeration required to keep your grain cool and dry. HE Silos exclusively use Agridry aeration systems in our silos. Agridry are renowned for their aeration products which we have been using across all our silos since their establishment in 1976. HE Silos are proud of our partnership with Agridry and their aeration products strongly represent the quality and service we expect from our own product. Our transportable silos utilise single/three phase AER50 and AER100 fan units to ensure effective grain drying and cooling.
HE Silos offers fan forced (recirculation) fumigation systems or a more affordable thermal fumigation alternative. With the increasing resistance of Weevils to phosphine treatment in unsealed silos, the importance of a 100% kill rate for farmers who on-sell their grain is paramount to their suc-cess in the modern market. Because of this fact alone, HE Silos has de-signed a product that will ensure your grain remains insect free. Fan Forced Fumigation Systems Fan forced fumigation offerings appeal to the commercial operator who must be 100% certain that all Weevils have been killed. Recirculation of phosphine gas within the silo ensures a 100% kill rate and gives you peace of mind knowing your grain is parasite free. Thermal Fumigation Systems Thermal fumigation (seen bottom right), works on the principle of heat. Sunlight heats the black polyurethane pipe, causing the phosphine gas to rise. Because phosphine gas is heavier than oxygen, the gas then falls through the grain and the cycle continues.
