Custom made, independent brewer grain silos

Brewer grain silos in fact play a subordinate yet significant role in the production beer: they are given the function of holding the depleted malt residues (“brewer grains”).
The production processes of the drinks industry are constantly placing new demands on the construction of containers and it is precisely in the understanding of brewer grain silos that the highest level of flexibility is needed in order to do justice to the specific flows and needs of the breweries. GROSS designs customized, independent brewer grain silos: equipment, which is sold either as a supporting structure or with frame stands.
Generally speaking a brewer grain silo is an upright, closed container. The silo has vertical ladder, a round railing and a ventilation grille. The cross section is sometimes round and sometimes square. Installation with a ball trap is an option if ball type pipe cleaning equipment is being used. The ball is removed outside of the silo.

The storage capacity of a silo system must lie at multiple day loads to be able to be fully functional on weekends or on holidays as well since the production runs round the clock in brewery. The brewer grain is separated out using special dispensing devices (pumps, metering screws) and further use is made of it as a nutrient-rich animal feed for cows, cattle and pigs. Due to the moist consistency of the brewer grain the equipment should be winterized to prevent freezing.

Heated brewer grain silo

In order to prevent the tank from freezing in winter this brewer grain silo was, at the request of the customer, equipped with insulation and heating.
