stec silos store mix for four days* without loss of mix quality. That's true storage. And we guarantee it in writing.
Use the silos as a conventional surge bin during the busy time of day. At day's end avoid time-consuming start/stop operations and begin filling silos while continuing loadout. The next work-day, begin selling mix right away from full silos. Nobody has to wait for mix. Uninterrupted production runs allow you to maximize equipment efficiency and reduce material waste. Incorporate multiple silos in your plant layout and you will be ready to meet customer needs for a number of different mixes. That's how Astec storage silos reduce operating costs and improve plant operating-efficiency.
