Proposal to use a Vitkovice type haylage tower silo for the storage of grain with forced ventilation



Proposal to use a Vitkovice type haylage tower silo for the storage of grain with forced ventilation



Sbornik Mechanizacni Fakulty, Vysoka Skola Zemedelska v Praze (1): 9-20



The haylage silo needs to be modified by fitting a 0.65 X 0.75 m hatch in the first free row near the bottom and constructing a concrete hopper-shaped bottom in the silo (optimum angle 40 deg ) with grooves to accommodate the air ducts distributing the air, which are covered by louvres made of 2 mm gauge sheet metal with 1.5 mm slots. Provision is also made for a 3.8 m long, 260 mm inside diam. auger for unloading.
