EB Equipment has been manufacturing silos and tanks for over 60 years. We originally manufactured all of our silos using steel, until pioneering the production of GRP silos in the UK.
After a decade of manufacturing both steel and fibreglass product lines, we decided to discontinue the production of steel silos, as they had a limited capacity range and a limited market place.
Fibreglass or Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) as it is also known, offers many advantages when compared to steel for the manufacture of bulk storage silos and tanks, including:
SUPERIOR FLOW CHARACTERISTICS
Steel silos are made up of many sections, joined together using thousands of rivets. The rivets protruding inside the structure creating flow restrictions and build-up of product, also potential leaks.
EB Equipment GRP silos and tanks are manufactured in a single piece, eliminating joints and bolted sections with a glass smooth interior. Providing superior flow characteristics and the elimination of potential leaks.
SUPERIOR THERMAL INSULATION
GRP is considered non-conductive meaning it is less sensitive to condensation, which is commonplace with steel construction.
Moisture can cause many issues for the storage of dry products, including blockages and product break down which can lead to corrosion.
WIDE RANGE OF PRODUCT STORAGE
Our fibreglass silos and tanks are designed to store a wide variety of materials, many of which couldn’t be stored in steel vessels (due to non-compatibility and legislation) including:
- Food products
- Industrial plastics
- Chemical compounds
- Industrial chemicals
We can also offer bespoke solutions with higher capacities to suit customer needs. Use the links below to view the standard range, or get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements.
