What is a concrete stave silo?
The cement stave silo was introduced around 1910. It is made up of masonry units that hook together with interlocking edges with mortar applied between the joints. The staves are reinforced by either flat or round metal bands. The inside of the silo was sealed with a thin layer of concrete.
How do you knock down a silo?
“There are several ways to bring down silos, including dynamite and pulling them over using a tractor and long cable after some of the bottom staves have been knocked out,” says Vomhof, who specializes in rebuilding, extending, and plastering silos.
How are concrete silos made?
Concrete stave silos consist of interlocking concrete staves compressed by exterior steel hoops. The staves are similar to a concrete block, while the hoops provide the primary structural integrity of the silo wall. The staves of the silo are typically 10″ wide and 30″ tall, with a thickness of 2″ to 5 ¾”.
In most silos, gravity causes grain to flow from the top of the silo and out through an opening at the bottom near the center. As grain flows through the auger, it forms a funnel shape at the top of the silo. If workers stand at that location, flowing grain can pull them into the mix, causing injury or loss of life.
Can you die in a silo?
Individuals can suffocate to death in a grain bin or silo when engulfed in grain while working or playing. The most common grain injuries and death occur by entrapment of sorghum, cottonseed, livestock feed and yellow corn. Usually, the worker becomes entrapped when loosening frozen or spoiled grain.
