Description:

Ben and Gaws legal explains that first and foremost expense is not installation of the silo but construction of a properly engineered concrete pad alongside a grain delivery system. The most important thing to keep in mind is appropriate sizing, therefore the silo should have a storage capacity based on expansion plan. Ben & gaws legal further explains that the extra space is to accommodate the 30 degree inverse cone which gets formed when the malt is blown into the silo. The extra headspace is required in a situation where you need to accommodate for some remaining material while filling. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Ben Gaws Legal- When should you use silos for
breweries?

Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, many breweries of
different capacities small to medium, are
planning for expansion. Since these breweries are
successful and continue to produce and sell
alcohol from their existing facilities, they are
planning for expansion. Expansion typically
involves adding a silo along with other
equipment. Adding a silo to expand the production
does have positive impacts on the consumer base
and revenue. Ben Gaws is one of the leading
manufacturers of storage silos in the country and
they will explain how silos ease the process of
receiving malt and improves efficiency of brewery
operations with proper grain delivery/milling
systems. The biggest reason to install a silo,
without an iota of doubt, is the cost savings
associated with it. On an average it is expected
that after installing a silo youll end up saving
around 25-40 on base malt. Ben gaws legal
express that everyone would love to have an
inflated bottom line.

Ben and Gaws legal explains that first and
foremost expense is not installation of the silo
but construction of a properly engineered
concrete pad alongside a grain delivery system.
The most important thing to keep in mind is
appropriate sizing, therefore the silo should
have a storage capacity based on expansion plan.
Ben gaws legal further explains that the
extra space is to accommodate the 30 degree
inverse cone which gets formed when the malt is
blown into the silo. The extra headspace is
required in a situation where you need to
accommodate for some remaining material while
filling. Another important thing that usually
gets overlooked is properly measuring the density
of the grain that will be stored. For example,
920 cubic feet of bin capacity is required for 25
metric tonnes of raw wheat at 69 cubic foot, and
similarly 25 metric tons of barley malt at 34
Cubic Foot requires 1,670 cubic feet of bin
capacity. However, there have been instances
where brewers have bought silos with 21 metric
ton as capacity, and as a result have ended up
with bins that are too small.

There is also a certain amount of maintenance
associated with grain silo. One should have the
equipment ready for removing grain, dust and
chaff, prior the grain hits the grain delivery
system. When it comes to silo, the volume
justifies it all. The thumb rule is that you
should be able to accommodate a minimum of 7-8
truckloads annually to justify a silo. So if you
dont have the volume or cannot accommodate it,
do not set up a silo because filling a silo
usually costs between 15,000-18,000. This could
especially be taxing if you do not have the
operational capacity to cover the cost.

Ben and Gaws legal can assist you if youre
thinking of adding a silo or a tank to enhance
your production. While a lot has been discussed
here, theres more. Ben and Gaw can assist you
with bulk transfer systems, efficient material
handling and delivering systems etc. Every
brewery is different and solutions for them are
also different. What works for you, might not
work for another. Its the matter of finding the
right silo and the right solution for you.
