DSS001 - centering frame for flexible silos

Centering frame for flexible silo

This centering frame ensures that the operator places the silo on the correct spot in production, by simply putting it between the 2 corners (see picture).

Flexible silos: use

When it comes to bottle storage, intelligent tumble pack solutions can reduce the workload heavily for environments where there is not much transport involved. Averagely, you can store 30 % fewer products per cubic meter, but in these environments, this will not be in relation to the workload, packaging material and/or investment needed.
Such flexible silo systems are often used for:

  • In-house productions, blowing and filling bottles in the same building.
  • Nearby sites, blowing bottles and the customer is nearby.
  • Internal storage solution for offline labelling, instead of online labelling. You can achieve a higher line efficiency by disconnecting the labelling machine from the bottle production machines. As a result, it will avoid stoppages of the blow molder due to the label rolls being empty. Also, it will avoid bubble forming in EBM due to the cooling of the bottles.

In conclusion, flexible silos are the ideal solution for non-food in-house productions, or nearby plastic bottle manufacturing sites!
With this DSS001 centering frame, you can place the silos correctly in production.

Machines for flexible silos

Moreover, apart from the centering frame, we also have a range of machines for loading (blow moulding department) and unloading silos (filling department).
We have two types of unloading:

  • Base unloading: into unloading station DSS050: for silos with base outlet DFS150.
  • Top unloading: the unloader DEP100 tips the silo into an unscrambler bin: for silos with top outlet DFS010 or DFS100.



This centering frame is suitable for the following flexible silos:

  • Flexible silo – half height – top outlet: DFS010,
  • Flexible silo – full height – top outlet: DFS100,
  • And the flexible silo – full height – base outlet: DFS150
