Storage and Blending Silo VAID is a pioneer in supplying Silo Feeding, Storage and Extraction systems for Flat Bottom as well as Inverted Cone Silos. We offer complete equipment required for the silo system including open and closed air slides, manual and pneumatic cut-off-gates, flow control gates, parallel distributor, adapter boxes, piping, bin weighing/aeration systems, solid flow feeders/solid flow meters, belt weigh scales, control panels, etc.
Rotary Valves Rotary Valves are valves with a rotating chamber which is used to transfer a flow of fine solid material across two areas with different pressures and/or temperatures. These valves can perform extraction / feeding functions.
Pendular Valves Pendular Valves are single flap valves with slanted opening that are used to transfer a flow of solid material, in powder or lumps, across two areas with different pressures and/or temperatures.
Guillotine Slide Valves Guillotine valves are used to cut off the flow of generally fine grade solid material under a discharge point.
Slide Gates Slide gates are used to cut off the flow of solid material in lumps under a discharge point or hopper through a series of short bars or needles.
Helmet Rotary Gates Helmet rotary gates are valve gates that are used to cut off the flow of solid material, fine grade or in lumps, under a discharge point through a partially rotating curved flap.
Expansion Joint Elements that permit a sealed join between two transfer points for solid material that can move with respect to one another, for example differential thermal expansions.
Deviator Deviators are elements that are used to deviate the flow of solid materials from a feed point to two or more different discharge points.
