Aggregates and ceramics
The AGGREGATE sector includes many types of materials such as:
Cement, sand, premixed mortars, atomized powder for the ceramic industries, raw materials again for the ceramic industry or similar.
These types of materials do not cause problems such as Atex (they are non-explosive substances) and/or the preservation of the product over time.
They generally present problems deriving from the important specific weight and abrasiveness.
All types of silos are used (both round and prismatic hoppered type but with SMOOTH walls) in very different sizes ranging from small silos for users to large silos in manufacturing industries. For example, in the cement sector large silos are used in port terminals for unloading ships (since production has been brought to developing countries given the large energy consumption).
