FLEXXOCOVER

Silo cover | Gas-open execution

Protect the silo against odour, CO2 emissions and weather with a silo roof or a silo cover from Flexxolutions. This cover can be mounted on almost any concrete or steel silo available on the market. The Flexxocover is available as a gas-open version with welded straps, a separate strap construction for frequent opening and closing or a version in which the roof is stretched by extending the middle column. There are also various versions available in a gas-tight execution, depending on your application. The Flexxocover silo cover is designed to ensure a maximum lifespan in all kinds of circumstances and is therefore extremely durable for our customers. We realise this by choosing the best materials, by using tested components and by certified production and assembly.

why de flexxocover and not a regular silo cover?

  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. The Flexxocover has been successfully assembled on more than 1000 tanks and has been placed without defects in diameters between ø2 and ø54 meters. This broad experience ensures that we can realise the best silo roof for you.
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. In hundreds of positions, we apply reinforcements to protect sensitive areas from wear and tear. The combined effect of these reinforcements ensures that the silo roof can last much longer. Would you like to see what such a reinforcement looks like? Then click here!
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. All our metal parts that might be in contact with gas are always made of stainless steel-316 because of the minimum sensitivity to corrosion (rust).
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. The slope of the silo cover is optimised on a project-by-project basis for snow load, wind forces and pressure and resulting forces on the silo wall. This significantly increases the lifespan of your silo roof!
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. We manage the entire process from design and production to assembly ourselves (under KIWA K73883 and ISO-9001). This allows us to deliver maximum quality to you.
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. For each silo roof you will receive an extensive report in which all strength calculations, conditions and the resulting force on the silo wall are described. By checking this with the builder, we can prevent unforeseen problems, so that a maximum lifespan can be achieved.
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. The foil that is used in our products is extremely stable in shape, it has a breaking strength of 8,000 kg per linear metre produced by a West European supplier.
  • ArtboardCreated with Sketch. Our foil suppliers give a five year guarantee on the material and we give a five year guarantee on the design and processing.

  • The gastight cover can be executed with a gas seal on the inside or on top of the silo wall. If mounted on top of the wall, it is still possible to open the silo during stops when the system is in operation.
  • For steel or stainless silo's, tensioning is often carried out by extending the centre column. This ensures an even and uniform tensioned roof.
