Among a number of recent contracts received, FRAME srl, one of Europe’s largest silo manufacturers, recently supplied 20 model FP 26/32 silos to its client TORNUM AB of Kvanum, Sweden for a project installed in Constanta Port, Romania. Providing total storage capacity of 200,000 tonnes of wheat, FRAME was asked to design and manufacture special 3,200-mm-wide catwalks, catwalk support towers and access platforms to accommodate the double 400-tph capacity chain conveyor arrangement loading the silos.

The silos were supplied to the latest Eurocode EN 1991-4 (2006) design standard. Other special design considerations taken into account was the 0.2g seismic acceleration, the 150 kgs/m2 snow load, a special overpressure facility for the roof and 30 fill/empty cycles per year. Galvanizing for the sidewall and roof sheets was 600 grams/m2.

Also included in the FRAME scope of supply were the aeration grids, the temperature indication system, powered roof vents and the supervision of the erection process.
