Solutions for Sugar Silos

To prevent condensation and to keep quality

The quality of the stored product may be substantially affected by condensation. To prevent this and to keep the sugar in free-flowing condition, it is essential to heat the silo in order to maintain a constant temperature. An increasing number of refineries are turning to high-tech solutions with electrical heat tracing to achieve this.
A project that demonstrate eltherm’s engineering and production expertise for complex projects is the electrical heated jacket for a Pfeifer & Langen silo in Jülich, Germany. The silo has a capacity of 60 000 tons, and an overall height of nearly 80 meters. 

Nordzucker sugar silo in Nykøbing (Denmark)
Nordzucker in Nykøbing (Denmark) committed eltherm for the engineering, design, installation and commissioning of the complete electrical trace heating solution for a white
sugar silo. Heating requirements were calculated and the electrical heating system designed accordingly. All in all, the silo was completed as a turnkey project ready for operation, in the record time of just three weeks!

eltherm heats sugar silos in the Near East
eltherm engineers provided heating systems for two further sugar silos in the Middle East. The silos are almost 40 meters tall, with a diameter of 40 meters and a capacity
of 40 000 tons. An elaborate heating cable construction several kilometers long on the outside walls and specially adapted controls ensure the maintenance of a constant temperature, so that there is no condensation to affect the quality of the stored sugar.
