Direct Engineering’s Expertise in Bulk Storage Silo Manufacturing

Direct Engineering specializes in the fabrication and installation of industrial bulk storage silos with a capacity of up to 100 tonnes, reaching 20 metres in height and 4.5 metres in diameter.

Our manufacturing facility in Chesterfield is well-equipped to produce silos using various materials such as Aluminium, Stainless Steel, and Mild Steel. These silos serve a wide range of industries across the UK and Europe, including:

  • Food Storage
  • Agriculture
  • Plastics
  • Chemical

Preferred Choice: Aluminium Silos

Aluminium silos are the preferred choice for most of our customers due to several advantages:

  • Lightweight construction
  • Oxide layer that prevents contamination
  • Strength and durability

Additional Features

Our silos can be equipped with load cells to monitor the weight of the contents inside. Upon customer request, silos can be double-skinned with lagging and cladding to prevent condensation and protect the stored product.
