Silo production has a long tradition at Zeppelin. The company welded tanks from aluminum already in the days of airship construction in the early 20th century.
Our product range is geared towards the global demand for storage silosalong our customers’ supply chain. We ensure the economical, reliable and gentle storage of high-quality bulk materials with our stainless steel or aluminum storage silos.
The innovations, such as the development of emboxable silos in the 70ies and the technology for easy on-site assembly of silos – even those larger than 500 m³ – enabled Zeppelin silo technology to grow consistently.
With our storage silos made of aluminum or stainless steel, we ensure cost-efficient, dependable and gentle storage of your high-quality bulk materials.
Zeppelin Rotary Feeders transport the customers’ bulk material from containers and silos into the pneumatic conveying system. Particular attention is paid to detail so that everything runs smoothly. This is why we provide our customers with the optimal rotary feeder for every task—whether for powders or pellets. High degree of filing, ideal sizes, friendly product handling, innovative sealing systems, minimal leakage-perfection you can rely on
Zeppelin diverter valves have been developed to guarantee reliable operation in the future as well. The patented design of the inlet, the outlet and the rotary plug channel ensures gentle transport of materials without any deposits. The active conveying direction is pressure-tight to avoid leakage or product impurities. Inflatable seals enable washing of pipes.
Optimized design for best results
The innovative wing profile tool with its unprecedented lifting abilities makes the bottom shell radius and a deflection via that radius unnecessary. The tool is no longer near-ground and the special airfoil shape generates a suction effect that directs the material upwards. The combination of the flat mixing head with the wing profile tool provides high lifting forces, minimal turbulence and low mixing resistance. This ensures a fast and effective homogenization and a very good color strength.
Thanks to the high bottom clearance, no pressure is generated on the surface of the mixing head and any material deposits or build-ups are eliminated. This results in hardly any temperature increase (approx. 1.5 - 2 °C/ min), a low power consumption and less wear on the mixing tool.
