Cyclone

Cyclone is a well-known and trusted name in Australian agriculture with a proven reputation spanning generations of farmers.

Cyclone's wide range of on-ground and elevated silos are manufactured in Australia and installed by experienced Agridealers in all states.

The combined strength of Cyclone and our partners means we can offer comprehensive advice, as well as the complete design and installation of silo-based grain storage systems for one or many silos.

These systems include storage, loading and unloading, weighbridges, and aeration along with monitoring and control systems.

Andrew Fisher, national sales manager for Cyclone Silos, is proud of his product range and manufacturing quality.

"Cyclone Silos will have a specific design for your requirements and region which considers grain load, terrain conditions, and wind load," Fisher said.

"Cyclone Silos also provide its customers with an independently certified silo specific design review statement and certified foundation construction drawings to provide peace of mind when it comes to the structural integrity of the build."

Cyclone's designs have come a long way since 1975. Our design team have not been resting on their laurels, making significant improvements in structural integrity and sealability such as, sealable access ports, ground opening lids, structural door frames, inner and outer access door seals, full ring structural eave plates and many more design updates.

These are all built around the silos' existing 25-year design life. Many of these updates make the silo seal more reliable when pressure testing to ensure it meets Australian Standard AS2628.

In addition to providing gas tight silos that meet AS2628, the Cyclone design offers a class leading one-in-200-year wind event design certification as standard with all silos.

Control

Maintaining stored grain quality relies on the ability to control moisture, temperature and insects. Good aeration and fumigation work together to keep these factors in check. An aeration system with a design matched to the silo delivers the air flow required to keep grain cool, dry and free from insect infestation. Should fumigation be required a gas tight silo is a must as phosphene based fumigants will only work effectively in a gas-tight silo.

The Cyclone design team have also been working to launching a completely reengineered aeration system this year, which has been built on the advice of the GRDC and research from the University of South Australia.

The system is manufactured in Australia to meet Australian conditions. Cyclone Silos' aeration system consists of matched fans, ducts, trenches and ventilators to both the silo (size and type) and the grain type. All while allowing the silo to be resealed should fumigation need to occur.

Options

There are over 180 design combinations in the Cyclone Silo product range. The Cyclone range delivers storage capacities from 40 to 5000 tonnes across all silos.

Elevated cone bottom silos are available in 47 degree cone angle to suit a wide range of grain types and in diameters of 12, 18, 24, and 30ft with storage capacities from 40 to 783 tonnes.

The options for on-ground storage extend from 24ft diameter 5.6m tall for 218 tonnes of wheat right up to 60ft diameter/20m tall for 4735 tonnes of wheat. Cyclone have the right silo for your project.

With another a huge season expected this year, our Cyclone Silos team have been busy. For this reason, Cyclone recommends that you plan and place an order now for next year's preseason builds.
