Storage Bins

UCC storage bins/silos are designed based on material and flow characteristics to eliminate rat-holing and arching, thus guaranteeing proper flow from the silo. These storage bins are designed to meet site-specific seismic, wind & storage capacity loads.

  • Flat bottom or truncated cone with fluidizer
    • Mass flow designs are also available
  • Welded steel, bolted steel, or concrete construction
  • Vent filters
  • Vacuum/pressure relief valves
  • Level detection equipment
  • Optional unloading equipment
  • Optional flow aid devices available to ensure smooth flow from the bin discharge
    • Fluidizing/aeration elements
    • Vibratory components
  • Supply & erect service available

  1. Question 1[+]
    Answer 1
NUVA FEEDER Dilute Phase Pressure System

The NUVA FEEDER® pressure system is optimal where conveying capacity requirements exceed the limits of a vacuum system. 

MultiDAC Dense Phase Pressure System

The MultiDAC™ system is intended primarily for short conveying distances.  Learn more about our MultiDAC Pressure System.


DEPAC Dense Phase Pressure System

DEPAC® is a dense phase system for conveying large quantity of material at low velocity over very long distances. 


Vacuum Systems

The NUVEYOR® Vacuum System is an industry standard for efficient, reliable ash removal and is capable of conveying up to 80 TPH and distances of 1500 ft (450m).

Vacuum-Pressure Transfer System

UCC's Vacuum/Pressure Transfer systems combine the simplicity and lower headroom requirements of a vacuum system under the hoppers with the high capacity and long distance conveying capability of a positive pressure system.
