Silo Setter Trailer
Towed by a fifth-wheel hitch, you can conveniently transport the Wilco™ silo setter trailer between field sites without using a separate trailer. This trailer is used to help meet the need to reduce the footprint of equipment on job sites. A single silo setter trailer can be used to transport and deploy multiple lay-down/stand-up (LDSU) silos, reducing the cost and square footage required to maintain a fleet of field bin storage trailers. It can be used in conjunction with several different sizes and models of our LDSU silo product line and other LDSU silo makes.
Silo Setter Truck
Wilco silo setter trucks are designed for the deployment of field lay-down/stand-up (LDSU) silos. Our design can be assembled to most standard makes and models of truck chassis.
Lay-Down/Stand-Up ASME Code Silos
Our lay-down/stand-up silos come complete with one 5-in. victaulic nipple with a butterfly valve and union attached for inlet; one 5-in. victaulic nipple with a butterfly valve and union attached for vent; one 5-in. victaulic nipple for discharge with a butterfly valve and union attached; one 2-in., 3,000-lb coupling with pressure relief in the vent line; one 20-in. hinged manway in shell with an access ladder; one 1.5-in., 3,000-lb coupling in the top head with the gauge line viewable from ground level; and an aeration system with inlet manifold. The aeration system includes four aeration cartridges and four aeration jets in cone. The aeration manifold comprises 3-in. pipe with a 2-in. inlet with union, butterfly valves for air control, and required check valves. A skid base with appropriate support saddles will be installed under the full length of the tank and at the tank base.
