Steel Silo - Best Way for Paddy Rice Storage

Mar.15, 2023Keywords:Steel Silo, Paddy Silo, Paddy Rice Silo

Introduction of Paddy Rice
Paddy rice is the most important and oldest food in Oryza genus. It can be ground into white rice for human consumption, and can also be used to make wine, or made into rice flour, rice bran, radish cake and other foods. Paddy rice is the staple food of more than half of the world's population. Therefore, many food processing factories, grain reserves and breweries need to store a large amount of paddy rice for use. However, the storage of paddy rice needs to meet conditions such as dryness, low temperature, and airtightness, otherwise the paddy is easy to mold and deteriorate. How to store paddy rice safely has become a concern of many manufacturers.

Precautions for Paddy Rice Storage
In order to ensure the quality of paddy rice, the moisture of paddy rice should be controlled before storage, and the impurities in paddy should be removed. Ventilate and cool down in time after storing paddy rice into the silo to prevent condensation and insect damage.

Moisture Control:
Moisture in paddy rice is key to safe storage. After the paddy rice is harvested, the original moisture should be dried in time to reduce the moisture to less than 16%. High moisture content in paddy will reduce its quality and even cause mildew and insects.

Remove Impurities: The organic impurities contained in paddy rice have high water content, strong hygroscopicity, high bacteria load, high respiration intensity, chaff ash and other impurities that reduce the porosity of the grain pile, and the accumulation of damp heat in the pile is not easy to disperse, all of which are unsafe factors for storage. Therefore, controlling the impurities below 5% can improve storage stability.

Timely Ventilation: Due to the strong respiration, high grain temperature and high water content of the new paddy, it should be ventilated, cooled and rained in a timely manner. Especially in winter, the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the grain pile is large, so it is necessary to increase the frequency of ventilation, dig deeply into the grain surface, distribute the heat of the grain pile, and prevent condensation. Where conditions permit, mechanical ventilation can be used. SRON fully considered this when designing the paddy rice silo for the owner, and installed a ventilation system in the paddy steel silo.

Pests Control: After the paddy rice is put into storage, especially after the early and middle paddy is put into storage, it is easy to be infected with stored grain pests. Therefore, it is necessary to take timely and effective measures to comprehensively control pests after paddy rice storage. Usually, protective agents or fumigants are used for prevention and control.

Advantages and Characteristics of Paddy Rice Steel Silos
Traditional bagged paddy rice is not feasible for storing a large amount of paddy rice, because the bagged paddy is airtight and the paddy is prone to mildew and deterioration. Considering economic benefits and other reasons, many paddy rice storage manufacturers prefer to choose steel silos to store paddy. Storing paddy rice in steel silos can improve work efficiency, standardize work processes, improve enterprise management levels, and reduce labor input.

Under normal circumstances, the use of steel silos should also be equipped with corresponding systems and processes, such as grain feeding and discharging, ventilation, fumigation, grain monitoring, cleaning, dust removal, loading and unloading, storage, cooling, anti-riot and other supporting systems and processes, which provides a guarantee for the safe storage of steel silos. After the paddy rice is dried, it can be stored in the steel silo, and the fully automatic conveying system transports the paddy rice from the drying tower to the storage silo. During storage, the paddy rice in the silo is aerated and its temperature is constantly monitored to ensure the paddy rice remains in optimal condition.
