Flaked Corn

Kamengo has developed a design practice capable of tackling complex projects, including retrofits of storage and feed arrangements that suffer from plugging.

An improperly designed bin and feeder handling flaked corn will suffer from unreliable, difficult to control material flow.

In 1999, Kamengo retrofitted a 15-foot diameter corn silo at a brewery in Vancouver, Canada. The silo was producing erratic and unreliable flow. The silo’s slope and outlet dimension did not exceed the stored material’s piping dimension. As a result, the stored flaked corn would stagnate along the bin walls causing hang-ups. After the retrofit, the silo could be discharged in an even controlled manner without plug-ups, allowing the plant to operate at optimum capacity.
