malt storage silo Introduction

A malt storage silo is an industrial storage facility specifically designed for storing malt, a key ingredient in beer brewing. Malt is typically made from barley that has undergone processes such as steeping, germination, and drying. Since the quality and freshness of malt are crucial for the brewing process, the design of malt storage silos aims to provide suitable storage conditions to maintain the quality and extend the shelf life of the malt.

Characteristics of malt storage silo


Good sealing performance prevents the impact of the external environment on the quality of malt, such as humidity, temperature, and pests.

Ventilation System

An integrated ventilation system helps regulate the temperature and humidity inside the silo to prevent the malt from becoming damp or spoiling.


Depending on the scale of the industrial brewery, malt storage silos can be designed with various capacities, from small to large, to meet different needs.

Automated Control System

Modern malt storage silos may be equipped with automated control systems for remote monitoring and operation.

Loading and Unloading System

Designed with an efficient loading and unloading system for easy malt entry and exit, reducing manual labor.


Constructed with durable materials to withstand long-term use and storage conditions.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Easy to clean and maintain to keep the storage environment hygienic.


In addition to storing malt, some silo designs are also suitable for storing other types of grains or raw materials.

The structure of a malt storage silo

Silo Body Structure

This is the main body of the silo, typically made of steel or concrete, designed in a cylindrical shape to provide maximum storage capacity.

Base Structure

The base may include a flat or conical bottom that aids in the flow and unloading of materials.

Top Structure

The top may feature manholes, ventilation openings, loading hatches, etc., for operation and maintenance.

Loading and Unloading System

Includes conveyor belts, screw conveyors, or other mechanical devices for loading malt into and unloading it from the silo.

Ventilation System

Ensures air circulation inside the silo, controlling temperature and humidity to prevent malt from becoming damp or spoiling.

Sealing System

Ensures the silo’s sealing to prevent the impact of the external environment on the quality of malt.

Support Structure

Includes support frames and reinforcement to ensure the structural stability of the silo.

Control System

An automated control system is used to monitor the operation of the silo, such as material flow, ventilation, and temperature and humidity control.

Safety Facilities

Such as fire protection systems, emergency exits, and safety warnings to ensure the safety of operating personnel.

Monitoring System

Used to monitor the condition of the malt inside the silo, such as temperature, humidity, and storage levels.

Maintenance Access

malt storage silo technical parameters

Scientifically speaking, the Silo capacity should be measured with volume (m3). Even in the same grain Silo, the storage tons will be different for different grains with different densities. The following table is calculated based on a  Silo density of 0.75kg/m3, and surely HKB customizes  Silo systems unique for you.
