Our Products

WA’s Leader in Grain Storage & Aeration.

Store your grain in top condition, cool and dry while reducing insect infestation. 

Rural Silos

Longer lasting silos
Silos from 3-86 tonne

Our 3-86 tonne Silo bases are made from longer lasting  hot dipped galvanised pipe with fully welded “Zincalume” base sheets (not riveted & guaranteed not to fail), steeper top and bottom cones, and are fitted with our unique, easy to use “Snap Tight” remote opening lid system. Not only can we boast the longest lasting silos made from more corrosive resistant material but we also use the thickest and strongest wall sheeting in the industry.

Meets and exceeds Australian standard AS2628 – Sealed grain storage silos.

Built to Aust Standards
Stronger silo bodies

Our friendly competitor might say that we use ‘Pop Rivets’ on our silo bodies but they are actually ‘lock Stem’ rivets as used in the aircraft industry with a high tensile mandrel that breaks off inside the rivet for extra strength. We have a self piercing riveter (like our competitors) but find it too slow and cumbersome. The air riveting system we use is much faster in construction and is one way that we can keep our prices down. Our body section is stronger and is one of only a few that meets AS ‘3774-1996 Loads on bulk solids containers’. Not only did we exceed the standards by making the silo walls stiffer, we added 20% to the wall thickness. This not only makes the walls ‘Super Strong’ for handling grain but completely eliminates any damage during transport.

152t Spiral silos
Spiral silos from 109-152 tonne

Our 152 tonne spiral silos have revolutionised grain storage in WA by being the largest fully sealed transportable grain silos in Australia.

Less handling
Sealable and aeratable larger silos

Many customers who have previously used rows of 76 tonne silos are now using larger silos, saving time and money. The biggest advantage in using the larger silos being: three 50 tonne road train loads can go in or out of the silo before the auger needs to be moved, greatly reducing handling.

260t Silos
260 tonne Spiral Silos

DE Engineers also manufacture 260 tonne site built spiral silos. The spiral silo has an extremely strong airtight wall system with smooth flat inside walls which is very important to avoid stagnation of dust and product (that usually form in the corrugated plates of larger bolt together silos). The absence of bolts on the silo shell prevents the formation of rust that forms on the bolt heads (extending to the panels) and help seal the silo gas tight without sealants.

Silo Transport Fleet
Fast efficient silo transport

With one of the largest fleets of silo transport equipment including 7 Prime Movers, two Bobtails, 4 large silos trailers and 4 single silo trailers.  DE Engineers can transport up to 1000 tonnes of grain storage on the road in one move.

Double Silo Transport
Extra long silo trailers

DE Engineers ‘extra long’ silo trailers can transport 2 x 92 cubic metre silos at a time making them the most cost effective silos for grain storage. Built ‘Extra Long’ to accomodate the taller base and roof angles used on our silos which allow better grain flow and more storage. ie: our 2530 bushel silo has more capacity than other 2700 or 2800 bushel silos, so always check the cubic volume.

Splayed Silo Legs
OUR LATEST INNOVATIONS

At Wagin Woolorama this year we were asked to design silos with wider openings for large auger hoppers and to raise the height of the outlet opening handle with a universal joint to stop sheep from operating the outlet. This will also allow auger hoppers to be raised higher under the silo to help prevent spillage. This option will ba available for most silos.

'Hopper Mate'
New innovation in silo hoppers

Smaller, lighter silo hoppers are easier to use and have less grain left inside when the job is finished. Our latest innovation is the ‘Hopper Mate’ which straps on to the auger barrel and the silo hopper preventing grain from being pushed forward, spilling on to the ground.
Nb/- Raising the hopper as high as possible under the outlet will prevent grain spilling over the sides.

Touch button unloading
Under silo conveyors

We have also developed  a custom designed 200t/h, modular conveyor system for the massive 152t spiral silos which will allow operators to load trucks at the touch of a button while blending from multiple silos without the need to move augers.

Safer, more comfortable ladders
Our latest silo innovations:

Innovation is what DE Engineers is renowned for. Even our safety cages are unique, being made in one piece for extra strength to reduce flexing and can be split down the middle and laid flat for transport.

'Snap tight' remote opening lids
New lid opening system

Lid systems have evolved but we have always tried to make them easy to operate sometimes with spring closing devices. While earlier lid systems were hard to maintain gas pressure our “snap tight’ lids are easy to use with just the right geometry to make them open and lock closed with the least amount of effort. Now we can guarantee all of our silos Meet and exceed Australian standard AS2628 – Sealed grain storage silos.

Designed in WA for WA farmers
Silo aeration

In Australia aeration will keep your grain cool, avoid spoiling and stop weevils hatching but fumigation is still necessary for immediate eradication if infested. This is why we offer you the best of both (fumigation and aeration). Many customers that are using aeration have eradicated weevil infestation completely by keeping stored grain cool and dry.
