Acrison’s fully integrated silo storage and feeding systems are a product of over 50 years of expertise and experience in dry solids handling and feeding. Using advanced technologies, and superior components, each silo is specifically configured to meet a given customer’s individual application requirements.


  • Skirted silos ship as a single unit with all internal components fully installed, piped and wired, and properly braced for damage-free shipping. This is advantageous in that it greatly reduces the onsite work required by the contractor compared to a silo shipped in more than one section and internal components shipped loose.
  • Rugged, heavy-duty, and reliable Acrison Feeders are used under bulk storage silos.
  • Chemical removal is provided by vibratory bin activators on an as-needed basis, eliminating the potential for pressurization and/or fluidization typically cause by air injection methods.
  • Custom PLC-based controls, designed, manufactured, and programmed by Acrison.
  • Over 50 years of experience handling/metering dry chemicals with dependable service and support.
