The typical silo design for storage of roasted coffee is the cylindrical multi-cell or compartmentalised silo, in which a number of chambers (cells) are arranged around the central axis in a circular segment-shaped area. Multi-cell silos have capacities of between one and one hundred tonnes, depending on the size of operations and number of varieties to be stored. Container silos, in which rectangular cells are positioned next to one another using optimal space utilisation, are particularly suitable for large storage capacities. Green or roasted coffees of a specific variety are stored in each cell. These silos are filled using special equipment: a multi-cell silo is charged using a rotary pipe distributor, for which a number of outlet openings can be assigned to one inlet opening.
