Project details

Pfahnl Backmittel is an Austrian company specializing in producing bakery ingredients and additives. With over 500 years of experience, they have built a strong reputation in the food industry. The company manufactures a wide range of products used in bakeries and food processing companies in more than 40 countries.

For Pfahnl Backmittel, we constructed an impressive silo tower reaching a height of over 35 meters. The 12 silo cells are nearly 26 meters tall and provide a storage capacity of over 2,350 m³. The entire structure is supported by a concrete foundation over 11 meters high. Given the significant internal and external loads on such a tall silo, a robust construction that meets all quality standards is essential. Want to learn more about how we achieve this? Find out here.

To meet Pfahnl Backmittel’s processing requirements, we used smooth walls for the bran and corrugated walls for the grains. This combination ensures an optimal storage solution in terms of price and process efficiency. By storing the grains and bran separately, Pfahnl maintains the quality and integrity of its raw materials and by-products.

Efficiency is our top priority not only in the technical solution but also on the construction site. Through careful coordination with all involved parties, we were literally able to rise to great heights in less than 10 weeks. What a view from a height of 46 meters!

Procedure The regulations of the industry, the properties of the material, the geographical conditions of the construction site, the weather conditions in the region… we leave nothing to chance. We therefore work according to the TSC roadmap. This way, we work efficiently and do not overlook any detail. A solid approach for a solid result.

Customized silo in 7 steps
  • In the first step, we discuss the requirements, capacity needs, external conditions and preconditions. What challenges should we take into account. Result: a programme of requirements; our basis.
  • Our concrete advice for fulfilling the need. A construction concept, with a tailor-made proposal according to the programme of requirements, complete with a competitive offer and time schedule. Result: The start of our further cooperation.
  • Wind pressure, snow load, internal weight, regulations, process flow and other important starting points. Our designers make their calculations with these facts in mind. Result: a reliable construction calculation.
  • The new silo plant is now being designed down to the smallest detail and worked out in workshop drawings. All details are discussed together. Resulr: After your approval, we will start production.
  • Reliability is our most important pillar. Our construction planning is therefore well thought out. We take into account the transport route and its obstacles, the (often challenging) situation at the construction site and the local capacity. Result: final planning with delivery date.
  • Led by a TSC supervisor, our experienced assembly team gets to work. We keep in regular contact about the progress in the meantime. With knowledge of local regulations and the right permits, we work safely and competently. Result: A carefully constructed new silo ready for use!
  • Every completion is a moment of celebration. We are happy to evaluate the project together. Of course, because we want to see our work in action, but also to learn from practical experience and fine-tune details where necessary. Result: a long-term partnership.
