LIPP® Betavator Sugar Beet Silo

For storing biomass to be used for energy production or animal feed

The LIPP-System is based on a world-wide unique and genuinely simple principle of tank production. Steel coils, machines and accessories are transported to the construction site, the production of the tank takes place on site – fast, efficiently and flexibly in height and diameter. In an automated, two-stage process, a profile is formed from the steel strip which is joined in a second step – at the same time, the container rotates spirally. The tight and stability-supporting connection of the steel band can be effected by the LIPP Double-Seam as well as the LIPP Welding Technology.

Openings and leadthroughs of any size and shape can be installed, even in the event of subsequent upgrades. There is a wide range of peripheral accessories available for the technical equipment of the tank:

  • Roof insulation
  • Pumping systems
  • Flexible mixing technology
  • Inspection glasses
  • Stairways, ladders, platforms, connection pieces, manholes, etc.

Preservation of high-quality sugar beet

The LIPP Betavator sugar beet silo is suitable for the optimal year-round storage (siloing) of sugar beets and other root crops which produce high biogas yields per hectare of cultivated land. After mashing, the beets are pumped directly into the gastight LIPP Betavator sugar beet silo where the high-quality sugar beet silage is preserved.

The LIPP Ligavator was developed for the liquid preservation of wet maize and grain. The substrate is mixed via a filling auger and then pumped into the Ligavator. As a result, the operator is saved the laborious task of feeding the digester or the preliminary tank and the energy in the substrate is preserved.

Tried and tested for more than three decades

Both systems are also ideally suitable for feeding pigs and cattle. They enable the feed to be used in an energy-saving and environmentally-friendly way which is fully automated and not dependent on the weather.

As far as the use of renewable raw materials in biogas plants is concerned, besides being suitable for automation this system offers the benefit of significantly reduced retention time in the digester, making it extremely efficient and economical. All containers benefit from the familiar advantages provided by the tried and tested LIPP Double-Seam System and the LIPP material VERINOX®.

These two systems have been proving their agricultural worth in terms of liquid preservation for more than three decades.
