Bolted Silos & Geodesic Domes

Dry Bulk Storage Silos

The Tank Connection bolted Rolled Taper Panel (RTP) silos for the storage of minerals and aggregates in a wide range of industries.

In cement and mineral storage systems, Ammermann together with our overseas partners can provide you with the most cost efficient approach for a complete storage and truck load out facility.

  • Drive through hopper outlet silos up to 3000m3  and flat bottom silos up to 5000m3
  • Silos from as small as 100m3 up to and above 5000m3
  • Typical hopper slopes: 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 & custom slopes

The Tank Connection silo is the most feasible storage solution on todays market offering a superior product that is easily containerised and shipped world wide. Installation is completely from ground level using their jacking system which  eliminates the need for costly site scaffolding and crane hire.

It remains the only bolted storage silo design that is recognised as an alternate design to field weld construction.

Silo Erection

The Tank Connection bolted silo site installation is less than half the time required for field-weld construction.

The bolted silo construction is modular and utilises a factory baked-on powder coat system, which is superior to any field applied coatings.

Due to its modular assembly, the Tank Connection silo construction is easily containerised and shipped worldwide. It remains the only bolted storage silo design that is recognised as an alternate design to field-weld construction.

The merits of the products performance in the field have made it the preferred steel silo design for cement storage worldwide.

The Unmatched Performance of Tank Connection’s Fusion FBE™ System

At Tank Connection, we rightfully claim the premier powder coat system for bolted storage tanks worldwide. Our proprietary system and controlled station processes are unmatched by any other bolted tank manufacturer.

Tank Connection’s state-of-the-art powder coat technology is the only powder coat line “certified” by Akzo Nobel for bolted storage tanks. Akzo Nobel is the largest powder coat supplier worldwide.


TC’s fusion powder system is applied through an electrostatic process from an automated state-of-the-art, fusion powder coating line. The proprietary fusion powder coating systems offered by Tank Connection are thermoset powders that utilize low-molecular-weight polymers. Once the powder is applied, the bolted steel panels enter an oven where the resins, pigments and other reactive agents cross-link to produce a high molecular weight binder system. Thus, resulting with a tough, durable coating system designed for high chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, flexibility, chip resistance, weather ability and UV protection.

Tank Connection’s thermoset processes are irreversible. Once curing and cross-linking takes place, the powder coating process can not be returned to its original form by any means. Testing data by Akzo Nobel clearly shows that TC’s Fusion™ System is unmatched in performance!
