Talleres Jois develops new silos

Talleres Jois has replaced an austenitic grade with Outokumpu’s duplex LDX 2101 in silos for atomized clay, achieving corrosion resistance. To be able to handle the clay properly and ensure high product quality, clay suppliers need stainless steel silos for the intermediate storage and distribution of this aqueous product. Talleres Jois states that duplex is suitable for storing this clay because it has high mechanical strength, it is easy to bend, and has good machinability. Talleres Jois fabricated the LDX 2101 clay silos for Nuevas Atomizadas from 2.5mm thick sheet, using 1.4301, with sheet thicknesses needing to be between 3.0mm and 6.0mm. In the conical bottom section of the silos, the fabricator used 4.0mm thickness, down from the traditional 6.0mm. Talleres Jois is the first to switch to LDX 2101, having completed 40 new silos for the Spanish atomized clay supplier Nuevas Atomizadas in summer 2007.
