McAree Engineering Launch New Range of Long Life Feed Silos @ RUAS Winter Fair

At the RUAS Winter Fair the McAree team were promoting their full range of meal silos and tote bins.

These included a 16 Ton Split Bin complete with a Diet feeder auger.

In addition McAree have three other V-Mac feed silos (a ten tonne, an eight tonne and a six tonne size)

they also manufacture a four tonne Hopper and two tote bins (1.5 and one tonne sizes).

Safely storing animal feed is an ongoing concern for farmers in Quality Assurance schemes.

They have to keep feed safe, secure and free from contaminants.

It also makes good economic sense to protect valuable animal feed from vermin and spoilage.

However animal feed now contains a more complex range of additives so in certain conditions these reacts with the coating of traditional galvanised metal.

This can significantly reduce the life span of an expensive animal feed silo.

So McAree have changed the material they use to manufacture V-Mac Silos. All their animal feed silos are now manufactured from MagiZinc an innovative Chromium free alternative to traditional galvanised material.

 MagiZinc has been extensively tested by their metal supplier Tata Steel (see PPT).

MagiZinc delivers outstanding corrosion protection compared to conventional galvanised zinc coating. 

This very high protection performance has also been proven in rigorous, independent tests at the University of Kalsruhe in Germany. (See attached info)

After carrying out their own tests McAree Engineering are delighted to be the first silo manufacturer in Ireland or Britain to use this new material.

All silos ordered at the RUAS Winter Fair will have the silo body, cone and lid manufactured using this material.

McAree Engineering has been helping farmers to protect their feed since the 1960’s

when Vincent McAree designed and manufactured the very first V-Mac feed silo.
