About RobLew

Lewis and Robinson Engineering Limited are a firm which was established back in 1974 as a partnership. In 1976, we began manufacture of meal silos and have achieved and maintained a long-standing track record in the silo industry.

In 1993 we introduced a 'Galvanised Silo' into our range, and this has proved to be a very reliable and popular range with our customers.

More recently, plastisol silos have been introduced, providing an alternative to paint when the silo is required to blend in with the environment. It has also been popular with those who want the silos to match existing sheds. The undercoated inside and plastic coated outside also add additional corrosion resistance.

We aim to provide each of our customers with a silo that is best suited to their particular requirements, and it is our priority to speak with, and give any advice necessary, before we commence the construction of a silo.

Silos and materials used may be viewed at our workshop in Ballygawley, Co. Tyrone, and many completed and erected silos are on view throughout the north and south of Ireland.

We have also been requested to supply silos to farmers in Scotland, England and Wales. As we do with our local farmers, we consult with each customer and have been able to supply many with our silos, especially in the Ayrshire, Dumfries and Stranraer areas. Please see our contacts page for your local agent.

General Information about our Silos:

  • 1.6mm gauge British Galvanised Steel

  • Inspection Hatch
  • Health & Safety Labels

Advantages of the Silo:
  • Saves money on bulk buying
  • Compact and space saving
  • All vermin proof
  • No loss
  • Strong, hygienic and very long lasting
  • Convenient and adaptable for feeder wagon, meal bags etc
  • No man-handling or heavy lifting necessary
  • A sensible and economic investment for your enterprises.

Galvanised 1.5 Tonne Tote Bins.
Tote bins are a smaller version of Silos in that they are able to be transported by fork lift trucks or other vehicles from where the meal is mixed at the farmer's own mill/site and then taken to where the feed can be discharged by Flexi Auger or drawn off by trolley or other means. These bins have a top opening hatch which can be operated from the ground. Materials used are similar to that of the large Meal Silo.

1 X 3.5 Tonne Silo.
Standing here, we have our 'baby' bin - the smallest of all.

Storing approximately 3.5 tonnes, many of the part-time or smaller farmers would find this Silo 'a must'. It holds ample feed for their stock and cost is kept to a minimum. It keeps their foodstuffs clean and dry, away from vermin and is very easily operated manually.

1 X 8 Tonne Gravity Flow Side-Discharge Silo..
Looking at the Silo here, you can see that it is being used to discharge feed into a shed. Using this particular method, feed can also be filled directly into a loader bucket from the side-discharge.

1 X 8 Tonne Fully Enclosed Silo..
As you can see, this Silo is enclosed totally to the ground. It can serve a number of purposes in that it gives protection to the user as he operates manually, either using a Meal Trolley, or bagging-off system.

The door is wide enough to allow a meal trolley to be filled inside and also has room to manoeuvre same. It can serve as a small store which many farmers take advantage of.

6 - 1 X 10 Tonne Split Silo
A 'Split' Silo is one which allows the storage of 2 different feeds in the one silo. It is manufactured the same as the other Silos, the only difference being the division in the centre. A Gravity Flow Side Discharge can be operated with this Silo.

By using this particular silo, the farmer has the advantage of having to purchase only one Silo instead of two separate ones, thereby reducing costs and space. It is very suitable in regard to Mixed Farming. Even on the smallest of farms, where the farmer may not wish to store a large quantity of foodstuffs or is not able to purchase large tonnages of feed, this Silo provides an answer to both problems.

1 X 22 Tonne Split Silo
This Silo would be similar to our 10 Tonne Silo only in a bigger size. It enables the storage of 2 different feeds and many farmers favour this, especially in the mixed farming situation.

You will see here that this 22 Tonne Split Silo has been fitted with 2 separate Flexi Auger systems allowing the feeds to go to different locations.

With this Silo in the right location, it can remove a lot of manual labour and save the farmer a lot of time and energy at feeding times.
