All steel port silo parts are manufactured in a factory, so the quality can be totally controlled, whereas cast in place concrete silos involve more variables such as concrete delivery and weather. The useful life of concrete before use is less than 2-3 hours. After this period, concrete start losing its optimal characteristics.
The slip frame concrete process is further complicated by the fact it is a dynamic or continuous process. Rebar placement, concrete quality, etc., all affect the final product. Also, field supervision plays a really serious role in concrete silos: more people working on site, longer period of commissioning (due to weather conditions) and, ultimately, higher costs.
Concrete silos can be taller than steel silos but these ones have bigger diameters so the total capacity is highest. For this reason concrete silos are only more suitable when the space is really limited.
It is easier to erect steel silos and also to install accessories like doors, ladders, samplers, etc.
Steel structure is more flexible, so steel silos have better behavior in case of earthquake.
Regarding airtight, both structures are normally airtight if the openings are properly sealed.
