Aims. We present a study of the silicon-bearing species detected in a line-confusion limited survey towards Orion KL performed with the IRAM 30-m telescope. The analysis of the line survey is organized by families of molecules. Our aim is to derive physical and chemical conditions for each family taking all observed lines into account from all isotopologs of each species. The large number of transitions in different vibrationally excited states covered by our data, which range from 80 to 280… Expand
