Due to the large mass of grain stored, it is not reasonable to expect the system to dry the grain.The systems are used to aerate (1/10 CFM per bushel) the grain, cooling it down and preventing overheating or spoilage. These systems can also be used to maintain the mass of grain until it can be properly dried. With the large masses of grain stored in Quonsets, even 10% of spoiled grain can mean large financial losses.
Removable base allows ease of installation on existing bins. Lap over design prevents moisture leakage and condensation. Mushroom shape design makes it more difficult for snow and moisture to enter the bin than with traditional goose neck designs. Vent measurements: 15' inside diameter, 18' outside diameter.The number of vents required on a particular bin is dependent upon the volume of air being moved through the grain.
