SCAFCO - Commercial Grain Bins & Silos
From Grain Systems
SCAFCO commercial grain bins and silos offer many outstanding strength and durability features. Wide corrugated steel sheets manufactured from high- strength steel, heavy-duty galvanized steel stiffeners, and strong box-rib roofs are some of the quality features available.Our complete line of commercial bins and silos is available in diameters from 15 ' (4.57 m) to over 138' (42.06 m). Extra-tall sizes are available in all diameters. SCAFCO also has a full range of accessories available to complete your storage silo projects, feed storage solutions, and ethanol and bio diesel facilities.
Galvanized Steel Wall Sheets
Silo wall sheets are precision roll formed using galvanized steel with a minimum of 57 ksi (393 MPa) yield strength. Silo wall sheets are pre-punched in a single-stroke operation, assuring accurate hole alignment and uniform fit. SCAFCO's unique 42 and 2/3' (1.08 M) galvanized steel silo wall sheets have a 2 and 2/3' pitch and 1/2' (67.7 mm x 12.7mm) deep corrugation.
Side Discharge System
SCAFCO's side discharge system allows gravity load out to trucks or rail cars. Interior flumes channel grain from the top storage level to the discharge chute. Our side discharge systems are available with 12' (300mm) square discharge pipes, racks, and pinion gates.
The shape of the M stiffeners surpasses the compressive strengths of previous open-faced stiffeners. This profile can handle the drawdown loads imposed by very tall grain bins and silos, as well as severe seismic loads. SCAFCO M series stiffeners utilize 57 ksi yield strength (939 MPa) [65 ksi] minimum tensile strength (448 MPa), hot-dip galvanized steel. Each bin and silo utilizes several stiffener gauges.
The stiffeners transfer drawdown loads from the side-walls to the foundation. In order to provide durable silo anchorage to resist lateral and uplift loads, the stiffener base plate is factory-welded to the bottom stiffener.
SCAFCO provides a complete ladder system inside and outside of the grain silo. Safety cages and rest platforms are also available.
Commercial grain bins and silos feature a heavy-duty 23 and 1/2' x 26' (597 mm x 660 mm) access door. Access doors are factory welded into the silo's wall sheet.
