GSI GRAIN BINS
FARM BIN RANGE
Standard ranges from 15 foot diameter 45 tones storage to 60 foot diameter 3,500 tones. All silos are designed for high cycle loading, i.e. high usage of product in and out and at high tonnage rates. Silo roof, wall sheet and vertical stiffener material is manufactured from High Tensile steel with 4" corrugation. Silos are available stiffened or non-stiffened. GSI silos come with G90 galvanising for ultimate weather resistance. Farm bin range is capable of supporting full internal stirrer systems as well as full perforated drying floors and sweep/unloading augers.
The GSI commercial bins range from an 18 foot diameter with a capacity of 180 tonnes to a 105 foot diameter and a capacity of 20,000 tonnes. Silos are available with a 65,000 psi high strength stiffener columns, easy access sidewall doors, and the option of 5 gauge galvanised steel wall sheets giving a 37.5% increase in strength over other manufacturers who only use 8 gauge steel. The roof is constructed of fully overlapping roof panels with an optional addition of the roof support ring and roof vents.
All silos are assembled using heavy zinc plated, high strength, dichromate coated bolts with individual bolt seal washers for an unbeatable weather seal. All silos are available with safety cages and easy access ladders.
Silos can be used as either drying silos or low volume aeration with our ability to do custom floor designs with either inset laterals or a full perforated floor.
Standard ranges from 12" diameter 40 tonnes storage to 36 diameter 1513 tonnes, all hoppers are designed for high cycle loading, i.e. high usage of product in and out and at high tonnage rates. From 40 to 60 degree hoppers are available depending on suitability to application. Entablature steel leg work is cleaned, specially primed and painted. Silo roof, wall sheet and vertical stiffener material is manufactured from pre galvanised steel sheet with minimum G90 galv coating.
- Corrugation is roll formed in the GSI factory to provide a uniform and superior quality sheet.
- Side wall sheet design is standard with double row, hill and valley bolted for strong panel connections.
- The bin anchors are positioned at each stiffener to effectively hold the bin in position when its full, being loaded and unloaded or standing empty.
- Large 30" peak opening allows for fast, easy filling with easy access from overhead equipment and greater airflow during drying.
When closed the peak cap seals tightly and is held securely closed with a spring loaded latch.
GSI silos can be designed up to UBC (Universal Building Code) 4 seismic loading.
