Farm Storage

Farm Storage Grain Bins

No matter how high yields are, harvest time grain prices are no guarantee for maximum profitability. On-site grain storage offers many benefits, including increased harvest capacities and uptime, as well as the freedom to hold your commodity for better returns in the future. Those looking for an edge when markets are low, look to GSI's farm storage grain bins to help maximize profitability.

Four Distinct Grain Bin Types for Your Farm:

 

NSL

 Narrow 2.66" corrugation, unstiffened bins, are available in diameters ranging from 15’ to 48’ and 4 to 15 rings tall. Capacities range from 1,631 to 61,000 bushels.

 

WSL

 Wide 4" corrugation, unstiffened bins are, available in diameters ranging from 15’ to 48’ and 3 to 10 rings tall. Capacities range from 1,677 to 60,000 bushels.

 

FCDL

 GSI also offers stiffened grain bins with 4" corrugation. Farm Commercial stiffened bins are based on the same engineering principles as larger commercial bins and use vertical stiffeners to channel the load of the bin to the foundation more effectively. FCDL bins are available in diameters from 15' to 60' and 3 to 14 rings tall. Capacities range from 1,677 to 122,000 bushels.

 

CFL

 For even more strength, the Commercial Farm Line features 4" corrugation and commercial grade stiffeners. Designed for today’s large commercial farm operations, the CFL grain bin is the largest farm tank currently offered by GSI. Sizes available in 54’ and 60’ diameters and 14 to 21 rings tall. Capacities range from 107,000 to 195,000 bushels. The CFL features full floor or flush floor aeration and sidedraw capability.

Grain Hopper Tanks

Wet holding bins need to be able to support slightly heavier loads than typical ground feed bulk tanks. They are available in 9’, 12’, 15’, 18’ and 21’ diameters and can be used for temporary storage, adapted to several grain drying and conditioning systems, or serve as long term storage for properly dried grain. GSI hopper tanks are designed to hold 45 lbs. per cubic foot, with total bin capacities exceeding 6000 bu. (150 metric tons). Optional view window level indicators can be added for convenient monitoring of grain loading and unloading.

Bin Flooring

GSI manufactures many flooring systems depending on your specific grain type or aeration requirements. All floor parts are galvanized for lasting durability and feature a unique locking system for reduced floor movement and solid support.
