On farm grain storage is big business. And as crop yields rise producers need more space for all those crops. Brock Grain Systems announces it's adding high-capacity models to its new line of Everest E-Series grain storage bins. The new models are 132- and 156-feet in diameter and offer top storage capacities of up to 1.24 million and 1.3 million bushels respectively.
The new line of bins also include the company's Everest Summit System that makes it easy and more efficient to connect the bins with LeMar Catwalk and Tower support systems (shown). Dealers got the news about the new bins late in January at the company's national sales meeting. This isn't the company's first foray into big bins, the M-Series is also available in million-bushel capacities.
The E-Series Everest bins feature outside stiffened sidewalls with an inside corrugated panel surface. The M-Series bins have a unique combination of corrugated exterior sidewalls and smooth interior sidewall panels and interior sidewall stiffeners. And according to a press statement, dealers at that national sales meeting were told to "expect the new Everest Bin design standards to continue to offer more features and changes in the company's line of stiffened bins later this year."
Dave Dell, global manager and sales director, Brock, comments: "The Everest E-Series grain bins offer the tallest eave heights in the industry along with greater roof peak load capacities. Because of increased grain yields and productivity, the grain industry is moving toward larger storage bins along with larger conveying equipment to help increase capacity and shorten storage turnaround times."
According to the company, those higher eave heights offer nearly a 14% increase in storage capacity compared with previous grain bin models that have the same diameter footprint. This allows growers to meet higher storage needs with less worry about space concerns on the ground. Learn more about the new bins and the Everest E-Series by visiting brockgrain.com.
