SIDEWALL STRENGTH

64 lb/bushel Grain Weights
Sioux Steel farm bins are designed for grains weighing up to 64 lb/bushel. The industry standard is just 60 lb/bushel. Sioux Steel farm bins are designed for grain weights of the future.

51 lbs/ft3 Free Flowing Grains
Each bin is designed for free flowing grain densities up to 51 lbs/ft3 or 55 lbs/ft3 including compaction. Sioux farms bins easily handle typical corn densities of approximately 45 lbs/ft3. 

4” Corrugation
4” corrugation on sheets reduce friction load on the sidewalls and allows grain to flow easily down bin wall with less resistance. Fewer sheets cover a wider area, lowering construction costs.

G115 Galvanized Steel
Standard on all Sioux Steel grain systems, this thick coating on each 44” tall bin sheet and roof panels provide years of protection from harsh weather conditions and rust.
