SCAFCO Commercial Bins
SCAFCO commercial grain bins offer outstanding strength and durability. All roofs, wall sheets and stiffeners are manufactured from G115 coated steel (min. 350gr/m2 zinc). SCAFCO 42 ⅔”(1.08 m) wide corrugated sheets are manufactured from high strength steel, with galvanized steel stiffeners and strong box-rib roofs. Diameters range from 15’ to 138’ (4.57m to 42.06 m). SCAFCO also manufactures material handling equipment to complete your grain storage project.
Commercial Bin Features
- Sizes ranging from 15’ to 138’ in diameter.
- Capacities in excess of 1.2 million bushels (32,650 MT).
- Various solutions for aeration, including a Quad F-pattern aeration system designed for all of the largest bins.
- Even the largest SCAFCO bins feature a clear span roof, which means that there are no internal roof supports to impede the cleanout of the bin.
Farm Grain Bins - (15 - 138’ diameter bins)
- Capacities in excess of 1.2 millions bushels.
- Heavy-duty stiffeners use 57-ksi yield strength (393 MPa) [65 ksi minimum tensile strength (448 MPa)], hot-dipped galvanized steel.
- Galvanized steel wall sheets have a 2 ⅔” pitch and ½” (67.7 mm x 12.7 mm) deep corrugation for added strength.
Wall Sheets With 2 ⅔” Pitch And ½” (67.7 mm x 12.7 mm) Deep Corrugation
SCAFCO unique 42 ⅔” (1.08 m) galvanized steel wall sheets have a 2 ⅔” pitch and ½” (67.7 mm x 12.7 mm) deep corrugation. Wall sheets are pre-punched in a single stroke operation, assuring accurate hole alignment and uniform fit. Sheets are precision roll-formed using galvanized steel with a minimum of 57 ksi (393 MPa) yield strength.
Heavy-Duty Stiffeners Use 57-ksi Yield Strength
SCAFCO heavy-duty stiffeners use 57-ksi yield strength (393 MPa) [65 ksi minimum tensile strength (448 MPa)], hot-dipped galvanized steel. The profile can handle the drawdown of very tall bins and severe seismic loads. Each bin utilizes several stiffener gauges for the most efficient column design.
Heavy-duty stiffeners transfer draw down loads from the sidewalls to the foundation. Stiffener base plate is factory welded to the bottom stiffener, providing durable bin anchorage in order to resist lateral and uplift loads.
Side Discharge System
SCAFCO side discharge system allows gravity loadout to trucks or rail cars. Interior flumes channel grain from the top storage level to the discharge chute. Available with 12″ (300 mm) square discharge outlet and rack and pinion gate.
SCAFCO roof structures have peak capacities that lead the industry and can be designed to meet any peak load requirements. All roofs feature cold-formed, G-115 coated steel (min. 350 gr/m2 zinc) galvanized support structures, ensuring long life and service without the fear of losing your investment to corrosion. SCAFCO roofs also include corrugated roof panels, adding strength and rigidity to the roof.
Heavy-duty 23 ½” x 26″ (597 mm x 660 mm) access doors are factory welded into the bin’s wall sheets. Easy access options include a heavy-duty walk-in door 28″ x 60″ (711 mm x 1524 mm).
SCAFCO giant doors are designed for drive-in access for small front-end loaders or other equipment. Two sizes are available:
- 6’ 3 ½” high x 5’ 7 ½” wide (1.92 m x 1.72 m)
- 8’ 0″ high x 6’ 0″ wide (2.44 m x 1.83 m).
Complete interior & exterior ladder systems are available with safety cage and rest platforms for sidewall heights above 20’ (6.10 m).
SCAFCO spiral stairs include galvanized stair beams and brackets, non-skid stair treads and handrails.
The railings provide a 28″ (711 mm) clear width walkway with handrail 34″ to 36″ (860 mm to 910 mm) above treads.
SCAFCO roof stairways include galvanized stair beams and brackets, nonskid stair treads, hand rails and posts from eave to center fill cap and surrounding the inspection hatch at the eave to provide safe access to these areas.
The railings provide a 24″ (610 mm) clear width walk way with handrail 34″ to 36″ (860 mm to 910 mm) above treads.
