Bauxite—sizing up storage options
Storing bauxite is a weighty matter, and designing the proper storage system is critical to the overall success and economy of a project. A dome is the perfect storage system.
More storage, smaller footprint: With domes, customers can store more product in a smaller footprint, stacking it deeper and taking up less valuable property at the site than compared to a flat storage. And compared to a concrete silo, the dome allows you to store more bauxite in the same footprint and height due to the fact that product can be stored inside the entire dome structure.
Firm foundations: No matter how heavy your load, Dome Technology can customize a foundation system to support it. Based on geotechnical analysis and an understanding of your product, our team provides innovative foundation options for an overall economical system.
Access options: Dome Technology continues to innovate the application of cost-effective, competitive reclaim systems. By partnering with reclaim manufacturers, our team has the resources and technology know-how to build the dome and get the product in and out.
Reclaim options: Our domes can be designed and equipped for reclaim options like front-end loader, gravity, stacker reclaimer, screw reclaimer, and more. The number and type of tunnels are designed and built to suit your project.
