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.
