Clinker Storage

Optimal foundation support for clinker

Heavy and with a steep angle of repose, clinker requires substantial foundation systems and a storage solution where space can be fully utilized. Choose a dome and get all the features you need for optimal clinker storage.

More storage, smaller footprint: Warehouses and flat-storage structures can only be built so tall before their strength is compromised; with domes, customers can store more product in a smaller footprint, stacking it deeper and taking up less valuable property at the site. While some businesses require three to five buildings for flat storage, one dome will likely accommodate the same amount of material in one structure. The double curvature of a dome lends itself to strength and the ability to build up, rather than out.  For heavy products like clinker, a dome always beats flat storage and traditional silos because of the strength of the dome structure itself.

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 novel foundation options in addition to driving piles, often minimizing or eliminating the need for a deep foundation.

Strong from the top down: The dome’s double curvature lends strength to the entire surface, and the apex can bear an especially large load efficiently, ideal even for a multiple-level headhouse and complex conveyer system.
