Fly-Ash Storage

Fly-ash storage—making the most of what’s left behind

Whether for environmental reasons or to produce electricity, fly-ash storage needs to provide a dry, consistent environment and requires special material handling to prevent poor flow. Choose a dome and customized loading and reclaim systems as your fly ash storage solution.

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.

Waterproof membrane and insulation: Our domes are completely waterproof, and the dome’s insulated nature also prevents heating and cooling of the walls and air inside, thus preventing condensation from forming and protecting the integrity of the product.

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.

Material-handling solutions: How fast you move your product translates to how fast your company makes money. Let our team boost your speed. In addition to dome construction, we specialize in handling systems—not just those moving product within the structure, but loading and reclaim systems too.

Reduced bridging and rat-holing: Relying on extensive background with stored products, our team can customize a material-handling system to counter poor-flow issues.
