Sugar—no room for error
For a product so sweet, there’s little flexibility when it comes to storage conditions and sugar. Constancy is key; too much heat or too much cold compromises the product or might make it volatile. A few drops of moisture or a bit of condensation will turn sugar into a useless candy coating. Prevent conditions from turning sour by selecting a dome for your sugar storage:
Superior moisture protection: The custom PVC airform covering the dome prevents exposure to moisture. The dome’s insulated nature also prevents heating and cooling of the walls and air inside, thus preventing condensation on the walls and protecting the integrity of the product.
Temperature control: The combination of waterproof membrane, reinforced concrete shell, and continuous layer of polyurethane foam prevents extreme temperature fluctuation.
Aeration system: Specific to sugar, domes are constructed with systems that force air through piles to keep temps consistent.
Explosion protection: Domes that store sugar are built with an explosion panel over the vent at the apex; this panel seals out moisture but is rated to release in an explosion event or when air pressure is excessive. When the explosion panel is loosed, the shape of the structure channels energy through the panel, meaning less chance of your dome being compromised should an explosion occur.
