Superior urea storage
Dome Technology provides optimal storage and material-handling systems for urea with greater value than traditional silo and flat-storage options. The PVC airform covering the dome prevents exposure to moisture and interior condensation, reducing the likelihood of packing.
- Optimal moisture protection: The custom PVC airform covering the entire dome prevents exposure to moisture. The dome’s insulated nature prevents heating and cooling of the walls and air inside, eliminating condensation on the walls and protecting the integrity of the product.
- Explosion protection: Domes that store urea can be built with explosion panels in the apex that seal out moisture but are also designed to release in a deflagration event. The energy from a potential deflagration event is directed away from personnel and equipment. In addition, the dome doesn’t have roof beams or trusses that collect dust as compared to flat storages and silos, eliminating the concern of dust build-up that can contribute to a potential fire or deflagration event.
- Reduced packing: The dome’s double curvature reduces condensation and eliminates moisture that exacerbates this issue.
