A project summary documenting Dome Technology’s recent grain-storage project with agricultural-commodities leader Gavilon is available now.
In August 2021 Gavilon completed its first season with a new DomeSilo capable of storing 1.37 million bushels in Shelburn, Indiana. The dome replaced use of ground piles, allowing the company to reduce labor demand, maximize mix and blend opportunities, and better protect product. Soybeans were stored in the DomeSilo for 11 months, during which the interior temperature was well managed; in July, for example, product temps in the bottom quarter of the dome were 35 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
