Project Profile: 27’ Sukup Grain Bin with Accessories

Sometimes it’s more than just a big storage bin that gets the job done. At FS Construction Services, we know that each customer has a different set of circumstances and a different set of needs. Because of this, our grain system experts take the time to identify the right storage solution and ensure it is outfitted with the proper accessories. This attention to detail is the only way to make sure a project is as efficient and functional as possible.

When it comes to grain drying, storage capacity is unquestionably important. A bountiful harvest is no good if there is nowhere to dry and store the results of your hard work. Similarly, you can have all the space in the world for drying and storage, but if that space does not control moisture, you’ll end up with rotten grain. Choosing the right accessories for your grain bin can be as crucial as choosing the right grain bin itself.

Recently, we were able to help a customer not only find the right structure for their expanding operation, but also the right equipment to ensure that operation’s success. After meeting with the customer and determining their needs, we built a 27’ 6-ring Sukup grain bin with a capacity of over 11,000 bushels. However, knowing that they were harvesting in high-moisture conditions, we also installed a FASTIR stir machine, which will reduce moisture variation from top to bottom in the stirred grain, and will help provide more evenly dried grain throughout. Additionally, we mounted an LP heater, a fan to provide necessary airflow, and finally, to complete the structure, we installed an 8” horizontal unload with power sweep so our clients can make fast work of their bin clean out process.

The customer not only received all the space they needed, but the ability to effectively condition all the grain that goes into that new space.
