Project Profile: Grain Storage and Drying Just in Time for Harvest

Harvest is a season of being stretched, stretched for time when you’re working early mornings and late nights, and stretched for space when you’re filling your bins to capacity. And sometimes, both time and space can run low simultaneously, making for a particularly stressful harvest. Luckily, at FS Construction Services, we have experts who are able to work on all manner of projects, big or small, no matter the time crunch they’re facing.

This past August, our Grain Systems expert Nathan Koester oversaw the construction of a new Sukup grain bin for a client who needed it as soon as possible. Over the span of 10 days, FS Construction Services built a 48 ft. diameter, 7-ring tall bin with a capacity of 40,000 bushels. Additionally, we added wrap-around stairs for easy roof access, an OPI temp/moisture cable system, a gravity spreader, an 8” power sweep, and a dual centrifugal fan with an ultralow temp burner for low temp drying.

Completed on August 20th, this project was finished just in time for our client to make full use of the new space and new equipment. Sukup’s grain bin and grain drying technology makes it easier than ever to produce evenly dried, safely stored grain, which is one of the many reasons we have enjoyed a partnership with them for so long.
