Skyland Grain

Vilas, CO

This is a great example of one of the many new facilities Habco has built. This facility includes a GSI steel bin, ground pile, truck receiving, truck loadout, and rail loadout. A 20,000 bph GSI drag conveyor transfers grain from the truck receiving pit to a 20,000 bph GSI receiving leg. Grain is then diverted either into the steel bin, or onto a 20,000 bph enclosed belt conveyor that takes the grain to be discharged at the center of the ground pile. The steel bin on this site is a 105′ dia. GSI steel bin with a capacity of over 730,000 bushels. Depending on grain type, the ground pile diameter can be between 200′ and 250′. A 10,000 bph GSI drag conveyor under the bin transfers grain to both truck and rail loadout. The ground pile is emptied through the receiving drag into the unload drag. Rail loadout clearance is achieved with a HABCO hinged and telescoping electric rail loadout spout.
