Curvco corn and grain storage systems allow for fast construction and are perfectly suited to protect your valuable crops. The building can be erected on a flat concrete pad or elevated on a wall. Aeration tubes attached to exterior fans can easily be run across the building’s floor to ventilate the crops. This prevents excessive moisture which can cause mold and they also help dissipate any methane. Grain is easily loaded through the top of the building using an auger conveyor for uniform distribution. Many customers install a low-cost removable bulkhead at the door opening for grain retention at the door opening.
