Feed mills have been a valuable source for farmers since the late 19th century and include some of the largest companies in America including Cargill and Purina. They are vital for getting the right nutrients blended into a feed product so that farmers can give their cows the best nutrients.
Hanson Silo provides our bunker panels to install into feed mills to keep products separated. The Hanson Silo bunker system is a natural fit for feed mills all across the country because it provides a strength, flexibility, and speed that can’t be matched.
Hanson Bunker Panels have been pre-engineered to take a weight of even the heaviest feed products, up to 130 lbs. per cu ft. We can achieve this by having the strongest mix on the market,typically double what most poured walls come in at. We also have the heaviest rebar and mesh schedule in the industry and can add in rebar dowel splicers to the toe and tie the panels directly to the slab preventing slide.
The bunker panels come in 7 different heights meaning that you don’t have to pay for extra concrete in the air that will never have product against it.
Being that the panels are portable, you can change bay sizing, add on, or trade up to larger panels as your needs change. The walls hold their value over long periods of time because of the strength and durability in which they are made.
Most installations can be completed in a matter of days. We have installed our panels at feed mills with a capacity of over 40,000 tons in 4 days. If you have an existing building the panels can be set on top of your existing concrete and special angle iron slide prevention can be installed that will prevent movement.
With the strength of the panels, you can build building directly on top and save your self time and money with installation. We have customers that have put stick built, post frame, hoop, and steel building up depending on your building preference. Hanson has experience working with some of the premier building contractors in the country and have sent panels to California, Texas, North Carolina, Maryland, and others because we offer a quality that can’t be matched.
