SCAFCO’s farm bins are perfect for on-farm applications ranging from 12’ to 60’ in diameter (3.66 m to 18.29 m) with capacities up to 98,332 bushels (2,676 MT).
SCAFCO’s farm bins provide an exceptionally strong storage solution by using high-quality galvanized steel wall sheets and corrugated roof panels manufactured from G-115 coated steel (min. 350gr/m2 zinc). Farm bins are equipped with walk in doors and can be supplied with handling equipment and accessories to meet any need.
Full range of accesories
Available on all bins, SCAFCO’s walk in door opens to 28″ x 60″ (711 mm x 1524 mm). This door includes a welded frame, reinforced outer door panel and three hinged inner flaps with positive locking bars. Doors bolt into place easily with corrugated welded door jambs. A heavy-duty version is available for all bins.
Complete Ladder System
SCAFCO provides a complete ladder system inside and outside the bin with safety cages and rest platforms.
All SCAFCO grain bins are furnished with heat-treated SAE grade 8.2 (equivalent to DIN 10.9) bolts and JS1000 corrosion resistant coating over zinc. Our high strength bolts will meet and exceed 1000 hours to corrosion in a salt spray test compared to other bin manufacturers that use zinc dichromate coated bolts that only meet or exceed 108 hours.
All bins 12’ (3.66 m) diameter and larger feature safe and convenient roof hatches. Our hatches open to the right rather than uphill on the roof, facilitating safer entry and egress from the bin. The inside dimension measures 18” x 30” (460 mm x 760 mm). The hatch is positioned adjacent to the roof ladder cleats or roof stairs and meets or exceeds emerging standards previously unaddressed in current grain bin designs. SCAFCO hatches are weather-tight and factory installed with a lockable latch.
Cap and Rib Roof Panels
SCAFCO’s one piece deep-rib corrugated roof panels offer outstanding load-carrying capabilities, providing durability under heavy snow, ice loads and other extreme weather conditions. Roofs bolt together rapidly in the field with each roof panel securely fastened to wall panels with steel clips. Heavy-duty 3 ¼ (82 mm) high box-ribs provide strength and rigidity for each roof panel. Roofs have either 24 or 36 corrugated roof panels (depending upon bin diameter) and a weather-tight closure.
Roof Ladder Cleats
SCAFCO roof ladder cleats are galvanized angles bolted to roof panels, allowing easy access to the inspection hatch and peak cap. SCAFCO’s roof cleats are standard for grain bins ranging from 12’ to 42’ in diameter (3.66 m to 12.80 m).
SCAFCO’s unique 42 ⅔” high (1.08 m) galvanized steel sheets have a 2 ⅔” pitch and ½” (67.7 mm x 12.7 mm) deep corrugation that is substantially stronger than the competitors’ standard 4″(102 mm) pitch corrugation. Sheets are precision roll formed from high yield strength steel and are pre punched in a single stroke operation, guaranteeing accurate hole alignment and uniform fit.
