Don’t lie, no one likes to pull up to the bin and realize they have to clean it out before they can get a full load. Here to help is the new GSI 30-foot diameter Z-Series Bins with Flexwave Technology. This new technology is now available from its dealer network, offering greater efficiency and improved safety for the 2019 harvest season. The new model allows up to 21 rings of 4-inch corrugation with up to 47,000 bushels of storage capacity.
Z-Series Bins offer a revolutionary bin cleanout system, utilizing large liners that alternately inflate and deflate to gently remove residual grain after a bin is emptied (see video to see exactly how it works). This first-of-its-kind technology provides over 99% cleanout, eliminating the labor intensive and potentially dangerous current practice of farmers entering a bin to sweep or shovel out remaining grain.
Z-Series Bins, introduced last fall in an initial 24-foot diameter model, are a higher-capacity and more cost-effective alternative for similar-sized hopper tanks with cone bottoms. GSI also plans a 36-foot Z-Series Bin allowing up to 21 rings with 68,000 bushels of storage capacity that will be available from dealers during the fourth quarter of this year.
The liners are constructed of durable, commercial-grade material designed to last over 30 years under normal conditions. In addition, they can easily be repaired in case of accidental puncture with a simple glue patch because of the system’s low-pressure operation, which is more gentle on grain than traditional options, protecting grain quality and profits.
