an iceberg, there's a lot you don't see when looking at a Harvestore structure.
Manufacturer specifications call for a massive concrete footing that meets
U.S., Canada, and local building requirements. Firmly attached to this
base is the first ring of sheets. Then more concrete is placed inside
the base sheets. Together this creates a unitized, engineered base for
building. The steel unloader trough is a vital part of this quality foundation.
Accurate trough installation means consistent and stable unloader operation.
GLASS FUSED TO STEEL CONSTRUCTION
glass is fused to both sides of the steel sheets to create a coating that
is hard, durable and long lasting. This glass coating is formulated to
resist acids from fermented feeds. The smoothness of the glass allows
feed to slide down easily. Sheet thicknesses are designed to meet the
varying stress requirements from top to bottom.
strength structural grade bolts are designed to handle specific joint
stress loads. The acid-resistant bolt heads are located inside the structure.
The smooth, rounded cap offers little resistance to the downward movement
FROM THE TOP DOWN
the foundation is completed, the first ring of sheets is assembled and
the roof is completed. Then, using special jacks, the roof is raised high
enough to put on the second ring of sheets. The entire assembly is again
raised as each successive ring of sheets is bolted into place. By following
manufacturer guidelines, assembly can be fast, safe and efficient. NOTE:
These guidelines are continually revised to incorporate important assembly
and safety techniques. Only authorized Engineered Storage Products dealers
have direct access to these current specifications.

models can be made taller to increase capacity as your production requirements
grow. To add the new rings of sheets, the structure is raised on jacks
and the new sheets are added near the bottom. Also, a Harvestore structure
can be taken down and moved. NOTE: Modifications of any kind must be done
to manufacturer specifications by an authorized Engineered Storage Products
dealer. Only he has direct access to the current erection procedures,
and the current factory specified parts and equipment to do the job right.
PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE
regulate excessive build up of fermentation gases when pressure exceeds
the capacity of the breather bags. When the internal breather bags are
empty, the pressure relief valve allows gas out. After the breather bags
have been filled, the pressure relief valve may allow air in.
unloader access door has a safety disconnect system. It provides for positive
disconnect of power to the unloader control when the structure's unloader
access door is removed. Similar systems are available for older unloaders
manufactured by AOSESPC.
