No one has more experience manufacturing grain storage systems than Westeel. We helped pioneer steel-sided grain storage back in the 1920s and today, as one of North America’s largest producers of grain bins and tanks, we continue to lead the industry in design innovation, quality and product selection. All our products are manufactured under the stringent requirements of ISO 9001, and we employ the latest in computerized design and production technology throughout the manufacturing process. The result is products of superior quality and long-term value – products that represent the finest in on-farm and commercial grain storage available.
For Superior Strength, Structural Integrity and Long-Term Durability, Westeel is the Answer
Choosing the right grain storage system for your operation demands not only a careful analysis of both your short and long term needs, but also an appreciation for the many factors that affect the overall product quality and functionality. At Westeel we pride ourselves on building grain storage products that are considered among the most innovative on the market today. Our new Wide-Corr Centurion series of grain bins and hopper tanks represent the latest in grain storage technology. They employ Westeel’s all-new upright stiffening system, which allows for a more efficient use of steel as well as the ability to maximize bin strength where load stress is greatest. This stiffening system can also be adapted to meet different load requirements of specific installations, as additional stiffening can be added near points of greater load, such as under catwalks. Finally, Centurion series grain bins and hopper tanks offer greater resistance to corrosion and the elements thanks to the use of thicker galvanization on the wall sheets.
Precision Engineered for Superior Strength
All commercial Wide-Corr Centurion flat bottom bins and hopper tanks are professionally engineered to provide optimum structural integrity from top to bottom. Our engineers have coaxed the maximum strength out of every component used to manufacture a Wide-Corr Centurion bin or hopper. Moreover, every commercial model has been designed to ensure it can withstand the extra stress caused by continuous use, extreme temperatures, high winds and heavy snow loads.
Computerized Manufacturing Process
Westeel employs a computer assisted manufacturing process to ensure precision cut sheets that assemble easily and form snug, weather-tight seals at the connection points. The result is a bin or tank that is easier to erect and provides superior protection for your grain.
Highly adaptable to a wide range of applications, Wide-Corr storage systems can be customized to your operation including features such as special discharge outlets, longer hopper legs and reinforced designs for higher catwalk support loads. Regardless of your specialized needs, there’s a Wide-Corr solution available.
Wide-Corr Centurion Storage Bins
Capacities: Storage Up To 674,370 Bushels
Wide-Corr Hopper Tanks
Capacities: Storage Up To 56,570 Bushels
Wide-Corr hoppers feature galvanized hopper plates which are supported by Westeel’s unique compression ring assembly for additional strength. This effectively transfers the bin load from the hopper onto the legs and into the bin foundation. A steel sealing strip is continuously welded to the compression ring assembly to ensure a moisture tight fit. Standard hopper features include caulking for all horizontal seams and a wide 14" discharge outlet. Larger discharges up to 22" are available as options for the ability to deliver rates up to 30,000 bu/hour. A 45˚ hopper cone is provided on all Series 15 to 24 hopper tanks, a 40˚ hopper cone for all Series 27 to 30 hopper tanks, and a 37˚ hopper cone for all Series 33 and 36 hopper tanks.
Full I-Beam Leg Support
For added strength and safety, Wide-Corr uses full I-Beam construction for the leg support system. Cross-bracing manufactured from steel threaded rods is used between every leg to eliminate twisting and increase the structural rigidity of the base. Extra support is provided by the exterior stiffeners which are connected to the legs so that the bin loads are transferred directly to the concrete foundation. All components in the base structure are pre-punched at the factory for easy assembly.
