Project Description

NEW RAIL LOADOUT STORAGE TOWER
1. Contractor/Engineer:  Todd & Sargent, Inc., Ames, Iowa
2. Client Data:  NEMCO is a major producer of durum flour to the New England market.  They are a subsidiary company of Italgrani Grain of St. Louis, Missouri.
3. Summary of Project Features
    • Our project consists of slipforming sixteen (16) new bulk loadout bins.
    • Eight (8) semolina bins at 75 tons/bin.
    • Eight (8) wheat midds bins at 95 tons/bin.
    • Total storage is 1,360 tons.
    • Installing concrete hoppers and constructing all related floors, platforms, and structural items over the existing railroad tracks.
    • Square slipformed bins were chosen over conventional round diameter steel bins because a greater number of bins were able to be constructed in a very compact area.
    • For installation purposes, the exterior walls of the loadout structure are of slipformed hollow core construction with the center core filled with 7” of insulation.
