Facility Design: Maximizing Efficiently and Throughput

Grain elevator facilities have grown and evolved from simple storage sites to large, high-throughput, and highly automated processing plants. This trend is driven by the consolidation of country elevators due in part to local economic conditions and changing railroad regulations. Increased demand for grain storage space, especially as yearly harvests increase, is another reason for this growth.

This session focuses on facility design as it relates to overall efficiency and throughput. Learn how to design and prioritize short- and long-term plans for grain facilities to meet ever-changing industry demands.
