The Z-Series Bin features a novel cleanout system GSI has named Flexwave. The technology employs a pair of large liners that alternately inflate and deflate to remove residual grain after a bin is emptied. This first-of-its-kind technology provides more than 99% cleanout, GSI says. The liners eliminate the laborious and often dangerous practice that brings farmers and their employees into their bins to sweep or shovel out any 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 claims.
GSI is planning a 36-foot Z-Series Bin allowing up to 21 rings with 68,000 bushels of storage capacity. It should be available from its dealers during the fourth quarter of this year.
