Backed by Independent Research

The Kondinin Group named Allied Grain Systems as one of only a few suppliers to pass stringent testing on both the flat bottom and cone-based silos, out of a total of 21 manufacturers in an independent study held in 2015.

Project engineers inspected the silos on-farm, each one owned by a grower for less than 12 months and empty at the time of the review. The analysis of each silo included assessing the condition of a detailed list of silo components, as well as a pressure simulation to test the seals.
