What are grain silos and how do they store perishable materials?
 
Grain silos are commonly constructed of poured in place concrete or galvanized steel. Concrete is the construction material of choice, as it provides additional strength and safety benefits vs. steel. Grain silos are constructed to be sealed airtight, reducing the risk of spoilage. A removable silo base allows for the easy retrieval and removal of the stored materials whether the silo is used for flour or other grain products. For more details, visit Grain Silos.
