Ensuring Proper Grain Storage Protects a Nation’s Food Stability

Posted November 12, 2021 by Bartonfabs21

Barton Fabrications expands on why silo storage is a key solution in keeping grains safe
Food security remains a global concern affecting many nations. Many countries across the globe depend heavily on the proper preservation of their grains to ensure food stability. Grain-based foods are the staple food for most countries and it is often the type of food that tends to remain affordable to the poorest people in the country, preventing them from going without food. However, regardless of whether the staple food is rice, or maize or wheat, grains have several storing requirements to prevent them from becoming spoiled and not fit for human consumption.

“While the range of markets that we supply with our premium standard silo grain storage units is quite vast, food storage is one of the key areas where we make sure to adhere to all requirements and where our design team works endless hours to ensure a solution that will deliver on optimal results. Silos remain the most preferred way to store grains for extended periods. The ground space that our silos require is limited compared to the large storage capacity that every unit has to offer. Furthermore, our units also provide proper protection against the elements of nature. It keeps grains safe even from rodents as our silos are elevated from ground level and due to the tight-fitting closures, we use, these pests can't get access to the content of our units,” says the team of Barton Fabrications proudly of their more than 1, 000 units already installed across the globe.

This team also take exceptional care to ensure that the shape and the size of their silos prevent condensation on the inside of their units. In ambient conditions, condensation can form and this would be enough exposure to moisture for the grains to start to form mould or to clump. Mould releases all kinds of toxins into the grain, making it unfit for human consumption.

The team also expands on how they take their responsibility seriously to provide optimal storage solutions that will help their clients to ensure food safety and to prevent any financial losses due to poor storage conditions.

The silos that the team deliver ensure easy filling and emptying of the units. Each of these units can also easily become automated to reduce the need for labour even further. All these added features they add to their products help with cost savings and contributes to making grain and grain-based products more affordable to the masses.
