Roof System

 

UNMATCHED ROOF SYSTEM

Behlen roofs are manufacturer certified to withstand 40 lbs./sq. ft. ground snow load. Gentle 30° roof pitch allows for optimum filling.

Roof panels are 3-1/2" high with four stair steps on both sides. This provides outstanding strength against snow, wind, and other loads. Roof panels are roll-formed for a precision fit.

ROOF DESIGNED WITH UNIQUE FEATURES

Continuous angle connectors at the eave are superior to clip systems and provide the option of an open or closed eave.

 

 
 STIFF-roof2

Support System

UNIQUELY DESIGNED WALL SYSTEMS

The sidewall contains four rows of high-strength 3/8" (grade 8.2) bolts per vertical seam which means extra strength and rigidity.

Unique trapezoidal wall panels have been computerized to provide outstanding strength. Their unique design permits bolting of flat surface to flat surface for a tighter, more waterproof connection.

 

 HOPPER-wall4

 

STRUCTURAL I-BEAMS

PROVIDES THE BACKBONE FOR THE SUPPORT SYSTEM

Stiffeners fasten to ridge compression members directly above the sturdy I-beam legs. These legs are secured by a heavy X-bracing system. This configuration is one of the strongest available.

 

HOPPER-wall1

 

STIFFENERS

OFFER EXCEPTIONAL LOAD CARRYING CAPABILITIES

Superior design of bearing plate between stiffeners assures a continuous vertical load transfer with a simple bolted conneciton. Strong galvanized, hat-shaped wall stiffeners provide excellent resistance to vertical grain loads and wind.

COMPRESSION BEAMS

MOST CRITICAL AREA OF ANY HOPPER TANK

Behlen commercial hoppers are equipped with massive, precision welded beams to provide a secure connection between the wall sheets, structural legs, and hopper panels. These compression members have been designed to rigorous standards to ensure a lifetime of trouble-free operation.

TYPICAL GRAIN DENSITIES:

  • Wheat approximately 50 lbs/ft.3 (800kg/m3)
  • Corn approximately 45 lbs/ft.3 (720kg/m3)
  • Rice approximately 36 lbs/ft.3 (580kg/m3)
Behlen commercial hopper tanks are externally stiffened with two stiffener columns per sidewall sheet to the eave and have a one ring access door located in the second ring from the base of the tank.
Behlen hopper tanks are designed for the storage of grain and similar free-flowing materials weighting up to 50 lbs./ft3 (800kg/m3). All capacities are based on 28° angle of repose. Bushel and metric tonnage capacity includes 6% compaction.
