BarnWorld.com, the online mega-store for livestock supplies like cattle guards and hay feeders, has expanded its already extensive selection to include a line of polyethylene plastic products.

The new large selection expands the wide range of farm and ranch supplies including bulk grain bins, lick feeders, mineral feeders, calf nurseries, and feeders.

The calf nursery line is designed with superior ventilation to separate calves, promote healthy lung growth, prevent disease and allow the calf to develop to its fullest potential.

“BarnWorld.com is always looking for better, animal-friendly products and suppliers to increase the selection available to customers,” said Rob Moore, owner of Barn World. “Environmentally friendly, polyethylene products are the future of livestock supplies.”

“Greater selection helps customers get exactly what they need at a fair price. We are always available by phone to help customers choose the right size bulk grain bins, hay feeders, mineral feeders, and cattle guards for the type of livestock they are working with.”

Polyethylene plastic is a great choice for livestock items. The material is impact resistant and can withstand both temperature extremes and corrosive chemicals. Polyethylene has an easy-to-clean, slippery surface and can be recycled. Products are mostly one piece with no sharp edges or seams to injure livestock. Polyethylene is also lightweight, making products easier to move and less expensive to ship.

The polyurethane bulk grain bins are particularly well-suited to high moisture materials like corn and soybeans. end_mark

Grain Bins from Barn World

Barn World now carries a large selection of Poly Grain Bins.

Poly Grain Bins are a fantastic feed bin design and are perfect for handling high moisture soybeans, corn, and granular materials. These feed bins are polyethylene bins constructed with high-density polyethylene so they won’t corrode or rust. and will always be attractive and clean. 

Grain Bin Description

The interior surface is a very smooth two-piece construction that reduces bridging. There are no rivets and grain-clogging seams to contend with. The translucent polyethylene allows you to visually check the material line from the outside.

All of our plastic grain bins have a 22″ top opening with a hinged, vented filler cap and a pull rope that allows ground control for filling.

Feed Bin Collars

There are three different transition collars available for the slide valves– 90°, 45°, and 30° angles. (See Accessories on page 18.) The new style collar allows easier attachment to the bottom cone with little or no cutting necessary. Our slides feature a galvanized plate and guide system. Our auger boots will attach to any of our slide valves and handle 4″ or 6″ augers. The auger boots have a cleanout access cover.

The poly grain bins have a 16″ hole in the bottom cone and come in a variety of sizes:

All of the plastic grain bins at Barn World have a sturdy ladder with a slip guard. It is braced securely to the top of the tank near the filler cap.

All hardware is supplied and the erection time is one-third of steel bins. The top cone section bolts to the bottom and then the legs are assembled before standing up.

Frames have a baked-on polyester powder coat finish that resists corrosion.

It is recommended that you use a concrete pad at least 5 1/2″ thick for our 4.5 ton thru 8.5-ton units. The foundation needs to be able to support not only the load in the bin but also high winds when the weather gets gusty.

Please visit BarnWorld today and change out not only the bins, but the wide variety of farm supplies, ranch supplies, and equestrian supplies made by American manufacturers. Our best-selling items are hay feeders, cattle guards, feed bins, saddle pads, mineral feeders, livestock scales, and many livestock supplies.

Grain bins provide efficient efficient management and storage for all types of feed and other loose materials. The heavy-duty construction protects the elements in rodents alike.

These are high-capacity bins that are commonly found throughout the United States. They offer large storage capacities and heavy-duty construction for use almost anywhere.

Barn World has a large selection of both metal grain bins and poly in a variety of sizes. Whether you need 108-bushel capacity or 975, there is one for you!

grain bins in metal and poly material

Metal Bulk Feed Bin Design

These heavy-duty steel grain bins are built to hold High capacities of loose material outdoors year-round. It stores and protects from the elements, pests, and rodents alike.

Below is a partial diagram of an assembled bin for review. Note the steel wall seams have overlap drip guards and won’t let water into the bin. This design culminates in a 16″ diameter opening at the bottom of the hopper sections.

This allows a multitude of attachments such as manual slide valves and motorized augers for unloading.

Corrugation

The waving bends in the steel walls are there to create additional vertical strength. The walls have a 4″ wide corrugation that adds an estimated  25% increase in strength over a wall without corrugation. The corrugation also creates a release point for free-flowing. The waves of the Steal reduce the downward resistance on stored material and help reduce any bridging or ‘hanging up on the interior of the walls.

The G-90 Steel

G-90 is a designation for the finish that coats the steel. It refers to the amount of zinc that remains on the material after a hot dip in zinc. The 90 means that there is a minimum of .90 oz. of zinc per square foot. This provides excellent protection from corrosion and rust and allows the bins to be used exclusively outdoors, year-round.

Lids

Top lid that can be controlled while standing on the ground via a lever. Simply pull the lever, and it opens can you fill the bin without ever leaving the ground.

grain bin lid open on topThe lids have a vent built into them to release hot air and moisture that may build up inside.

Assembly

The bins are built by assembling them on their sides and then standing upright. A cement pad is used to anchor the legs to the ground to prevent tipping in high winds when empty.

Poly Grain Bins Have Some Advantages over Metal Bins

Poly Bulk Grain Bins have a lot of advantages over the traditional metal grain bin designs. Consider a poly den when making your next purchase decision.


metal grain bins  large poly grain bin

Bulk grain storage is a necessity when working with large quantities of feed. Traditional metal grain bins been around for decades and are traditionally thought of as the standard in the industry. New polyethylene materials have made the plastic grain bin design a stout competitor to metal.

Benefits of a Poly Grain Bin

Large poly grain bins are a great choice for handling high moisture materials such as soybeans and corn. The high density polyethylene is translucent so unlike its metal counterpart, you may see the levels remaining in the bin at a quick glance.

The walls are created with a UV treated, high density material that is 3/16 inches thick. It will never corrode and is impervious to rusting you can expect long life out of these bins.

The simple assembly is also major improvement over the metal grain bin design. Typically, the metal bins are made up of corrugated sheets of steel that require many nuts and bolts to assemble. This poly design includes one upper and lower section that bolt together in the middle. It’s like putting one ice cream cone on top of another and makes assembly quick and easy.

Assembled Grain Bin

This design also creates a smooth interior wall all the way to the hopper which helps reduce bridging. The lack of bolts coming through to the interior of the bin eliminates any flow issues.

Grain Bin Options

These large bins are of course available with an optional auger system is a mechanical means of unloading is required. The auger attaches to a collar and unloading boot just like the metal bins. Auger lengths go all the way up to 6 inches in diameter and a maximum of 21 feet in length.

They come standard with a ladder, a ground operated bin lid and the choice of manual slide valves if desired.
