I'm curious whether or not real-life grain silos can hold more than one type of grain. Can dividers be placed inside to keep the different types of grain separate, or do you need a silo for each type of grain you wish to store?
Thanks for the reply, Drmattymd. That's what I thought, but wasn't sure. Checking manufacturers of grain silos, I see them mention "number of rings," which I thought meant dividers as they don't explain what that means. So what does "number of rings" mean for grain silos? Here's an example from GSI's website: http://www.grainsystems.com/products/st ... -bins.html.
After reading a b r o c h u r e for GSI's grain bins, I found out "number of rings" refers to the number of wind rings which are placed around the outside of a grain silo, offering structural strength for increased load capacity.
Actually the wind rings is something different. The bin is consists of sheets of arced metal approximately 3' wide, fastened together to form a circle. This is a ring. Then another ring can be formed and attached above the original or technically below it as they are usually built from the roof down. They start with the first ring and roof, then jack it up and add another ring, then repeat until its done.
