11/11/2015: SCAFCO Grain Systems goes to school
A renewable fuel project
This is the Heyburn Elementary School in St Maries, Idaho, USA. The silo is a SCAFCO Grain Systems model 1203HBT. The school maintenance director reports that the silo is used to store wood pellets for a biomass boiler. The maximum capacity is in the range of 29 MT.

The wood pellets are received in bulk via a 20 MT walking floor trailer. The wood pellets are transferred into the silo utilising an inclined grain auger with a capacity in the range of 20 MT/hr. Pellet usage is in the range of 80-100 MT per year. 

Helping heat a hospital
With a little help from SCAFCO Grain Systems, an Oregon State USA hospital is saving on their energy costs.

They replaced one of their oil fired boilers with an economical wood pellet fueled boiler. The pellets that feed the boiler are stored in a SCAFCO Grain Systems hopper bottom silo.

Since the installation of the economically and environmentally friendly upgrade, the hospital's heating costs have been cut by two thirds.
