What you may not know:

After years of use, many bins develop poor foundations. Under your bin floor, fines and other debris build up, in some cases as deep as the floor itself.

The more grain under your floor in the plenum chamber, the more your bin is resisting airflow, slowing down your drying process.

5 Steps to the Retro-fit Process:

1. CONTACT A CMC REPRESENTATIVE

sealantOnce in contact with CMC, a retro-fit checklist will be completed. This is a list of questions we will work through designed to pin-point areas needed to prep your bin and get ready for bin conversion. Call us today to get on our schedule. We can turn around retros fast with all products on hand.

2. REMOVAL OF YOUR OLD BIN FLOOR

CMC will remove your old bin floor or aeration duct and clean out all remaining debris. Once clean, we check over the concrete foundation to ensure it is in good condition before sealing the inside of the bin. The bin is sealed with our Bin and Building sealant, creating a weather-tight seal around your bin.

3. INSTALLATION OF KEHO AIR PUMPS & ROOF VENTS

Fan and roof vents are added to your bin. The number of fans and vents are dependent on the diameter and height of your bin.
