Basement Insert

The Lowry Basement Insert is a good solution for large-volume or commercial operations, and when used in conjunction with a conveyor system a 1,000 bushel or larger pit can be unloaded considerably faster than a conventional pit, and with less potential damage to grain (an important factor when working with seed-quality grains). The open basement setup allows for easy access to the conveyor for maintenance.

Safety Concern: Dust Control at the Grain Receiving Station
Striving to meet the needs of large grain-handling operations, Lowry Manufacturing has designed effective dust-handling equipment for basement insert facilities. 
The problem: Operators voiced concern that when unloading grain into drive-over receiving stations, dust and other particles generated during that process filled the air and collected on equipment and building fixtures.
The solution: The Lowry Manufacturing Co. design team developed a dust-collection system that can be built into a basement insert to remove particulate-filled air.  The system has undergone extensive engineering to ensure that the proper volume of air is pulled from the basement insert - resulting not only in a cleaner, but a much safer environment. The design also allows for reintroduction of captured particles back into the grain stream. Dust control is a big concern for grain operations because state and/or federal guidelines now mandate that the area in and around a grain-handling facility must maintain acceptible air-quality standards. Systems designed by Lowry Manufacturing that are already in operation have been thoroughly tested and have proven to resolve those issues.
