Inside Dumping & Operation

The Hi-Arch Gambrel has a minimum 30′ clearance so that tractor-trailers can dump salt and other materials undercover throughout the full length of the building.

What benefits does this give you?

  • IT PREVENTS having to dump the salt in the yard and then push it in.
  • IT PREVENTS needing a conveyor to fill the building to capacity.
  • IT PREVENTS WEATHER EXPOSURE, and therefore: prevents lumps and crusts saves time since you don’t have to break up the salt reduces wear and tear on equipment caused by lumps
  • IT PREVENTS RUNOFF from outdoor piles
  • IT PREVENTS DAMAGE to groundwater, surface water, wells, soils, and vegetation
  • IT PREVENTS DOUBLE HANDLING since you don’t have to spend time moving salt from the yard to the building
  • IT PREVENTS DELAYS in serving your taxpayers since the material is stored dry and ready to go

And how do these benefits save you money?

  • YOU SAVE MAINTENANCE DOLLARS BY PREVENTING SPREADER JAMS. Outside dumping results in wet/frozen material which clogs your machinery repeatedly. This drives up your maintenance and repair costs.
  • YOU SAVE MORE PAYROLL DOLLARS BY PREVENTING DOWNTIME. You can eliminate hours spent breaking through frozen crusts, unclog spreaders, etc.
  • YOU SAVE CAPITAL, OPERATING, AND MAINTENANCE DOLLARS BY ELIMINATING CONVEYORS. Since you can dump directly inside, you don’t need an expensive conveyor to fill the building.
  • YOU SAVE LEGAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS – WHICH CAN BE ENORMOUS – BY PREVENTING RUNOFF. Environmental contamination by salt can lead to investigations, citations, lawsuits, and expensive efforts to compensate for and correct the problem. Preventing runoff can save you money and headaches — and it makes you a good neighbor, too.
