Walthers Cornerstone Series®
Corn is the main source of the starch that's converted into ethanol, and production facilities consume many carloads per day. Many ethanol plants keep about a 10-day corn supply on hand, all of which is stored in on-site concrete silos. A conveyor leg moves the corn from the unloading shed to the silos and a smaller conveyor sends it from storage to the processing center.
On your layout, the Corn Storage Silos and Elevators kit brings a landmark to your North American Ethanol complex. All plants need corn storage silos, and large plants may need several.
- Molded in gray and clear plastic
- Fits layouts from the 1980s to present
