Bulk Feed Tanks

Cumberland is a division of The GSI Group, lnc., the world’s largest manufacturer of corrugated, galvanized steel storage tanks (from the smallest feed tanks to massive 100 feet/31 meters tall, 15,000+ ton capacity commercial giants). Every component is made from the finest raw materials available. Every stage of the forming process, from corrugation to die-cut shaping to precision finishing, is done under one roof and under our direct control and supervision.

40′ roofs provide additional strength and capacity. (Shown with optional pneumatic fill kit.

Bin Roof

Cumberland offers your choice of a 30’or 40′ bin roof to adapt to any
application. Roof panels are precision manufactured using die-form tooling to provide consistent quality. Both 30’and 40′ roof feature reinforcing ribs at each roof seam for added strength and rigidity.

Hopper Bottoms with Drip Lip

Tank hoppers are available in three slopes: 45’for dry, free flowing
grains and 60′ or 67′ for harder flowing materials. The “eave”, the upper edge where the hopper is joined to the sidewall, is specially die-formed to conform to the shape of the sidewall corrugation (See A.). Most other manufacturers
depend on crimping and bolt pressure to force the connection (See B.)…which produces corrosion-prone distortion and “dimpling” of the sidewall. Cumberland die-formed eave provides a much tighter seal and smoother flow of material.

Factory Formed Fill kits

Another Cumberland exclusive is the pre-punched, extruded lip roof panel provided for the optional pneumatic fill-kit. Pre-punching eliminates the inconvenience and difficulty of field-cutting the openings for the fill and
exhaust tubes, and insures secure, moisture-proof seals.

Secure Acces

Cumberland feed tanks feature the exclusive, patented “Auto-Lock” ground
control access system for opening, closing, and latching the fill cap safely
and easily from the ground.

Strength & Durability

High tensile steel sidewall sheets, with a. galvanized coating, provide outstanding strength and durability along with the 2- 2/3″ (68mm)wide by 112″ (13mm) deep corrugation and precision formed panel. Cumberland also provides solid, convenient access via a fully die-formed side ladder with dimpled non-skid rungs.

Flex Flo Delivery System

Metal boot will allow installation of up lo four lines in several direction

Heavy Duty Boots

Multiple outlet requirements can be easily handled by our 22″ (55.9cm) all metal boot. This boot, which can be fitted to any Cumberland feed bin, will allow installation of up to four feed lines in several directions at once. Cumberland 16″ (40.6cm) parabolic boot (available in straight drop or 30′ models) is made from the very latest in ultra high impact polypropylene for greater flexibility, dependability and durability. Cumberland clear boot allows producers to verify at a glance while driving by that feed is present in the bin. This heavy walled boot is injected molded from a specially formulated ultraviolet stabilized clear polycarbonate blend to provide years of trouble free service.

Cumberland Unloader

Designed to fit below the 16′ (406mm) plastic and 22″ (559 mm) metal boots, Cumberland standard
unloaders are available for 2.2″ (55mm), 3″ (75mm), 3.5″ (90mm), and 5″ (125mm) Flex-FlorM or 4″ and
6″ rigid auger systems. All Cumberland unloaders have a ultra high impact, polypropylene slide-gate above the auger to meter feed or serve as a complete shut off. Also, a convenient inspection/clean out plate, located on the side, is easily removed with two wing nuts. They also feature a heavy duty ball bearing for increased service life and reduced maintenance.

Extension Hopper

For applications requiring distances greater than the standard length of any given system, extension
hoppers are available that can expand the delivery
range to practically any distance and can provide
access at 90″ from the main line.

Tubing Blend

Cumberland polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tubing is mixed and
formed in our own facility to exacting standards under strict
quality control. Blending our own PVC allows us to formulate
the optimum compound for UV stabilization, strength, and
wear resistance.

Flex Flo Models

Both tubing and augers are available in four sizes and five models with capacities ranging from 15 lbs to 220 lbs./minute (6 8kg to 99.8k9/min.) Whether it’s ground feed, crumble feed mash, high moisture corn, shelled corn o
pellets, Cumberland has the equipment to handle it. For corn up lo 27% moisture
and other hard to flow materials the Flex-Flo High Roughage system  which incorporates d special combination of a 3″(75mm) auger in a 3-112″ (90mm) tube to reduce plugging.

Quality Auger

Cumberland augers are coiled in-house from high tensile steel The steel wire Cumberland uses is flattened prior to hardening, providing for a more consistent, higher quality product.

Specifications

Capacities for 6′-9′ (‘l .83m-2.75m) diameter tanks are calculated at 40 lbs. per cubic foot (640kg/cubic meter). Capacities for 12′ (3.55m) diameter tanks are calculated at 45 lbs. per cubic foot (720kglcubic meter). Bushel capacities for 6′-9’ (1.83m-2.75m) diameter tanks are calculated with no compaction and to full cubic
foot (meter) capacities. 6′ (1.83m), 7′ Q.llm) & 9′ (2.75m). Hopper Feed Tanks are designed for the storage of material having a density of no more than 40 lbs.
per cubic foot (S+OkgTcubic meter). i2′ (3.55m) Hopper Feed Tanks are designed for the storage of material having a density of no more than 45 lbs. per cubic foot
(720kg/cubic meter.
Warning: Cumberland hopper tanks are designed for free-flowing material only. Soybean meal, meat scraps and many other materials are not free-flowing and should not be stored in these tanks. Check with your material manufacturer or dealer to ascertain the flow ability of any material you intend to use. When in doubt about a specific material, please consult Cumberland’s engineering department for additional information. Some features shown are optional or are available only on certain models.
