While Skyway offers an extensive range of services, this article will focus specifically on their exceptional design and monitoring solutions, which are pivotal in the development of efficient grain storage systems.

Skyway Grain Systems takes pride in offering customized design services tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. This design process is driven by a deep understanding of the agriculture industry and the specific requirements of grain storage and handling. By leveraging the latest technologies and innovative design practices, Skyway ensures that every grain storage solution is optimized for durability, accessibility, and ease of use, thereby contributing to the long-term success and sustainability of the farming operation. Whether it's small family farms or large commercial feed mills, Skyway works closely with clients to develop grain storage solutions that not only maximize space and efficiency but also enhance the overall functionality of the storage facility

In addition to its design services, Skyway Grain Systems offers state-of-the-art monitoring solutions that empower farmers to maintain optimal control over their grain storage environments. Monitoring is crucial in ensuring the quality and safety of stored grain, as it enables the early detection of potential issues such as temperature fluctuations or moisture build-up, which can lead to spoilage or infestation.

At the forefront of Skyway's monitoring technology is the Bin-Sense Live system. This advanced solution provides immediate reports on moisture levels and hot spots within the grain bin, enabling early intervention before these issues escalate into significant problems. The system is remarkably user-friendly, offering real-time data accessible remotely from any location.

Key features include:

  • Solar and battery-powered units, eliminating the need for direct power connections.
  • Compatibility with most pre-installed cables, ensuring ease of integration into existing setups.
  • Comprehensive temperature and moisture sensing, with hourly updates on grain conditions.
  • Customizable text or email alerts and a grain level indicator, allowing for precise monitoring by yard, bin, and grain type.

Additionally, the Bin-Sense Fan Controller enhances the functionality of the Bin-Sense Live system by allowing remote control of aeration fans from your mobile or desktop device. This feature includes the ability to turn fans on or off, set timers, and monitor relative humidity at the fan intake, providing further control over the storage environment.

For smaller to medium-sized operations, the Bin-Sense Solo offers a mid-range monitoring solution with daily grain readings. This battery-powered system supports up to four temperature and/or moisture sensing cables per bin and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It comes with a one-year warranty, ensuring reliability and peace of mind.

The Bin-Sense Direct provides an on-site, handheld grain monitoring reader that connects directly to your smartphone via Bluetooth. This simple yet effective tool offers a touchscreen view of your stored grain's condition, making it easier than ever to monitor and manage your storage environment.

To complement these systems, Skyway also offers Bin-Sense Monitoring Cables, designed to accurately measure both temperature and moisture levels within the grain. These cables are suitable for various storage containers, including flat bottom, hopper bottom, and elevators, featuring an innovative swivel head design for easy installation and alignment.

With Skyway's monitoring solutions, you can rest assured that your grain storage needs are in capable hands.
