Cement Storage Silos

Washington State University Libraries

Field Value
Title Cement Storage Silos
Description About 48,000 car loads of bulk cement, made from almost 3 million tons of limestone, were stored in these 5,200 barrel silos, and then blended in the two at the right. By noting the deflection of the bottom of these tanks, on a calibrated scale, it was possible to determine a very close approximation of the quantity of material stored in each. The 400 barrels of per hour cement pump which operated on the 11 inch pipe line to the East and West mixing plants was brought here from Boulder Dam.... Gravity driven cement storage facilities used to feed the mixing plant.
