Monolithic Domes For Cold Storage CALAMCO — These two domes, which are each 230 feet in diameter and 115 feet high, were built for the California Ammonia Co. (CALAMCO). Each dome is big enough to hold 600 semi-truck loads of apples. Resistant to Change — The massive thermal capacity of this structure is highly resistant to change in temperature. A Monolithic Dome cold storage uses half the cooling equipment and will keep an even temperature regardless of the outside weather. Product Stacking — Product stacking inside a Dome allows for a circular aisle along the inside perimeter of the Dome, as well as a center aisle. This allows for better utilization of space and travel time to load and retrieve product is minimal for both automated and manual retrieval. Crane — In the center of each dome sits a 100-foot-tall cooling tower that doubles as the pivot point for a large, computer controlled crane. This crane automatically places and removes large containers that hold 26 bins of apples. Each container weighs over 13 tons.
