Grain elevators implement a number of safety mechanisms in order to prevent dangerous buildup of explosive grain dust inside their facilities. One of the most important includes an open bottom conveyor belt system, whereby grain dust (and occasional grain cargo) is allowed to freely fall to the ground from overhead conveyor lines. This keeps workers safe and wildlife abundant!
