Seeing the picture below, it will be clear that some specialized equipment is needed
1. Receiving hopper with pre-cleaner; The harvested potatoes or onions come in tipper trucks or dumb carts. The product is dumped into the hopper, at the outlet of the hopper is a pre-cleaner. This pre-cleaner has vibrating bars to separate soil and other unwanted inclusions from the product.
2. Telescopic conveyor belts; Telescopic conveyor belts are needed, because the reception hopper cannot be moved all the time, but the product has to get at the correct location in the storage.
3. Piler; Is an elevator that con move up/down, left/right and forward/backward. It piles the product onto the product heap constantly moving not to form cones within the product. These product cones inside a heap of onions or potatoes will inhibit homogenous ventilation.

Really sophisticated storage facilities have this systems completely automated. By putting the GPS coordinates of the storage chamber into the system's computer and then the conveyor belts together with the piler move around autonomous and pile the bulk crop neatly and evenly spread in the storage chamber.
