Specialist cleaning and maintenance services for Silo, Tank, Bin, Vat, Vessel, Hopper and Confined Space assets and plant…
Our dedicated silo and tank cleaning teams are fully trained in Confined Space entry operations. Our multi-disciplined technicians are also highly experienced and certified in a variety of other specialist access methods including suspended access and rope access systems.
Combining these methods together allows for greater flexibility when undertaking works within confined space and restricted area assets and plant. These systems also have a minimal site footprint, reducing the impact on your site operations.
Completely blocked or plugged product occurs when material solidifies or condenses causing a small bridge stopping product being able to flow. This is commonly caused by condensation build-up or even water ingress within the silo, can also be caused where internal scale collapses and forms a plug.
When material or product sticks or compacts to the sides of the silo it is referred to as banking or scale. Left untreated this can develop significantly resulting in reduced silo capacity and lead to further problems with notable impacts on productivity and costs. Collapse of scale / banked material can also cause plugging blockages.
This issue is caused where solidified and compacted product causes large arches and voids in the silo leading to loss of material flow and blockages. This renders the silo unsuitable for use until the problem is rectified usually by full product removal.
Tunnelling or Rat Hole within a silo allows only a small amount of product to make it through to the production line. Generally caused by moisture contaminated product resulting in reduced flow. Can also be a severe consequence of untreated scale / banking.
Routine inspections of the external silo structure, supporting steelwork and any installed access ladders or systems is vital to maintaining the proper functioning of your silo assets.
We offer a complete silo inspection and maintenance service designed to spot any potential issues early on, assisting you in preventative maintenance planning.
External coating systems will naturally deteriorate over time, sometimes this is accelerated due to local environmental conditions. Breakdown of the protective coating system can lead to corrosion of the silo structure.
Our paint and protective coatings services are a cost-effective solution for maintaining silo assets and plant.
