The silo is a specially shaped and designed warehouse for dry mixtures such as: flour, cement, animal feed, cereals and other bulk products. The useful volume of the silo is used for storage of bulk materials in the food, chemical, construction, livestock and agricultural industries.
The reduction of the useful volume of the reservoir and the development of bacterial colonies in the sediments is a natural consequence with the formation of „stone“ deposits. In cases with cement warehouses, parts of the cement stone can clog the mouth of the silo cone, drastically slow down the work and the unloading process must be stopped.
Industrial climbers clean the inner walls of the silo using equipment and by hand.
External and internal cleaning of the silo is necessary:
● to control the grain storage method
● prevention of bacterial contamination
● as well as maintaining sanitary standards and regulations
Rehabilitation of silo
The silo is one of the most important buildings in the food industry. It is intended for storage and maintenance of grain, so the temperature and humidity level inside its cells and pipelines must comply with certain, very strict requirements. However, vertical and horizontal loads during operation, environmental influences and other negative factors can loosen the joints, deform the screw joints and cause a reduction in seam pressure. Of course, all these damages must be repaired in time in order for the exploitation of the silo (cell) to be continuous.
These are some of the procedures we most often perform on silos:
● internal repair and cleaning of silo buildings
● sealing seams
● roof repair
● restoration of galvanized surfaces
● Rehabilitation of reinforced concrete pillars
● painting of structures and metal structures
When repairing, we strictly adhere to all norms and requirements, and we also use high-quality materials and tools, so that we can guarantee the high quality of each phase of work.
