Specialist Cement Silo Cleaning Services across Scotland
Evaporation and moisture build up in a cement silo can cause the powder stored within the silo to harden around the interior walls of the silo.
The scheduled cleaning of cement silos is required to protect the silo from structural damage caused by clumping on the inside walls. The build up of concrete material can change the pressure within the silo, causing off-centre loading which can damage the silo.
Because concrete hardens when moist, the clumping effect within a concrete silo can cause knock on effects with pipes in the storage vessel.
Cement Silo Cleaning
To clean a concrete silo, we need to the silo to be emptied of as much of the original material as possible. We will then conduct an initial inspection of the silo to determine safe entry points and the safety of the silo itself.
