Why Silo Cleaning Is So Important
Posted by Dennis Blauser, July 14, 2021
Silo cleaning is an essential part of silo ownership. It also saves you money and maximizes production and profit. Avoiding compaction and hydration of material through regular emptying and cleaning keeps your silo in proper working order. When stored material becomes too compacted, it must be removed by a professional cleaning company. An efficiently working silo helps you meet production goals.
 
By removing material buildup, silos are returned to their original storage capacity, and material flow issues that can slow down production are corrected. Clogged or slow running silos are a problem that will interfere with efficiency and profitability. Material buildup deters the silo from reaching its full capacity. Once a silo begins to lose flow, this accelerates the buildup over time and can lead to additional blockages. Removing this buildup can also allow you to recover lost material. Our professional team maximizes the cost-effectiveness of your silo cleaning operations by supplying the necessary industrial vacuum truck services to meet the requirements of your situation.
 

The Boss - Silo Cleaning Techniques

Professional silo cleaning companies typically use a remote, dry cleaning system to remove stubborn material buildup. The most powerful system available in the U.S. is a unique clean-out head, The Boss, proprietary to USA Silo Service that is 65% more powerful than other pneumatic systems. By removing more material faster and more efficiently than any other clean-out method, including the whip system, The Boss accelerates the cleaning process. This minimizes downtime and time spent on-site, providing immediate cost savings.
 
The Boss is a unique clean-out head designed to accommodate variable attachments selected by our field crews to match the type of material being removed. Our silo cleaning technique includes operating in a systematic pattern within the silo to remove the toughest buildups.
 

The Takeaway

Regularly cleaning your silo can help keep it operating efficiently and limit potential liabilities. Regular cleanings also increase your silo's usable lifespan, minimize big-ticket repairs, and avoid more costly cleaning expenses. In addition, professional silo cleaning saves you time and money by removing buildup and recovering lost material.
