Make the Most of Planned Downtime
Posted by Dennis Blauser, December 21, 2023
While the end of the year is often chaotic, it's a good time to make sure silo maintenance services like restoration and repair are included in your facility production schedule. Repairing silo problems quickly, before they become an emergency, helps save money and can reduce or eliminate safety issues. Investing in professional silo inspections and restoration is a cost-effective solution, as it can lead to long-term savings, reduce liability, and minimize unplanned downtime which can result from silo failure if issues are not addressed quickly.
The potential repercussions of emergency silo problems can be devastating, ranging from unexpected downtime and loss of income to complete silo failure and even fatalities. Taking care of small problems quickly can help keep the cost of owning a silo to a minimum since major repairs, catastrophes, and structural issues require more money and time to fix and can cause downtime that was not planned.
Many silo repairs need design and engineering input. We boast restoration supervisors with more than 50 years of experience designing and building a restoration project right the first time. We make sure to trace the source of damage to the silo during any rehabilitation project and use those results to inform our design process to stop any future harm.
Mapping silo restoration services into periods of planned downtime is also a great way to keep costs low. Planning regular check-ups during the more moderate months can save you money by spotting potential issues early and lessening the amount of time you spend offline. Building silo restoration into temperate times of the year, like the spring and fall, tends to provide better working conditions for a variety of silo repairs. These ideal weather conditions can make a repair or restoration go more quickly - reducing the cost of labor and your downtime.
To reduce silo repair costs further, complete your silo inspection and silo restoration or silo repair in one mobilization with the Marietta Silos, or USA Silo Service, Mobile Inspection Trailer. Finishing small silo repairs at the same time as your silo inspection reduces additional unplanned downtime and additional trips necessary to get your silo back up and running.
