USA Silo Service provides cleaning and maintenance services that help prevent future emergencies and keep your silo  functioning as it should to save you money and help you keep to production goals. Proper care of your fluidizing equipment, including air pads/air pad diffusers, air stones and air slides, is a crucial part of necessary silo maintenance. If your airflow unit shows signs of wear, it's time to request a quote to ensure the material flow of your stored dry solids is optimized.
 
Whatever the issue, we will ensure the reliable flow and discharge of materials, prohibiting any issues of blockage or compacting. When you contact us for help, we consider all aspects of your situation, including the types of materials stored, the condition of your silo and the difficulties you may be facing to determine the best course of action for your airflow needs. No matter the issue, we will get your silo performing at 100% again.

There are numerous benefits to keeping up with routine silo cleanings. Regular silo cleaning ensures efficient operation and can help limit potential liabilities. Regular cleanings also increase your silo's usable lifespan, minimize big-ticket repairs, and help you avoid more costly cleaning expenses that can result from emergency situations.
 
Hung up, clogged or slow running silos are a problem that will interfere with efficiency and profitability. In addition, material buildup deters the silo from reaching its full capacity. We have seen many cases where material buildup and blockages make it so a silo or silos can only store roughly half of the original capacity. Once a silo begins to lose flow, this accelerates the buildup over time and can lead to additional blockages. Therefore, the silo must be cleaned professionally if material buildup or other issues are visible.
 

Benefits of Routine Silo Cleaning

  • Safety - A clean silo is the first step in protecting your stored materials, your silo's structural integrity, and your workers.
  • Savings - Removing material buildup returns your silo to the original, full capacity, helps you recover lost material that can be sold, and helps you stick to production schedules.
  • Scheduling - Sticking with a routine cleaning schedule lets you plan around your peak seasons and find a time that works best for you and minimizes downtime.

When your silo suffers from built-up debris, your operations can be slowed or stopped and your storage capacity greatly reduced. Build-up also leads to poor material flow characteristics that can lead to increased strain on silo walls and cause cracking and other damage that can result in structural failure. Yet, removing material build-up through professional silo cleaning does more than protect your silo and save you money long-term. It can also pay for itself or even put money back in your pocket.
 
Removing your material build-up allows you to recover lost material that can then be sold. USA Silos removes debris and relocates it during the silo cleaning process through our high-performance industrial vacuum truck services. We then assess recovered material for usability and handle it accordingly. As a result, useable materials can be sold while lost materials are properly disposed of by us. This lets you reap savings through recovered stagnant material that was previously written off.
 
Once professionally cleaned, silos can return to running at full, original capacity, allowing maximum efficiency and leading to more consistent production schedules with no unplanned downtime. In short, the benefits of a professional cleaning every year far outweigh the initial costs.
 
Whether you have bridging, caking or plugging of any stored material, it’s essential to contact silo cleaning company USA Silo Service, a division of the Marietta Group, which includes Marietta Silos and Marietta Inspection Services, to have the build-up removed quickly. Our silo cleaning techniques utilize The Boss proprietary cleaning system, which delivers maximum cleaning efficiency in a safe environment while minimizing downtime and delivering cost savings to the customer.
