USA Silo Service can clean, inspect, and maintain your concrete storage dome. Most domes are situated at a 35-degree angle and can range from 150 to 250 feet in diameter. The unique shape of the storage dome creates a non-standard flow pattern that makes material build up much more likely and much more difficult to remove from dome walls and fluidizing equipment.
 
Concrete storage domes suffering from restricted airflow need comprehensive cleaning and maintenance. Hardened stored material that is caked on dome walls needs to be removed through professional cleaning to return the dome to its original efficiency. Air pads and other fluidizing equipment may also need to be restored or replaced if there are signs of corrosion or defects affecting its usability.
 
Bulk storage is the term for buildings that store bulk commodities such as cement, sand, frac sand, salt, fertilizer, feed, grains, aggregates, carbon, chips, seeds, peanuts, coke, blasting powder – and the list goes on.

While silo cleaning may initially seem like a silo cost of ownership you need to factor, it can save you money and help you stick to production schedules. A clogged silo can cause several problems that impact efficiency and lead to reduced profits. When stored material becomes compacted or builds up on interior walls, it can prevent a silo from reaching its full storage capacity. Once a silo begins to lose flow, this accelerates the buildup over time and can lead to additional blockages.
 
Clogged or slow running silos signify that material is not properly flowing through the silo. In addition to reducing storage capacity and slowing production, this also jeopardizes the silo's structural integrity. Proper material flow through the silo is critical to the longevity of the structure. Poor material flow can create a range of problems in loading/unloading efficiency, uneven internal loading and even lead to wall failure due to unequal pressure distribution.
 
Proper cleaning and care will increase your silo's useable lifespan and minimize big-ticket repair and cleaning costs. It can also allow you to recover stagnant material that has built up inside the silo. In short, material flow issues don't just hamper productivity; they can also lead to silo damage or failure. When it comes to saving costs on your silo cleaning, it doesn't pay to wait. There are few things as expensive as unplanned downtime.
