Industrial Silo Cleaning

About Industrial Silo Cleaning

Periodic industrial silo cleaning is important for several reasons including, but not limited to: cleaning out residue buildup, reducing production line clogs, removing food contaminants, preventing micorbial contamination, protecting against infestation, and maximizing storage capacity.

Industrial silos are used to store a wide variety of materials, including dry goods, wet materials and chemical products, all of which require silo cleaning services. The buildup of residue on the interior reduces the volume of fresh product the silo will hold and may eventually make the silo unusable until the residue is removed.

Free movement of stored materials, on a first-in, first-out basis, is key to maximizing silo efficiency, so that the oldest product is evacuated first and does not contaminate newer, fresher product. Common problems are rat-holing and bridging. With rat-holing, powder from dry goods adheres to the walls of the silo, allowing only a narrow channel (rat hole) through which product can flow out of the silo. Bridging happens when material causes a blockage at the base of the silo.

Hughes Environmental is highly skilled at safely and thoroughly cleaning silos, while minimizing downtime in your operation. Our service is fast and effective. We also clean tanks, cooling towers, industrial ovens and high ceilings.
