Silos store various types of materials such as gypsum, clinker, cement, soda ash, etc.
Most of these material are hygroscopic which absorbs moisture and solidify and stick to the walls of the silo reducing the usable volume of the silo and gradually blocking the flow of material through the silo. This results in loss of revenue due to unexpected stoppages and loss of valuable material.
Manual cleaning is most commonly employed to clean the silos which involves sending personnel inside the silo to clean the silo walls. This is highly hazardous and a huge safety concern.
Thejo offers a completely automated Silo Cleaning Service which knock off the build up on the Silo walls with out human interference inside the Silo. We offer the complete equipment and crew required to break down the blockages inside the Silo to retain normal flow of material and attain full storage capacity of the Silo.
The equipment typically consists of a motorized whip attached to an adjustable boom which can be inserted into the silo from the top. The whip can be operated by a single person from outside the silo using a control panel there by eliminating the need of hazards associated with confined space entry. The rotating whip breaks the build up inside the silo and cleans the silo wall much faster than conventional methods thereby saving valuable production time. This is a completely dry process with no water contamination or use of chemicals and explosives.
