Cleaning & Maintenance
We are trained and equipped to handle buildup, flow issues, and blockages of any volume and severity. In storage silos and tanks, bulk material that stands too long can gradually harden and get stuck inside the structure, holding your company’s assets. An absence of regular maintenance can increase the risk of severe bulk material clogging, so it is recommended to inspect and clean the structure regularly to avoid costly downtime or repairs.
Do keep in mind, however: that no issue is too severe for us to handle. Unlike other contractors, our team has never walked away from an unfinished cleaning project. Regardless of the situation, we have all the necessary cutting-edge capabilities and unlimited resources to retrieve your product and return your structure to its full storage capacity. In order to solve flow issues, we utilize Cardox CO2 blasting devices, expert equipment and machinery, such as proprietary whips, industrial shotguns and more. We are fully licensed and trained to handle conventional and non-conventional explosives when necessary in the most severe situations.
We provide strategic yet thorough inspections designed to evaluate the condition of your structure using any methods that would benefit your facility the most. We will develop a personalized plan that may include visual inspection techniques, drone inspection and non-destructive testing. Our specialty access team, engineers and project managers can identify any hazards and prepare a mitigation plan to decrease and eliminate threats to both your resources and workers’ safety.
Most of the silos used across the nation date back 40-50 years or more. Silo failures and collapses happen every year, endangering plant workers and costing facilities their resources. Naturally, regular inspections are crucial in ensuring consistent safety and structural integrity of a silo or vessel. These structures are susceptible to structural deficiencies and environmental damage which may lead to a loss of assets or even to a full structure collapse. The earlier you learn about present anomalies and risks, the lower the likelihood of extensive—and expensive—future repairs. Our team can develop a strategic plan for regular inspections in your plant which will allow us to identify any needs for preventive maintenance early on, enabling your facility to always be one step ahead.
