Custom-Engineered Industrial Silo Lining Design & Build
At IA Mechanical, we specialize in customizing components needed at factories and plants. No specification that may be required at the plant is too complex; we can design and build a custom solution. Everything from space restrictions to equipment type and beyond is considered. One component we specialize in is silo liners and all products necessary to successfully implement silo liners.
Types of Linings
Silo liners serve the purpose of ensuring that silos and tanks remain watertight and resist any infestation, corrosion, or the like. To do so, silo owners line the walls of the tank with several different types of lining. While no silo or tank is the same, certain materials and methods are consistent – especially within the same industry. Below are some of the most common materials used to line a silo:
- PVC – Flexible material that is easy to work with.
- Enpex FPP – Film varies in thickness and is suitable for the storage of all types of water.
- Urethane – Common liner to protect grain bulk materials and other materials that tend to be abrasive.
- Baked Phenolic
- Teflon-Filled Epoxy
- Sheet Rubber
Applications for Lining Materials
Whether your factory handles water/wastewater, petroleum/chemical materials, food storage, or is a condensate tank, IA Mechanical can help determine the best approach to a silo liner. Some instances require specific specialty coatings, floor coatings, or industrial painting to protect your silo or tank.
For many instances, more than one lining material may be used to protect your storage material to the greatest degree possible. For example, in a flour silo, you may want to eliminate the risk of chipping and flaking paint chips from falling into the silo with the flour. To adequately protect the silo, the silo would be cleaned and sandblasted and then given two layers of low odor, food-grade epoxy. This method is chosen to adhere to USDA specifications.
All methods used at IA Mechanical have three main benefits. We ensure that whatever method we choose for our clients is flexible, easy to install, and cost-effective. Our expert team can work together to determine the best plan for each situation and budget.
