Our cleaning process utilizes dry air, which enables silo contents to be cleaned without the use of water and without creating any waste product. The nature of using dry air, also means that silos can be returned to operation immediately after the cleaning has been completed. In many cases, silos may continue to be used while they are cleaned.
The silo cleaning process is also safer than other processes as at no time during our cleaning process do workers enter the silo.
Check out our industry case studies
Our advanced cleaning process uses compressed air to drive specially designed cleaning heads. This technique is far more powerful than the best industrial whips in use in the market.
The cleaning heads are inserted and guided into clogged containers, via access ports on the outside of the container, and are effective in openings as small as 4 inches. Once the cleaning heads are inserted, regulated air pressure is applied and constantly monitored to ensure optimum cleaning effectiveness.
In order to ensure maximum cleaning effectiveness and protect the storage container, experienced personnel continuously monitor the cleaning process. The air pressure used is carefully evaluated before cleaning begins and then regulated as needed during the process.
The SASC cleaning process utilizes a high-pressure compressor connected to one or more open-ended rubber cleaning hoses. Special cleaning heads are attached, as needed, to the ends of the hoses. The cleaning hoses are inserted into a clogged silo, whereby the whipping action of the pressurized hoses and cleaning heads cause the clogged material to be dislodged and drop to the bottom of the silo, from where it can safely be removed.
Our expertise lies in our knowledge of how to optimize the cleaning process – where to place the cleaning hoses, the size of cleaning hoses to use, the use of cleaning heads, and the management of air pressure and air flow volumes used during the cleaning process.
