OUR ADVANCED SILO CLEANING PROCESS

SASC in Comparison to Traditional Cleaning Methods
Traditional cleaning methods can be very costly and time consuming. Storage operators must take into consideration costly down time, resulting in lost productivity and revenues, as well as waste removal, which further adds to cleaning expenses. Many Techniques also require cleaners to work within the confined space of the storage container, increasing the danger and risk.

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.

Professional Care
SASC is aware that each storage facility has its own special needs and requirements. For this reason, each job is analyzed ahead of time by an experienced and professional silo cleaning expert. This is to ensure the cleaning process will provide maximum effectiveness in the shortest time and with the greatest care for your facilities.
Advanced Process

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.

Safety and Property Protection
The SASC cleaning process provides a high level of safety as cleaning personnel remain outside of the storage bin. At no time during the process do personnel have to enter the storage container.

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 Process At A Glance

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.
