Grain Storage Vessel Cleaning & Maintenance

Feed and grain are two of the most popular bulk materials stored in silos or bins. Just like with any bulk material, regular maintenance and care are required to help keep your products flowing as they should. Our expert team is dedicated to preventing downtime caused by blockages, addressing safety concerns, and averting costly repairs in the future.

Repairing silo grain blockage in Minneapolis, MN & Denver, COProblems Associated With Grain Blockage

If you experience a restricted flow or complete blockage in your silo or bin, you may encounter one of several different issues. Below are the most common types of problems you may see:

  • Bridging — when there is an arch just above the exit hole, preventing flow
  • Ratholing — when material clings to the wall creating a hole in the middle of the bin/silo, minimizing flow
  • Smolder — if materials don’t move effectively, they can collect heat in stagnant materials due to mold or excess moisture.
  • Funneling
  • Plugging
  • Wall Scale
