For bulk materials storage
Silos and Hoppers are large air-tight containers that store, generate and process bulk material. Used in a variety of industries around the world, they hold products such as grain, coal, cement, carbon black, wood pellets, food and sawdust. There are three main types used on sites today – tower silos, bunker silos and bag silos.
For effective production, the material inside an upright cylindrical silo should be able to slide along the inner walls without any obstruction.
However, when the material inside the container builds up, the flow is either restricted or is stopped completely. Unblocking the silo and hopper correctly is necessary to avoid lasting damage to the structures.
This is where Primasonics’ Acoustic Cleaners come in. Our devices are specifically engineered to clean the inside of Silos and Hoppers in a safe and effective manner. In doing so, our aim is to use the latest cleaning technologies to ensure the utmost efficiency of silos and hoppers, resulting in less bulk material flow problems in the future.
We can even supply a research report that has been prepared jointly with the University of Liverpool, one of the UK’s leading acoustic academic institutions, to prove that our Acoustic Cleaning Systems are completely safe.
