Deposited material does not only reduce the storage capacity. It also impedes the material flow and can contaminate stored bulk materials. For our highly specialised silo cleaning services, we use hydraulically driven cleaning systems that are more powerful in terms of torque and impact at all operating speeds than, for example, compressed air systems. The system's whips are anti-static, spark-proof and gentle on the surface of container walls. The entire equipment meets the strict safety standards of the chemical industry and food production.
Our BinWhip® system consists of hydraulically controlled telescopic arms with knuckle whips attached to them – a particularly effective method for removing deposits as the system creates such a strong rotational force. We use either UHMW whips, spark-proof bronze chains or specially produced steel chains to carry out the work depending on the type of material that needs to be removed.
Our BinDrill® system is ideal for clearing material when a silo is completely bridged or the discharge section has become clogged up. We are able to deal with the toughest of material as this system is powered by high-torque industrial hydraulic motors and we are able to choose from a variety of different drills.
Our Cardox® system breaks up compacted material in storage vessels by suddenly releasing liquid carbon dioxide. This method uses high strength, reusable steel tubes filled with liquid carbon dioxide (CO2). This is activated by a small electric charge causing it to expand and create a powerful force of up to 3,000 bar. Several tonnes of material can be detached with a single detonation. The Cardox® system can even be used while production continues as normal if the vessels have been fitted out with permanent tube sockets.
