Action Duct's Commercial and industrial silo and tank cleaning involves the meticulous removal of residues and contaminants to ensure operational efficiency and compliance.

Industrial Silo & Tank Cleaning

Action Duct has an uncompromising commitment to quality and safety. We are highly skilled at cleaning silos, dry or wet storage tanks, bins, hoppers, cooling towers and industrial ovens (link to industrial oven cleaning page). servicing the agricultural, food, oil, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Periodic silo cleaning is important for several reasons:
  • Cleaning out residue buildup
  • Reducing product clotting that can clog production lines
  • Removing food contaminants and minimizing potential liability
  • Preventing or eliminating microbial contamination
  • Protecting against insect infestation
  • Maintaining product freshness
  • Maximizing storage capacity and silo efficiency

The buildup of residue on the interior of silos reduces the volume of fresh product the silo will hold and may eventually make the silo unusable until the residue is removed.

How Silo & Tank Cleaning Improves Efficiency

Free movement of stored materials, on a first-in, first-out basis, is key to maximizing silo efficiency, so that the oldest product is evacuated first and does not contaminate newer, fresher product. Common problems are rat holing and bridging. With rat holing, powder from dry goods adheres to the walls of the silo. Bridging happens when material causes a blockage at the base of the silo.

Action Duct is highly skilled at safely and thoroughly cleaning silos, while minimizing downtime in your operation. Our service is fast and effective. We also clean bins, hoppers, tanks, cooling towers, industrial ovens and high ceilings.

Flour Silo Cleaning

Food storage receptacles, such as flour silos, need routine maintenance. Poor or delayed silo cleaning can create liability issues. Certain species of beetles thrive on grain and seed products. They will invade and contaminate flour silos readily if not cleaned regularly.

Periodic cleaning removes old food product, thus reducing the spread of microbial contamination into a freshly filled silo.

Cement Silo Cleaning

Cement silos are particularly prone to caking and clogging, for a few reasons:
  • Material that is not fully cooled creates condensation that causes the raw meal, finished cement, or clinker to stick together or cling to the sides
  • Moisture in the air dampens cement, which can lead to blockages and flow problems
