Silos can be given a new lease on life with a variety of shotcrete products ranging from a sacrificial 80mpa HSWR shotcrete liner for use in ore silos, new rebar and structural shotcrete to condemned silos that effectively create a new structure within/out.
We have our own platform access equipment allowing us to pass on cost savings to our clients.
For Silo repairs, we offer Carbon Fibre solutions along with shotcrete application.
The shotcrete process will bond to a properly prepared surface with about 65% of the tensile strength that concrete bonds to itself internally (2mpa vs 3mpa). This high strength bond (effectively a monolithic structure) is why the shotcrete will not de-laminate and is an excellent concrete repair method
Carbon fiber provides existing concrete structures with the strength and load tolerance necessary to repair and maintain the integrity of the structure. Unlike steel, carbon fiber technology is a longer lasting, more cost effective alternative for use on cold joints and other small areas
We can design and install a hopper for your silo, regardless of size or shape. The installation of a hopper allows for complete clean-out eliminating the need for human entry. Dangers of entering bins include: atmospheric hazards, combustible hazards, grain engulfment, entrapment, and asphyxiation. By increasing the slope of your existing hopper, you can eliminate cross-contamination of grains or products and avoid dangerous human entry for cleaning. The ease of adding a concrete hopper quickly maximizes the simplicity and efficiency of your daily operation.
