PENRITH - Cement silo cleaning that is conducted in an effective and safe manner is a priority for all cement plants around the world. Cement as a material (like coal and gypsum) has properties which under certain conditions will cause it to cling to silo walls and create blockages.
The results of this can be very costly and dangerous - loss of storage capacity, production delays and sometimes even serious and fatal accidents if attempts at manual cleaning are attempted. (Read more about health and safety in the cement industry)
So not only is effective silo cleaning required but also safe silo cleaning. Our acoustic cleaners meet the criteria for both. Indeed, in cement plants there can be other problems such as material build-up on pre-heater id fans.
Primasonics recently supplied their PAS-120 acoustic cleaner for installation on a pre-heater ID fan in a cement plant in Malaysia. Previously, the plant was having to stop the fan every 25 days to totally clean it but since the PAS-120 was installed that has not been necessary.
The only time they have stopped the fan since the installation of our acoustic cleaner has been to check to see if there had been any material build-up. What did they find? No build up at all inside the fan. Not surprising therefore that the company has since contacted us to express their satisfaction with the performance of our product. So much so that they now want their agent back on site to discuss other fan cleaning and silo applications.
