Bluepower specialises in no-entry silo cleaning, which means that we use robots instead of performing manual work. Using the BinDrill and BinWhip solutions from Pneumat, we can automate everything without the need for flushing with water. This is both highly efficient and profitable. No-one has to enter the silo. If necessary, we firstly use BinDrill to drill a hole to open a channel from the silo. BinWhip is an automated machine with arms that is lowered down from the top of the silo. The arms rotate, ensuring that any materials are loosened from the walls.
Most people who have worked with silos will have experienced them becoming clogged (such as a plug forming at the bottom). Traditionally, silo cleaning was performed by people entering the silo to manually loosen any materials using e.g. high-pressure washers. There are risks associated with such processes and it can also lead to deteriorated materials that need to be discarded. We overcome these challenges.
The equipment can be customised for the silo contents to ensure the most careful operation possible depending on whether the silo is used to store soft or hard contents. The system can be used on anything from cement, gravel, coal and fertiliser to grain, salt and animal feed.
Bluepower provides a complete service. The company’s fully equipped team will bring all the necessary equipment and personnel directly to the customer’s premises. A further advantage is that the customer’s facility can remain operational during cleaning.
