Silo Safety Equipment

Silo Safety

Silos are a particularly high risk area of the plant which is deserving of extra maintenance consideration. Dangerous and expensive incidents can occur which have massive repercussions on operators, causes often include:

  • Silo level measurement failure resulting in silo overfill
  • Insufficient / failed venting leading to overpressure in the silo
  • Maintenance staff working at the top of silos and/or climbing vertical ladders posing significant work at height risks.

Extra safety steps can be introduced to help minimise the chances of accidents occurring. Our products help to reduce the risk of component failure and reduce operator risk.
