Why refurbish silos?


In the core of diverse industries, silos play a vital role in facilitating the smooth movement of resources, from grains to chemicals, thus serving as the backbone of numerous operations. However, the longevity of these critical structures can be compromised over time due to wear and tear.

This is where the need for silo refurbishment emerges and Bentall Rowlands doesn’t simply focus on preservation. Our goal extends beyond that, encompassing the preservation of efficiency, the enhancement of safety and a commitment to fostering a sustainable future. With a well-earned reputation in the industry, we have firmly established ourselves as experts in refurbishing various structures.

The importance of silos

Towering above industrial landscapes, silos might seem like simple structures however, their significance in various industries cannot be overstated.

  1. Efficiency Boosters: They provide a dedicated space to store raw materials, grains, or finished products, ensuring a constant supply to production lines. Eliminating the need for frequent transportation and reducing downtime, ultimately leading to cost savings and higher productivity.
  2. Storage Solutions: Silos offer secure and weather-resistant storage, protecting valuable resources from contamination and environmental factors. This not only preserves product quality but also minimizes waste.
  3. Product Quality Assurance: Silos are designed to maintain optimal storage conditions, such as temperature and humidity levels. This translates to better preservation of goods, ensuring that products reach consumers in their best possible state.
  4. Inventory Management: Silos enable precise inventory control. With real-time monitoring and controlled access, you can manage stock levels efficiently, reducing the risk of overstocking or running out of essential materials.
  5. Cost-Effective: By reducing transportation costs, minimising waste and optimising storage, silos prove to be a wise financial decision for businesses of all sizes.

10 signs your silo needs refurbishing.

  1. Leakage: Any signs of leaks from the roof or walls suggest that structural integrity has been compromised.
  2. Deformities: Bulges or dents on walls indicate stress and should be promptly addressed.
  3. Rust and Corrosion: Visible rust and corrosion on the exterior can be a clear sign of deterioration and may indicate the need for refurbishment.
  4. Cracks and Fractures: Cracks in the concrete or structural components can compromise the silo’s strength and safety.
  5. Foundation Issues: If there are problems with the foundation, such as settling or shifting, it can affect the stability of the entire silo structure.
  6. Material Flow Problems: Difficulty in the flow of materials in and out of the silo, such as clogs or uneven discharge, can be a sign of internal damage or wear and tear.
  7. Excessive Wear: Wear and tear on mechanical components, such as conveyor systems or filling equipment, can reduce the efficiency and safety of the silo.
  8. Safety Concerns: Any safety hazards, such as loose bolts, missing safety railings, or damaged access points, should be addressed promptly to ensure a safe working environment.
  9. Frequent Repairs: If you find yourself constantly making repairs to the silo, investing in a refurbishment to address underlying issues may be more cost-effective in the long run.
  10. Age: Silos have a finite lifespan and older structures may require refurbishment simply due to aging and wear.
