NT Service GmbH – Expert for silo and concrete bunker systems

At the time of industrialization, there were only a few types of silo and concrete bunker systems, which were mainly made of wood and later of concrete. Today, however, in the modern industrial era, there are countless variants of silo systems for a wide range of applications. From agricultural silos to aluminum silos to cement silos, there is a solution for every need.

NT Service GmbH is a company that specializes in the construction of silo and concrete bunker systems. The company offers its customers customized solutions for the storage of bulk materials and liquids. The company works closely with its customers to understand their requirements and needs precisely and to develop a suitable solution.

Silo cleaning is an important aspect in the storage of bulk goods and liquids. NT Service GmbH specializes in the cleaning of silo systems using rope access technology. The company’s experienced industrial climbers work with ropes and lanyards loaded according to plan in order to move and position themselves horizontally, diagonally or vertically.

This ensures quick and safe cleaning of the silo systems and prevents the risk of accidents at work.

NT Service GmbH attaches great importance to compliance with safety regulations and is certified in accordance with DGUV Rule 113-004 for safe access and access control in silo facilities.

Silo cleaning is essential to ensure production quality and safety. Material build-up and blockages can lead to considerable damage that disrupts operations and ties up manpower. Planning and organizing cleaning measures is more economical and easier to plan in the long term than spontaneous breakdowns.

Our measures are designed to avoid driving into silos to rectify faults. In the case of unavoidable work, we rely on effective occupational safety measures to ensure the safety of our employees and the quality of your production. You can rely on our experience and expertise in silo cleaning.

Silos are airtight storage containers for bulk goods in various industries. Depending on the area of application, there are different types of silos, such as grain silos, plastic silos, metal silos or concrete silos. The design and size also vary: There are round or rectangular silos, double-chamber silos or multi-chamber silos, outdoor silos or indoor silos, high silos or large-capacity silos.

Silos are also used in agriculture, e.g. feed silos or manure silos. Agricultural silos are specially designed for agricultural applications and can be made of plastic or metal, depending on requirements. Aluminum silos are particularly suitable for industrial applications due to their robustness and durability, while stainless steel silos are mainly used in the food industry.

There are also special silos for building materials, such as concrete silos, building material silos or molded material silos.

Silos are used to store a variety of materials, including food, chemicals, grain and other raw materials. When these materials need to be removed or the silos need to be maintained, it is often necessary to clean them. There are many different cleaning technologies that are suitable for silo cleaning, and the choice of the appropriate process depends on the contents of the silo.

To determine the correct cleaning method, the safety data sheets and substance descriptions must be taken into account to prevent potential reactions with the various materials. The TRBS (Technical Rules for Operational Safety) must be taken into account and discussed with the plant operator, particularly in the area of hazardous substances.

There are various cleaning methods that can be used. Sweeping, brushing or vacuuming can be used for dry cleaning. Wet cleaning is also possible, either by high-pressure water or low-pressure water blasting or by hot water blasting. Another option is the dry ice blasting method, which is suitable for water-sensitive raw materials. The low-pressure blasting method can be used to remove corrosion or old coatings. Scouring processes with suitable grinding and scouring machines are also an option. Chemical cleaning can be carried out using alkaline, acidic or solvents. Burning or flame processes can be used to remove coatings, while blast cleaning is used in power plant combustion chambers, for example.

Ultimately, it is important to select the appropriate cleaning method for each silo based on the ingredients and specific requirements in order to perform safe and effective cleaning.

Another important feature of silos is ventilation, which ensures good storage and quality retention of the bulk material. Special ventilation silos and high silo systems are available for this purpose. The installation of silos often requires specialized professionals such as industrial climbers, who are used for the installation and maintenance of industrial silos, e.g. gypsum silos or granulate silos.

In conclusion, there are many different methods for cleaning silo systems that can be used depending on the type and composition of the substances in the silo. To ensure that cleaning is carried out professionally and safely, it is advisable to work with an experienced and reliable cleaning company such as NT Service GmbH. The company has extensive expertise in silo cleaning and can offer individual solutions for every customer requirement. With NT Service GmbH as your partner, you can be sure that your silo system will be cleaned thoroughly and professionally.
