A.

If the silo cannot discharge, can the system unclog the blockage to remove the material inside the silo?

Yes.

The Cardox is able to perform blockage clearing as it can reach difficult to reach areas such as around the air-slides or inlet (alternate) chambers of the silo without human or mechanical entry.

No.

Whip systems only operate from the roof of the silo and cannot be positioned to access areas that are difficult to reach at the bottom of the silo.

Yes.

Usually contractors with little or no awareness to silo hazards are sent in to perform the tasks.

This poses extreme danger to human life.

B.

If the material is still in the silo, can Total Silo Cleaning be performed?

Yes.

If material is still in the silo, it is likely that there is a problem in discharging.

Cardox can first be used to unclog the blockages around the discharge areas so that material can be removed – After which, normal cleaning operation resumes.

No.

Whip systems require that the material must be fully discharged first in order to perform the cleaning action.

If the discharge areas are blocked, the manual method is used to unclog the blockage.

Yes.

This is done by sending 2 teams of 20 contract workers inside the silo.

The manual method requires the use of mechanical equipment which the workers operate at the risks of loosing their lives.

C.

What are the safety risks to human lives?

None.

No person is required to enter the silo for blockage clearing.

In silo cleaning, the operator may optionally enter only after (i) all the loose material in the silo is discharged, (ii) the silo walls are cleaned and (iii) the build-up is beneath the height of the safety manhole that is not higher than 2 meters.

Some danger.

Whip systems require that the material must be fully discharged first in order to perform the cleaning action.

If the discharge areas are blocked, the manual method is used to unclog the blockage – putting lives at stake.

Extreme danger.

Human lives are required to enter the silo in order to manually perform the cleaning operation.

Dangers such as accidental falling from height or loose material plunging down 20 – 50 meters into the work area is a common occurrence.

D.

In silo cleaning, can the process pay for itself?

Yes.

Cardox is able to unclog discharge areas that contain lumps which prevents materials flowing out.

Almost all the material in the silo can be discharged into tankers, which may be sold.

No.

The silo has to be completely shutdown.

All the material removed is contaminated and has to be discarded.

No.

The silo has to be completely shutdown.

All the material removed is contaminated and has to be discarded.

Worse if lives are lost.

Compared to other cleaning techniques, the Cardox System can typically pay for itself in a single application because it is such a fast, efficient and safe method of removing blockages and build-ups.

The Cardox System is both versatile and safe for silo cleaning, clearing of build-up, blockages and rock excavation. It has been proven to many as the most EFFICIENT, RELIABLE and COST EFFECTIVE method used today.

The SiloWhip System is the MOST POWERFUL silo whip in the world. Although it is purposely build to take on the hardened build-up commonly found in cement and clinker silos, it is GENTLE enough to clean out other materials.
