UPDATING YOUR SILO TO PRESENT STANDARDS

Midlife conversion

Through a midlife conversion, you can update and improve older silo equipment according to present standards and techniques. Of course a new silo will outperform an older system that was built decades ago. However, instead of building a complete new silo system, we can perform a number of upgrades and modifications that will improve performance and safety, while saving operational costs.

Improved performance

Midlife conversion solves many existing drawbacks and workarounds at once. The result of a midlife conversion is less malfunctions and less downtime, as well as improved and more convenient operating and control. You can also focus on well planned preventive maintenance instead of disrupting the logistic flow due to corrective maintenance. The right updates or upgrades will make you compliant with the latest safety regulations, while saving annual costs with a lower total cost of ownership.

First check, then plan First check, then plan

The first step is to inspect and analyze the current status. Based on requests, requirements and inspection, we will offer a founded plan and proposal. In close cooperation with your staff we can execute the agreed upgrades and modifications. This varies from complaying to ATEX-requirements, such as replacing electric motors and instruments by ATEX-certified types, to performance improvements by automatic lubrication, improved slewing drives, dust reduction, and many many more. Contact us to inquire about the many options and possibilities.
