Silo cleaning system moves cement terminal's stock
A silo cleaning system operated from outside the silo works fast to recover otherwise unusable stock while reducing risk to employees.
Coastal Cement Corp. of Boston buys cement by the shipload for resale to its customers in the construction industry. Coastal stores its cement in four cylindrical silos 60 feet in diameter and 120 feet tall. The reinforced concrete, drive-through silos hold a total of 36,OOO tons.
