Should I upgrade my cement silo?

Cement silos are used to store and discharge cement and other powder materials when required. Some of the most common signs that your silo needs to be replaced include:

  • Weight inaccuracies on powders discharged
  • Flaking paint and signs of rust
  • Blockages in the flow of powder
  • Worn flights on augers
