Successful clean of sugar silo at major UK bakery

A leading UK based bakery recently contacted the expert team at ACS Cleaning, as they required a complete inspection and clean of one of the sugar silos at their premises. Three experienced rope access and confined space trained technicians were assigned to the task, to look for the cause of a blockage within the silo that was stopping the flow of sugar into the production plant.

Inspection & Cleaning Process

Once the ACS Cleaning team arrived at the premises, we quickly began completing our specialist silo inspection and cleaning process. This included working on the following areas:

  • The general structure of the silo
  • Intake pipe
  • Filter housing
  • Explosion panels

After Inspection

After inspecting each of the above areas, it became clear that the air filters and general structure of the silo required the most attention.

Once the inspection was complete, our specialist cleaning team began the cleaning operation. This includes the use of the ACS vacuum unit and mobile hopper bagging plant to extract the product by sucking within the silo and storing it into bags on site ready for transportation.

Results & Aftercare

After completing the process, the client was absolutely thrilled with the end result.

The client was provided with a complete list of recommendations, to maintain their silo in the future.
