Silo Cleaning & Maintenance

Silo Cleaning & Maintenance

Silo cleaning has diverse benefits dependent on industry requirements.

In the food industry, annual cleaning is an essential part of hygiene. Where there is a constant re-supply of product, condensation or moisture can become problematic, this can lead to product adhering to the roof and top half of the silo, this can cause blockages or bridging, the product can also become contaminated with mould or even infestation. Cleaning on a scheduled basis can improve storage capacity leading to increased productivity.
On completion of all works, written & photographic reports can be supplied.
In the plastics industry, annual cleaning is not essential, mould and infestation are not a problem. The silo product can become contaminated and cause defects in the end product, particularly if the stored material is changed, an immediate clean is advisable when this occurs to minimise disruption to productivity.
Entry into Silo's is made via the hatch on top of the silo, our Rope Access methods allow entry, egress and rescue, all of our Technicians are fully trained to IRATA Standards and our working methods conform to the British Standard BS7985.

Our Technicians are trained and certificated in Confined Space Entry, Egress & Rescue  to occupational standards. All of our procedures conform to The Confined Space Regulations 1997 which include provision of site specific Risk and Method Statements. We also operate a Confined Space Entry Permit, this covers a pre-entry checklist to include air testing, communication and an evacuation plan. Whilst inside a confined space, working procedures include use of air monitors, testing for toxic gases, vapours and air particulates. Site specific PPE and escape BA sets will also be on hand in case there is the need of casualty evacuation.

Rope Access Commercial Window Cleaning Birmingham

Rope Access Commercial Window Cleaning Birmingham using Reach & Wash

We have deployed our Rope Access Team onto a new contract this week to deliver
 High Level Window Cleaning to a Commercial Office Block in Birmingham City Centre.

We initially made a site visit to quote on the contract which we subsequently have been awarded to  undertake x5 cleans in the initial year......The glazing on the Building had not been cleaned correctly for some considerable time...... This is why our rope access services have been engaged.

Our Rope Access Window Cleaning Team are one of the most experienced in their field, delivering both traditional window cleaning using mop & blade and using Reach & Wash method.

Reach & Wash Window Cleaning is the preferred method on this building, we are using the Quattro System from Ionics....this is our portable 4 stage filtration system that takes out water impurities and delivers pure water.....
Due to the complex shape of the windows and frames, traditional methods of window cleaning wouldnt really work.

Pigeon Guano Removal using Rope Access Birmingham

Specialist Cleaning using Rope Access Birmingham

We have been given the task of removing an infestation of pigeon guano from 6 high rise tower blocks on behalf of Solihull Borough Council.

We deployed our specialist cleaning team to carry out the works to the x6 14 storey tower blocks.

Removal of guano can come with risks to health but as long as these risks are managed then they become minimal.

In the first instance..... the correct PPE was issued to our techs..... safety goggles, P3 dust particle masks, safety gloves and overalls.

At initial stage, the guano is sprayed with PX Ornikill .... a specialist guano disinfectant that kills all the following bacteria associated with guano.....
  • Cryptococcosis is a fungal disease associated with droppings and also grows in soils. It is very unlikely that healthy people will become infected even at high levels of exposure.
  • Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum, which grows in pigeon droppings. It also grows in soils and can be found throughout the world.
  • Psittacosis is an infection caused by Chlamydia psittaci, a type of bacteria found in the droppings of birds such as pigeons. When bird droppings dry and become airborne people may inhale them and get sick.
The PX Ornikill is sprayed to kill the bacteria and to dampen the guano spores..... the guano is then scraped off the glazing and disposed of..... unfortunately most glazing that has been infested with guano over a number of years leaves an acid etching which cannot be removed.

Scenic Lift Cleaning using Rope Access

Scenic Lift Cleaning using Rope Access Methods

We were called in by Newlands Shopping Centre to carry out the cleaning to their scenic lift shaft areas.

The Rope Access Cleaning was the easy bit..... but the rigging was  bit more complex.

Upon surveying the job... we decided that the anchor points were going to be from structural steel work above the lift some points the steel work was 40 ft above with no direct access to it to attach ropes directly.

We agreed that we had to throw a line up & over the tuberlar steel work and create pull thru's
