Silo Cleaning using Rope Access Methods

Silo Cleaning using Rope Access Methods

We have just completed another annual clean to a number of silo's for a National Bakery.

We have been cleaning the silo's for a number of years now, we put this down to our high level of Health & Safety  and experience of Working in Confined Spaces  All of our works are overseen by a Confined Space Supervisor certificated to City & Guilds Level 4

Our Specialist Rope Access Team entered the silo to carry out a thorough dust down and removal of excess flour prior to re supply of the new product.


One of the silo's that needed cleaning was already having some maintenance works carried out in the form of a new air filtration system, the existing filter system had been removed and the hole had not been covered up to prevent rain getting in. Rain had got into the silo and had contaminated the layer of flour left inside the silo, over time this created mildew and we were left with no option but to pressure wash the silo to de-contaminate it ready for product re-supply


as you can see in this picture - the mildew is being removed by pressure washing.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any Confined Space Works
