Cement Silo Maintenance

Cement silo is the important component of concrete batching plants. It is prone to wear in high frequency and high strength production conditions. As you know, good equipment is vital to the construction staffs, and good maintenance will extend the life of the equipment. So the passage mainly introduces cement silo briefly and the maintenance methods of cement silo.

Brief Introduction of Cement Silo

The cement silo has a cylindrical structure, and the bottom is supported by four round tube legs. Besides, the entire silo is welded by steel structure. There are a dust collector and a pressure safety valve on the top.

Maintenance Methods of Using Cement Silo

When the cement silo is working, it is erected by a crane, placing on the prepared concrete foundation and welding. Therefore, the cement silo is a fixed tank while using.In addition, the material is output through the discharge port. Therefore, it is important to ensure the smoothness of the discharging door.

In order to ensure unobstructed discharge of the cement silo, first of all, it is necessary to ensure convey dry material into the cement silo. Otherwise, stones will form in the tank body, which will affect the unloading of the cement silo.

When storing bulk materials in the cement silo, it is necessary to check whether the cement silo is well-sealed, whether there is air leakage, etc. If it is found to be abnormal, it should be handled in time to prevent the problem expand. In addition, when cleaning cement silo, the cement silo should be dried to prevent the material from getting wet.

Before discharging materials, we should open the manual discharge valve at the bottom of the cone firstly, conveying the cement through the cement conveyor.

In the process of transporting cement into the cement silo, the operator should uninterruptedly press the button of the precipitator to shake off the cement attached to the bag of the precipitator, preventing the bag from being blocked and a bursting occurs.
