Silo Repair of Rusted Hoops, Broken Staves and Wall Failure - Oklahoma

Market: Manufacturing

Material Stored: Aggregates

Silo Size: 28' diameter by 58' tall

Issue: Rusted hoops, broken staves and wall failure

Silos for repair
A silo that was constructed with concrete staves and utilized steel galvanized hoops.

 

Pictured above is a silo that was constructed with concrete staves and utilized steel galvanized hoops around the silo for structural integrity. Marietta Silos was called in after failure to inspect this silo and provide recommendation for repair. This silo demonstrated rusted and broken hoops, broken staves and silo walls that failed about 10' down from the roof.

This could have been prevented with regular inspections of these stave silos. Silos are a bulk storage and material handling system that requires preventative maintenance the same as all other operating equipment in the process.
