Bin & Silo Cleaning

Material buildups take up valuable storage capacity in silos, storage bins, hoppers and chutes.  These material buildups will decrease the “live capacity” of these vessels and limit production flow rates by keeping the material and profits stuck inside the vessel.

ETC’s vessel cleaning system will safely recover lost storage capacity, increase flow rates and recover valuable resources.  Our cleaning system will restore flow problems quickly, minimize downtime and keep employees safe.  ETC utilizes remote controlled equipment from the top of the vessel eliminating the need for dangerous confined space entry.  Our system will restore your vessel to 100% capacity and if the material is currently usable, the material can be reclaimed or reintroduced back into production.
