Renowned for their reliable, hygienic storage of expensive animal feed, silos are an important piece of farm equipment. All silos, regardless of manufacturer, have a robust steel structure.
Yes, steel boasts longevity and durability but it still requires a little TLC to keep the silo working at its best and also importantly ensure the structure is safe. When it comes to care it is essential not to confuse low-maintenance with no maintenance.
Often overlooked, silo maintenance is essential to prevent the corrosion of the steel structure as a result of long term weathering or accidental damage. The consequences of failure could be devastating.
SiloMOT has been developed to make silo safety a priority whilst also ensuring your silo’s life is greatly extended through a regular maintenance schedule.
Keep a record of all your silos, MOT history and receive reminders for annual checks.
Simple to use, the self-assessed SiloMOT guides you step by step to evaluate all critical points on a structure. A pass will give you and your feed delivery company, peace of mind that any personnel filling or operating your silo will be safe.
