Periodic preventative inspections can identify areas of potential concern in concrete silos before safety issues such as concrete fall, wall failure, and complete silo collapse can occur.

According to Dennis Blauser, CEO, Marietta Silos, all concrete storage silos should be inspected every other year, and more often depending on their condition and amount of usage.

Marietta Silos is an industry leader in silo inspection and repair. The company has developed a three-tier inspection system to ensure silos remain functional and safe for their expected useful lifespan.

The company’s thorough inspection process culminates in a detailed report. Choices range from a Level I visual inspection from the ground, to a Level III inspection including wall soundings, internal structural checks, and cone thickness measurements.
