BUCHEN-ICS Cardox®

Solving agricultural silo blockages with Cardox; a case study

There are various options available on the market to solve blockages, but what if the material is completely blocked and you cannot wait weeks to get your silo back in operation?
The rising temperatures in summer, along with humidity, often cause materials in silos to clump together, making it challenging to extract for example animal feed. Recently, a customer from the Netherlands faced this problem, what put his animal feed supply at risk.

At BUCHEN-ICS we specialize in applying the Cardox® system to clear blockages, such as in this food silo, without the need for personnel entry, very fast and safe for the team. Our devices and PPE are fully approved for this purpose.

Details of the silo project:

  • The silo of 60 m with about 800 tonnes of stuck wheat.
  • We used a combination of Cardox® and BinDrill® equipment to clear the blockage, without having to enter the silo.
  • All devices, including reusable Cardox® tubes, was transported and safely refilled on-site by us.
  • The Cardox® operation in this project was completed in just 2 days, instead of weeks, to get the silo empty.

Should summer heat cause your silos to block and risk your animal feed supply, reach out to BUCHEN-ICS directly for quick solutions with our innovative cleaning methods.

Blocked silos? We let your bulk flow. With our mobile silo cleaning systems - without entry. BUCHEN-ICS is one of the leading international providers of catalyst handling, silo cleaning, as well as chemical cleaning and decontamination. The silo cleaning service provided by BUCHEN-ICS is a highly specialized service for contaminated and clogged bulk material containers, which is performed without the need for personnel entry. Regardless of the type of bulk material - whether it’s coal, fertilizer, gypsum, cement, grain, animal feed, salt, or clay - it eventually accumulates on the container walls or clumps together. This contamination affects the container and reduces material flow and available storage capacity. Using the mobile silo cleaning systems BinDrill®, BinWhip®, and Cardox®, BUCHEN experts eliminate any form of contamination in silos up to 45 meters deep, without having to enter the containers and without potentially contaminating the bulk material. The cleaning equipment for mobile silo cleaning is antistatic, spark-proof, and meets even the strict safety standards and hygiene regulations of the chemical and food industries. The modular design of the equipment allows for quick installation on the container and adaptation to individual container sizes. Personnel entry into the silo is never necessary during the cleaning. At BUCHEN-ICS, you benefit from state-of-the-art technologies and our 45 years of experience in turnaround and projects.

Case study: no-entry silo cleaning for soybean storage operator
A leading company in the food industry from Europe presented our BUCHEN-ICS team from Rotterdam with a persistent challenge in their soybean storage facility in South Holland. 1500 m³ of beans stuck Over the past few years, the operation has been struggling with continuous blockage issues in its soybean silo, where approximately 1500 m³ of beans remained immobile despite numerous attempts at solutions. This blockade significantly affected operational processes and had a negative impact on productivity and profitability. When our team took on this project, it was estimated that the silo had reached a blockage level of 100% over several years. Our experts recognized the urgency and complexity of the challenge and were determined to find a solution using the best possible method. The technologies BinDrill and Cardox Over several shifts, the BinDrill technology was used to carefully drill through the compressed soybeans from the top of the silo. This process aimed to create passages within the blockade and loosen the material. Now we employed the powerful Cardox system. This technology rapidly releases liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), breaking

Cardox: silo blockage clearing system A controlled carbon dioxide explosion with pressures up to 3000 Bar breaks compacted material in silos and storage vessels
Cardox: silo blockage clearing system
A controlled carbon dioxide explosion with pressures up to 3000 Bar breaks compacted material in silos and storage vessels Our Cardox® system breaks up compacted material in storage vessels by suddenly releasing liquid carbon dioxide. This method uses high strength, reusable steel tubes filled with liquid carbon dioxide (CO2). This is activated by a small electric charge causing it to expand and create a powerful force of up to 3,000 bar. Several tonnes of material can be detached with a single detonation. The Cardox® system can even be used while production continues as normal if the vessels have been fitted out with permanent tube sockets.
