“We wanted to reduce the need to visit the silo roof without compromising the risk of overfill. SafePoint has allowed us to achieve both.” Transport & Production Manager
Cement silo filling at a major readymixed concrete producer was causing concern. The serious consequences of silo overfill and subsequent safety hazards to protect the environment were a major issue. Traditional level switches required silo roof visits for testing, creating additional risks for staff.
Client decided to replace all traditional level switches with SafePoint in 2008. As a result, no overfills have occurred and safer operator procedures have been introduced.
