Silos are used around the world for storing food and feed commodities. Regardless of how long these commodities are stored, they need to be protected against the damage that insects can cause. Preservation of the quality of the commodities is essential.
After many years of experience in applying the Controlled Atmosphere technique to climate chambers, EcO2 has developed a mobile method for applying the technique to treat commodities stored in silos. Silos are constructed in various ways and using a wide variety of materials. EcO2 assists clients to customize any type of silos so that Controlled Atmosphere treatments can be successfully performed.
The Controlled Atmosphere silo fumigation can be applied at, for example, flour or rice companies and is very well suited for third party storage facilities. Flour and rice companies commonly use EcO2’s silo system to treat raw materials (e.g. wheat), use EcO2’s airtight chambers to treat the finished product and EcO2’s heat treatment technique to kill insects in empty silos. However, all methods can be applied separately depending on the customer’s need.
Mobile heaters can be used to eliminate infestation when silos are empty, the heaters are designed to heat silos of up to 300m3. Contact us for more information on mobile treatments for your silos.
