Curious about how chipping concrete benefits your drums, mixers and silos? It’s all about lessening the physical burden they’re under. Allow us to elaborate. Consider your central mixers and redi mix drums like a water bottle
. When you go to pour the water, no matter how hard you try to get each and every drop out, a little bit will always remain behind. The same is true for the concrete you mix and pour. Even the best-planned pours will leave residual concrete along the walls and, with time, that material accumulates. The added weight can eventually throw your drums off balance, while the material itself lowers your carrying capacity. Other issues
enter the mix, too, such as slowed or halted rotations and inconsistent concrete blends
. In terms of your cement storage silos, humid conditions can lead to clumping and clogs
that make it impossible to pour the dried material you need. In all instances, preventative maintenance with a professionally trained team is the best way to ward off troubles.
When you book concrete chipping services, you’re more than likely hiring crews on to tackle three separate activities at once. After all, if the goal is to keep your concrete projects moving forward as they should, that doesn’t just mean your ready mix trucks. Companies like General Chipping roll up their sleeves on redi mix truck drum chipping
, central mixer chipping
and cement silo cleaning
, too. Here’s what that work boils down to:
Just like every concrete or construction company is different, every concrete chipping company goes about the work in its own way. You’ll want to take time to find a crew you feel you can trust with your valuable fleet and equipment. Here are a few things to consider when it comes time to make that decision:
Every company’s concrete chipping needs vary slightly, depending on issues such as the concrete blends at play
, the ready mix trucks that make up your fleet and even the amount of work your crew takes on each week. In general, though, experts recommend scheduling concrete chipping services quarterly
. At General Chipping, we encourage customers to book cement silo cleaning services
at the same time as their concrete chipping work, so all maintenance is taken care of in one fell swoop.
