Silo fumigation is a cost-effective method to treat large amounts of grain products, for example cereals, animal feeds or chocolate within its storage vessel (e.g. a silo). It is a viable, alternative service to container fumigation.
The use of Rentokil’s silo fumigation service can help your business comply with strict food guidelines.
Most silo fumigations are done to save time and money due to the fact that large amounts of product can be treated in one hit for a relatively low cost compared to container fumigation.
The quality of stored commodities will not be affected or downgraded. Using silo fumigation means that your final product will not be affected with insect specimens or fragments.
The silo must meet similar protocols as the pressure decay fumigation for the product to be suitable for treatment within it.
A pressure test on a silo does not have to be done every time the silo is used for treatment, but it is recommended that it is inspected every time before use and pressure tested every 6 months or when modifications have been made to ensure efficacy of the fumigation service.
