What do you do when your 500-ton capacity silo needs to be modified from a tapered, oval shape to “true round”? This is exactly the type of challenge P1 Group Millwrights are highly trained to solve.
When Central Plains Cement in Sugar Creek, MO, needed to change the shape of its 500-ton capacity silo to accommodate a new material, P1 Group was chosen as the prime contractor to design, fabricate, and execute the modifications.
P1 Group was able to take control of the initial design and project planning from the beginning, which Marques says eliminated complications with the install and rigging of materials.
The team also met the challenge of the silo’s tricky location, executing the challenging rigging and install of the new 34,000 lb. flange-mounted rotary feeder.
- 500 ton capacity, 24 ft. diameter silo
