The Importance of Hycontrol Silo Protection Systems for Your Business
Hycontrol’s silo overfill protection system is designed for both safety and efficiency. By keeping the silos from overfilling, they help to prevent catastrophic accidents that could potentially have devastating consequences.
They also reduce the amount of time and money spent on maintenance and repair, as regular maintenance is much easier with their advanced systems. The utilized technology performs a comprehensive system check within a mere six seconds, reducing maintenance time and service costs.
Additionally, the pressure sensor of the system detects not only pressure but also vacuum. When it detects this condition, it will open both the inlet and pressure relief valves completely to eliminate the vacuum and prevent any damage to the silo.
Furthermore, these systems are easy to install and use. All the components needed for safety can be purchased, and you can count on our dedicated technical support team for any queries or issues.
Lastly, the SHIELD Lite system is integrated with Hycontrol’s Safety App, which enables remote monitoring and control of the silo from any mobile device. This ensures complete peace of mind while allowing you to closely monitor your operations.
