Question: We have a number of your 1650 cu/ft flour trailers. Do you have a recommended wash procedure that you can provide? We are having problems with product getting in the aerators and turning to dough. Thanks – Rick
Answer: Unfortunately we do not have a recommended procedure for cleaning the inside of the trailer. However, I do believe in this situation the aerator itself has come loose and the internal wear pad has rotated inside. We recommend hand-tightening the aerators once a week to help prevent the wear pad from turning. At this point you will need to drop the line, discharge valve and loosen the aerator. Then you need to reach up inside the tank and turn the wear pad to its original location. Finally hand-tighten the aerator, re-install valve and piping. Thanks for the question.
Question: How do you clean the inside of an aluminum cement tanker with a lot of build-up on the sides? Dave
Answer: Dave, there is no quick way to do this. If a trailer is allowed to build up hardened cement on the inside, you are limited to chipping and scraping the material out. We would advise removing the piping to avoid contamination of future loads.
