Explosions can be a major cause of damage to grain storage facilities. Batterton has extensive experience in the repair of grain elevators that have been damaged by explosions.
Several steps are involved in the repair of explosion damage. First, the damaged concrete must be removed so surrounding solid concrete can serve as anchor points for the new gunite wall. Secondly, rebar is secured to existing concrete, then the area is formed and gunited back to the original state. Finally, painting and surface finishing restore the elevator to its former condition.
