SHIELD Lite Silo Protection System Launched!

Two years after introducing the ground-breaking SHIELD silo protection system, silo pressure safety experts Hycontrol Ltd are proud to announce the launch of the SHIELD Lite SPS, which protects powder storage silos from the dangers caused by excessive pressure during tanker deliveries. Utilising purpose-designed, state-of-the-art pressure monitoring and control equipment, SHIELD Lite meets and exceeds best engineering practice and current guidance from the Mineral Products Association. The new, compact panel is designed for simple operation and to be easily understood, giving users a range of new monitoring and diagnostic tools and indicating when the system is suffering from blocked filtration or is being endangered by poor delivery driver behaviour. 

“Building on the success of the first SHIELD system has allowed us to develop new tools for site personnel to improve safety,” said Hycontrol Managing Director, Nigel Allen. “We have insisted for many years that simplicity is the key to safety, and now with developments like ratio alarms, filter blockage warnings and tanker driver delivery behaviour diagnostics, we can effectively remove the risk of human error completely. Hycontrol has led the silo protection field for more than a decade through both innovation and product performance. The purpose of developing SHIELD Lite is to make sure that every single pressurised powder delivery into every single silo is completely safe. We anticipate that customers in the ready-mix and concrete sectors will be impressed by both what this new system can do and the price we are able to offer it at.” 

He adds: “We are determined that safety for staff, contractors and drivers should be the number one priority across all industries. With SHIELD Lite, Hycontrol is showing that true, failsafe silo safety is not only achievable but with the right equipment, it’s easy, too. We understand that human errors in maintenance and testing are inevitable. Our philosophy is to accept this and to provide a system that monitors and safely alerts you when these errors occur. As we say – safe silos are tested every time.”
