San-Con builds concrete silos primarily via the jump form method. Our system allows us to construct large diameter silos in an externally safe and cost effective manner. Unlike some other jump form systems, our system does not leave pockets in the silo wall interior. Our system also feature a fully decked work platform allowing our crews to work on the main work deck without worrying about leading edges - there aren't any! The extra decking also allows for more storage capacity of material at the work elevation.
The jump-form method can have significant advantages over other methods of silo construction. The system is self-contained and sets up in a matter of days vs weeks for some other systems. Jump-forming also allows for all-daytime construction. No round-the-clock pours to disrupt your plant schedule! Since our system is a fixed (non-moving) system, quality control during concrete placement, embeds, openings, and rebar placement is much easier than on moving (slip) systems.
