Chocolate & Candy Factory in Northern California Salvages Sugar Silo with CHEMCLAD XC

This world famous chocolate and candy manufacturer, headquartered in San Francisco, California, turned to the ENECON NorCal  team to salvage this severely corroded 40+ year old sugar silo. Replacement would have taken months and cost over $250,000 before demolition and installation costs for a new silo.

The ENECON team suggested grit blasting the silo and then applying two coats of CHEMCLAD XC, which was chosen for its NSF certificate for potable water and unsurpassed corrosion protection.

Furthermore, ENECON NorCal added significant value by minimising downtime, providing a turnkey solution and allowing manufacturing to resume in just a few days.
