If your business requires temporary storage of cement or other materials at a job site, then the portable cement pig rental might be the perfect solution.
Cement pigs are pneumatic trailers that are uniquely designed for materials hauling and temporary on-site storage. Primarily, cement pigs have a larger storage capacity and are easier to use than traditional cement silos. Overall, the cement pig is perfect for high-volume jobs.

What is the Portable Cement Pig?
The portable cement pig is a horizontal job site bulk storage container that can be kept onsite for on-demand cement that is protected against the elements. Like a traditional cement silo, a cement pig is ideal for large-scale, high-volume jobs that require a lot of cement. A cement pig usually has a higher capacity than a traditional cement silo or storage container.
Traditional Cement Silo vs. Cement Pig
A traditional cement silo stands upright and generally is planted at a job site where it will remain on-site until the job is completed. While it holds anywhere from 20-80 tons of cement, these will work well for smaller jobs. Conversely, the standard silo has an adequate capacity for a building site, it is not quite efficient enough for a high-volume job.
Portable cement pigs are portable silos that hold up to 140 tons of cement, which is nearly double the capacity of a standard silo, and is more suitable for large jobs such as highways, bridges, dams, airport runways, and any other huge project that requires a lot of cement. A traditional silo is likely stationary throughout the duration of a job, where a cement pig is mobile and has the capability to be moved to various locations during the course of a project.

- Fly Ash
