If your business requires temporary storage of cement or other bulk materials at a jobsite, a portable cement pig rental might be the perfect solution.

Portable cement pigs are pneumatic trailers uniquely designed for hauling bulk materials and temporary onsite storage. Primarily, these bulk storage vessels have a larger storage capacity and are easier to use than traditional cement silos. Overall, a cement storage pig is perfect for high-volume jobs.

What is a portable cement storage pig?

A portable storage pig is a horizontal bulk storage container that can be kept onsite for on-demand access to cement. Similar to a traditional cement silo, a cement pig is ideal for large-scale, high-volume jobs that require a lot of cement – but with a higher capacity than a traditional cement silo or storage container.

Traditional cement silos versus cement pigs

Traditional cement silos stand upright and are generally planted at a jobsite where they remain until a job is complete. They can holds anywhere from 20-80 tons of cement and work well for smaller jobs. And while standard silos have adequate capacity for larger building sites, they are not always efficient enough for a high-volume jobs.

Portable cement pigs are mobile storage containers able to hold up to 140 tons of cement – nearly double the capacity of a standard silo – and more suitable for large jobs such as highways, bridges, dams, and airport runways. Unlike a traditional stationary silo, a cement pig can be moved to various locations during the course of a project.

What can you put in a cement pig?

Portable storage pigs aren’t just for cement. They can hold a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Fly ash
  • Frac sand
  • Lime
  • Barite
  • Activated carbon
  • Non-corrosive liquids
  • Soda ash
