What is a portable cement pig?

A portable cement 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, a cement pig usually has a higher capacity than a traditional cement silo or storage container.

Traditional cement silos versus cement pig

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.
