"Smaller & Smarter" was Donaldson's motto when designing the new SVU series of silo's vents.
Operating and maintaining silo covers can be time-consuming, dirty and involving risks of working at great heights. Donaldson wanted to reduce the risk level associated with silo cover manoeuvring by reducing its height, reducing weight, while maintaining a full weather-proof covering and closing system.
