Effluent Spreading

With the widespread upgrades to cowshed effluent handling and storage systems in recent years, we have learnt a lot in a brief time in terms of how to deal with each type when cleaning out!

From weeping walls to solid separators, saucers, two-pond systems, stone traps and wedges, we have developed a method to deal with each type. Currently between our lagoon stirrer, vacuum tanker, umbilical pipe system, muck spreaders, loaders and diggers we can deal with all kinds of material.

A big winner has been the umbilical pipe system. Its ability to shift massive volumes of liquid and semi-liquid effluent and place it via dribble bar quickly has been very successful. We have found its niche is cleaning out the primary settling pond in two-pond systems. From what we have learnt these should ideally be stirred up and cleaned out every 1-2 years, however we can handle even very solid ponds by using our impeller stirrer to feed the pressure pump. There is always a surprising amount of heavy sludge on the bottom of these ponds, so ideally stirring while pumping is desirable.

Forward planning with cleaning out is helps keep cost down.
