The hydraulic power pack is driven by a low consumption electric motor and the whole system is controlled by a user friendly electronic control panel which the farmer can easily set to operate on both Manual and Auto functions. The Auto function can be set to operate at various hourly intervals throughout the 24 hour cycle. For optimum safety and function, electronics control critical situations with sensors to regulate load, automatic locking – in the case of a forced stop, and safety reverse.

Slurry Aeration

Creating more value out of thin air

The Dairypower Slurry Aeration System is now established as being the most cost effective and environmentally friendly method of keeping slurry in a homogenous pumpable state that is always ready to spread. The introduction of air into the storage tank has two main effects on the slurry – that of effective mixing caused by the physical action of rising air bubbles, and that of odour reduction of the promotion of aerobic bacteria which digest toxins, fatty acids and ammonia and reduce the biological oxygen demand of the slurry.

READ MORE

The system is relatively simple because it employs a low energy consumption electric motor and roots blower pump, electric rotary valves and sdf-closing neoprene non-return outlet valve. All the piping is 50mm class D uPVC which neither corrodes nor degrades. Working on a time switch, the system is fully automatic and would typically run for 3 – 4 periods each day without any need for human intervention. Furthermore, the running costs have been shown by independent evaluation to be as low as €1 per day. In the event of a tank being neglected, the Slurry Aeration System installation is perfectly capable of mixing heavily crusted slurry. The Dairypower Slurry Aeration System can be installed in concrete tanks, slurry stores and lagoons.
  • Aeration enhances the health of your effluent
  • Reduces slurry odour and stops crusting for easier management
  • Aeration breakdowns the slurry further increasing its fertilizer value
  • Effluent is always ready for distribution to fields
  • Simplifies effluent management
  • Creates value and save time and money
