The Most Cost-Effective Slurry Management System

The slurry management system can be used on cattle, pig and poultry farms. The aeration system has a long-life electric drive unit which operates on a high volume & low pressure basis, this smooth operation doesn’t disturb the animals. The unique fully automatic Dairypower rotary valve aerates a section of the slurry tank for set time periods. This process eliminates the build-up of dangerous gases like methane and hydrogen sulphide, which are associated with manually agitating slurry.

Benefits

  • Cost-Effective - Reduces fertiliser costs: The introduction of oxygen also helps to reduce the loss of nitrogen from the slurry which makes the slurry a more valuable asset, reducing the need for chemical fertiliser
  • Increases Nitrogen Values from as much as 2.7% to 4% when aerated (in dry matter)
  • Increases Ammonia Nitrogen Values as much as 1.4% to 2.4% when aerated (in dry matter)
  • Eliminates the release of dangerous gases such as methane and hydrogen sulphide
  • No need for a tractor agitator and the dangers that accompany it
  • Complete consistency – in the distribution of slurry nutrients
  • System can be retro-fitted to any tank
  • Slurry is in an ideal state to be used with low emission slurry spreading equipment i.e. dribble bar, shallow injection spreader etc.
  • Slurry is maintained in a homogeneous, easy-to-manage state 365 days a year
  • Evenly distributes the slurry nutrients giving complete consistency
  • Grass has a better regrowth rate after spreading
  • Improved palatability of grass

Features

Drive Unit Features

The electric drive unit is designed for a long and trouble-free life with a low noise level. The roots blower pump is protected by a suction filtration system, helping to extend the lifetime of all components. The system operates on a high volume low-pressure basis (5 PSI Approx) so the smooth operation does not disturb the animals. Adjustable air pressure makes it possible to optimise each plant to actual conditions.

Pipework Features

The pipe we use is 50mm class D UPVC which neither corrodes nor degrades. The pipework is fixed to the tank floor by stainless steel brackets and stainless steel bolts. Each supply pipe, feeds an outlet-branch which has self-closing neoprene non-return outlet valves, these open when the air is supplied from the pump.

Rotary Valve Features

Dairypower has now developed and patented a very simple trouble-free electric rotary valve which operates on 24 Volts. The blower pump supplies air through a manifold to the rotary valve which in turn distributes air through the 50mm uPVC piping to an outlet-branch which aerates a section of the slurry tank for a set period of time. The rotary valve then simply rotates to distribute air to the next outlet-branch and continues in sequence until the entire tank is aerated. The introduction of air into the tank has two main effects on the slurry: effective mixing caused by the physical action of rising air bubbles, and odour reduction of the aerobic bacteria which digest toxins, fatty acids and ammonia, reducing the biological oxygen demand of the slurry.

What our Clients have to say...

The Smart Slurry Aeration System has been installed in farms around the world.
High-quality products and excellent customer service drive our business to achieve success.
Here’s what just a few of our many satisfied customers had to say…

In 2016 we put up a new building to house 300 cows. It has 5 slurry tanks each one being 140 feet long. We’re very happy with the Dairypower Slurry Aeration System… you couldn’t work without it in these size tanks. I wouldn’t go away from it for anything… there’s no danger of gases and when you want to spread some slurry all you need to do is back in the tanker and take some loads. It makes handling slurry very economical and very safe.

Nicholas Dollard, Ireland

We are so pleased with our slurry aeration system installed by our local dealer Fjøssystemer Vest AS. We have a 28 Manifold system operated through 3 Rotary Valves… Best slurry ever, as was promised, no need for any kind of propeller before spreading and there’s almost no smell at all. As we now say, “Our aerated slurry is gold!”

Gaute Øvstedal, Norway

With the Dairypower Aeration System there’s no more work in agitating slurry! It’s fantastic to have the option to take out two or three loads of slurry at any time. It makes looking after our smaller paddocks an ease. My system was installed in 2007 and it has worked faultlessly... I wouldn’t and couldn’t be without it!
