Smart Slurry Aeration System
This Co.Louth farm puts slurry management at the top of their priorities, so they also have an 86 manifold Smart Slurry Aeration System as part of their farming set-up.
Installed by Cookstown Dairy Services, Cookstown, Ardee, Co.Louth, a Dairypower approved dealer. Our Smart Slurry Aeration System is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way of keeping your slurry in a constant, homogeneous pumpable state.
Although we love the countryside of Co.Louth, the winters can be quite harsh. With a robust design and a long-life electric drive unit that operates at high volume and low pressure, your slurry is managed effectively, no matter the weather condition.
The Smart Slurry Aeration System features a one-of-a-kind patented rotary valve that supplies air to outlet branches, fixed to the base of the tank. This then sequentially aerates localised areas of the tank for a set period of time. With no need for manual agitation, savings can be made in time, labour and fuel, with the added benefits that this method also keeps your animals safe by preventing the build-up of hazardous gases such as methane and hydrogen sulphide.
