Technology Strengths,Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Slope Screen technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
  • Used extensively on dairies across the country to reduce concerns associated with storage and application
  • Do not significantly reduce nutrients from the manure stream
  • Can utilize many types of technology like slope screen, screw press, rotary drum and others
  • Used before many other technologies to remove coarse solids
  • Minimal maintenance and operator time required
  • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, storage reduction, GHG reduction, and odor control but with limited impact in all cases

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Coarse solids separation technologies:

  • Produces fiber for bedding, soil amendment and compost
  • Used extensively on dairies across the country to reduce storage and application concerns
  • Does not significantly reduce nutrients from the manure stream
  • Can utilize many types of technology like slope screen, screw press, rotary drum and others
  • Used before many other technologies to remove coarse solids
  • Minimal maintenance and operator time required

 

Formed in 1962, AgPro has a long track record of manufacturing reliable gravity based solid liquid separation equipment for dairy farms.  With hundreds of separators on farms in the U.S., AgPro is a market leader in coarse solid liquid separation equipment.  Gravity based separation systems work well on dilute manure streams resulting from flush collection or sand separation systems.  Bedding sand removal is recommended for gravity separators with moving parts.  Screen glazing can be an issue depending on water quality and biofilm growth, but is easily addressed by routine cleaning and maintenance.  

 

Newtrient is working to collect performance data for the AgPro solid liquid separation technology to develop an independent case study and will continue to work with them to further refine the cost and performance information as more information comes in with new commercial dairy installations.
