US Farm Systems - Wastewater Processing Equipment
Innovation & Service for More Than 35 Years

Company Description:

US Farm Systems is a pioneer in dairy waste water and manure handling equipment, with a complete system exceeding the most demanding waste handling needs. With systems designed and manufactured for dairy cows, hog facilities, fish hatcheries, food waste processing, irrigation, and digesters, US Farm Systems is an international company with diverse experience to meet their customers’ needs.

Technology Description:

A US Farm Systems separation system reduces water usage, odors, and produces separated solids that can be repurposed as bedding for cows or compost for fertilizer. Heavy duty pumps and agitators send well-mixed solids over sets of curved sloped screen separators. The separated solids moisture content is reduced by a screw press, dewatering conveyor, or roller press and then stacked for processing. The effluent from the screen separators can be further separated prior to being reused for irrigation or flushing.
