About the Solution:

Agpro’s Extractor line of separators are designed to mate with flush operations and provide separation of waste solids without the use of manure pumps, agitators, collection pits or towers. The unit comes with required motors and controls including an automatic on/off switch. Motor and gearbox are euro style rated for variable speed use. Desired power requirements (phase and voltage) must be specified by customer. An important feature of the extractor is the very low 2-3 hp power requirement.

Solution 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:

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 will continue to work with AgPro to further refine the cost and performance information on their solution. Newtrient will update this entry as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come online.
