Slurry Channels can reduce costs for farmers by channelling effluent into one tank rather than investing in a series of tanks.
As long as there is water in the channels the weight of the slurry will force it to float on top of the water along the channel.
An end piece will always keep 18 inches of water within the channel system.
Our Mini Channels are Ideal for around a milking parlor or a calf house.
The channel dimensions are 2 m ( 6 ft 7 in) long by 675 mm ( 2 ft 3 in ) wide by 575 mm (1 ft 11 in ) high. The channel walls are 100 mm ( 4 in ) thick and they weigh 900 kgs.
Our Channels fit neatly together using a grooved system. We recommend a sealer like Sikaflex to seal the channel joints.
Our channels have thick walls and are reinforced with fiber mesh and steel.
We do not use ready-mix. All our concrete is mixed in our specialised batching plant.
There is an Excellent finish and smooth surface to ensure the slurry flows steadily through our channels.
We supply Slurry channels with a diagonal slotted Lid.
The lids are 2 m ( 6 ft 7 In ) Long by 690 mm ( 2 ft 3 in ) Wide and are 175 mm ( 7 In ) thick. They weigh approx. 400 kgs.
Four 16 mm diameter Lifting Sockets are built into both the channels and the lids. This enables the channels and the lids to be laid quickly.
Lifting Loops are provided.
The Slotted Lid is suitable for use with scraper systems. We find that most customers prefer slotted lids so they can clean into them with a scraper.
