Manure separators, also known as slurry or liquid/solid separators, are equipment designed to separate the solid and liquid components of animal manure. They are commonly used in livestock operations to manage and process manure efficiently. By separating the solids from the liquid, manure separators offer key benefits to today’s dairy farmers.
Separating manure allows for better control and management of nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus which are present in the liquid segment. This makes for easier application to crops as a fertilizer and helps reduce the risk of over application. Separating the solid and liquid portions of manure also makes for easier transport. The liquid portion can be pumped and can be distributed by dragline systems and spreaders while the solid fraction can be used for bedding or composting.
Twin Clover Equipment has partnered with GEA and AL-INS for our separating equipment for a number of reasons.
