The need to store dairy effluent for longer periods has induced closer attention to the management of entire effluent systems. By quantifying water consumption of dairy sheds there is usually the ability to reduce fresh water use significantly. Options, including the recycling of green water for backing gate operation and the introduction of a closed circuit plate cooling system, can collectively offset water use in some sheds by up to 60%.
One satisfied customer has gone from producing 120,000 litres to 50,000 litres per day, ultimately creating far less effluent which costs less to process, store and apply to pasture and crops. There are multiple options available for solids separation, each of which can be quantified with the intention of providing the most reliable and robust system, giving you peace of mind for the years ahead.
We offer a free design service with an obligation free qoute. If you have a preferred earthmoving contractor, we’re more than happy to utilise their skills or, we can provide one for you. Sustainable Water is fully independant allowing us to custom build your effluent system for optimal efficiency. We can supply and install both HDPE Geomembrane and Geosynthetic Clay pond lining solutions.
Effluent Storage with HDPE Liner
ATARFIL HD is a premium grade smooth HDPE geomembrane liner that exhibits outstanding chemical resistance, exceptional ultraviolet light resistance and excellent tensile properties. It is suited for applications requiring superior chemical resistance in exposed or covered applications. This high density polyethelene liner is manufactured in seamless widths of 7.0m and a thickness of 1.5mm.
Effluent Storage with Geosynthetic Clay Liner
Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL) is made from quality polypropylene geotextiles and premium grade sodium bentonite powder . GCL’s are fibre-reinforced by needle-punching the composite across the entire surface area of the product. Some benefits of a Geosynthetic liner are:
- The ability to clean out and stir your pond without compromising the lining membrane’s integrity.
- Equivalent to 1 metre of clay.
- More flexibility around installation conditions.
- No issues with UV degradation.
- Competitively priced against any other lining system.
