New for 2008, the World Ag Expo is selecting the Top Five New Dairy Products being exhibited at the event and there is a manure handling item in the list.
The Sand Trap, manufactured by Accent Manufacturing of Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, removes bedding sand from sand laden manure that has been previously separated by the Accent IFRS 36 Separator. The product is designed for herds of one to 500 cows and captures up to 95 percent of the sand in sand laden manure. Removing the sand reduces handling problems and produces reusable sand. First, the fiber is removed by Accent’s IFRS 36. The remaining sand-liquid mixture flows tangentially into the Sand Trap. Cyclonic action spins the sand out and causes the sand to separate from the effluent; these separated sand particles then fall to the bottom of the cone chamber. The sand, which is removed by an auger, passes through a skimmer, removing any remaining fiber and excess liquid. The end result is clean, low moisture sand.
The 2008 Top Five New Dairy Products – which also include the Bella Health System from Bella Health Systems, the HI 84429 from Hanna Instrument, Multimin cattle 70mg from Multimin USA, and the Shifttronic three speed gearbox from Trioliet Mullos BV – will be unveiled during the Expo’s Media Day on February 11.
The 2008 Top Five were chosen by a panel of industry professionals and dairymen as the newest, most innovative dairy products to be displayed at the expo.
