What is a slurry tanker?

A Slurry Tanker is a mobile container that can be filled with Slurry at one of the stationary Slurry tanks on the map, and can then take it to a Slurry Field Tank sitting out near the fields being fertilized.

Where are Joskin products made?

Construction of the new production site in Trzcianka (Poland) based on the takeover of the facilities of a local factory.

How does a slurry vacuum pump work?

It uses air in either a positive or negative pressure to suck in or blow out the load of slurry. To fill the tanker, a vacuum is created inside the barrel when the pump is set to remove the air from the barrel. Once the gate valve is opened, this vacuum draws the slurry in through the suction pipe and fills the barrel.

How does a dribble bar work?

The dribble bar is designed to follow ground contour without exerting any downward force onto the ground. This ensures that there is no additional HP requirement to use the dribble bar. One double acting spool valve is required to work the dribble bar with a diverter switch between the folding and macerator functions.

How big is a slurry tanker?

Abbey Machinery make a range of 37 Slurry Tanker models: Standard, Open Top, Recess Premium and Premium Plus, Tandem and Tridem tankers from 4,000 L (900 gal) to 27,000 L (6000 gal).

How heavy is a slurry tanker?

Which pump is used for slurry?

Centrifugal, positive displacement, and vortex pumps can be used for slurry. Centrifugal slurry pumps can have between bearing-supported shafts with split casing or rubber- or metal-lined casing. Configurations include horizontal, vertical suspended and submersible.

What causes a slurry tanker to collapse?

The risk of tanker implosion occurs during the filling operation when a vacuum system is used, which creates an atmospheric pressure difference to either fill or empty the tanker. By creating a vacuum (depression) in the tank, the slurry can be sucked in.

What is a dribble bar for slurry tanker?

The MAJOR Dribble Bar low emission slurry applicator is designed to apply slurry to the soil surface as accurately as possible, while minimising grass contamination and ammonia emissions. This unit has 30 outlets spaced 260mm apart for even and precise distribution of liquid material in long and short grass.

What weight is 1000 gallons of slurry?

4.5 tonnes
Note – 11m3 per hectare = 1,000 gallons per acre. 4.5 tonnes (4,572 Kgs) of dungstead manure are the equivalent weight of 1,000 gallons of slurry.

How many types of slurry are there?

Slurries can broadly be broken down into two types: settling, and non-settling slurries. This characterisation is based on the nature of the solid(s). Non-settling slurries contain solids made up of fine particles, which largely remain in suspension when the applied mixing energy ceases.

What is vacuum in tank?

Definition of vacuum tank : a tank which is used with some internal-combustion engines, into which the fuel (as gasoline) is sucked from the main tank, and from which it flows by gravity to the carburetor usually directly below.

Is dribble bar better than splash plate?

Agriculture accounts for 98% of ammonia emissions in Ireland and land spreading of slurry accounts for almost half of this total. Spreading slurry with a trailing shoe, dribble bar or injector system can reduce the ammonia emissions up to 97% of those emitted with a splash plate.

Which is better trailing shoe or dribble bar?

The dribble bar system works well on both grassland and arable crop, while trailing shoe is often better suited for grassland. The trailing shoe is optimal to apply slurry in heavy clay soil and works well in grass longer than 8cm in height.

How do you spread slurry with dribble bars?

Low emission slurry spreading techniques, such as trailing shoe or dribble bar or umbilical system with a dribble bar place the slurry in bands or lines on the ground, rather than across the entire surface as with the conventional splashplate method.

How much is P and K in slurry?

Slurry is also a very well balanced fertiliser, as its P to K ratio is 1:6, which is ideal for grass silage crops.

What NPK is in cattle slurry?

Fertiliser Value of Slurry The typical value of 1,000 gallons of cattle slurry applied by splash plate in springtime has an available N-P-K content equivalent to a 50kg bag of 6-5-30. The nutrient content of cattle slurry will vary with animal type and diet and especially with slurry dilution with water.

Why do tanks implode?

As the amount of vacuum increases, atmospheric pressure on the outside of the tank is no longer balanced by pressure inside the tank, causing the tank walls to collapse inward. This event is referred to as an implosion.
