A farming company running a dairy farm are using AKO Pinch Valves for farming slurry, product code VMC80.03X.50G.30LX, as part of a highly focused energy efficient plant.
The farm runs a diary herd of 125 cattle with an additional 105 youngstock, and an Aerobic Digester producing energy for the farm and the grid.
The farm aims to use carbon neutral fuel wherever possible. The anaerobic digester has a 800 cubic metre tank, recycling a trio of 7 tonnes of nutrient rich cattle manure, 8 tonnes of maize silage and whey from the cheese making every day. As well as electrical generation, enough heat energy is produced to run their cheese factory, heat the farmhouse, office and dairy water as well as the grain dryer and workers dwellings.
