STORMWATER DIVERSION

AUTOMATION

Advantages

  • Minimises stormwater entering your effluent system
  • Reduces storage capacity requirements
  • Range of manual, semi-automatic and automatic options to suit your dairy
  • Automatic diverters begin operating when shed plant is turned on
  • Visual cue on control box shows where effluent is going

Diverters are essential when it comes to minimising the volume of stormwater entering the dairy effluent system at certain times throughout the year resulting in reduced storage requirements, pumping & irrigation times and labour.

The PVC Manual diverters require someone to physically open and close the valves before and after milking and during milk collection times. These are ideal where you may want to divert the yard and other areas while the herd is dried off, as they rely on someone to ensure they are set correctly, especially when the cows are on the yard. The valve diameter options range from 100mm up to 300mm

If you are looking to automate the process to further mitigate risk, we have both a semi-automatic and automatic brass diverter which connect to the shed’s air or water supply.

The semi-automatic brass diverters can be opened or shut at the shed by simply turning a handle which makes them a lot easier to operate and saving the trip to the end of the yard to ensure they are set correctly – simply part of the shed start and shut down process.

The automatic brass diverters are fully integrated into the shed plant which operate when the shed plant is turned on and off, along with a manual override for when the yard is in operational for vet checks, thereby mitagating some of the risk associated with manual or semi-automatic diverters.

Environmental Features:
• Reduces storage costs by diverting rainwater away from your effluent system
• Less power and labour used to manage rainwater entering your effluent system
