Sand-Manure Separation

Sand bedding provides a healthy environment for cows, keeping them cleaner, thereby aiding in maximizing overall cow comfort and ultimately enhancing dairy profitability.

When sand is mixed with manure, the manure stream becomes abrasive, difficult to agitate and pump, and expensive to land apply. McLanahan Sand-Manure Separation Systems utilize proven sand-processing technology to separate sand from manure. Separating the two produces clean recycled sand that is suitable for reuse within days. The resulting manure effluent containing water, manure fibers, and all the manure nutrients can be further processed through a Liquid-Solid Separation System.

McLanahan Corporation Sand-Manure Separation Systems are also designed to achieve sufficient sand recovery to enable manure waste to be processed through anaerobic digesters, as well as other treatment systems requiring high sand recovery.
