The Modular SMS12 is a low cost, compact sand separation system to support dairy herd sizes of fewer than 700 cows.
Rob Plank, Global Product Manager for Agriculture Products explains that “by reducing the size of some of our equipment and reconfiguring how we lay the equipment out, we’ve reduced the overall system footprint and equipment cost significantly. We’re hopeful this allows dairies with smaller herds to reap the economic benefits of recycling sand.”
Water and sand and are pumped to the hydrocyclone where it separates the sand and drops it into the sand washer for cleaning. Clean sand discharges from the sand washer onto an optional dewatering screen where a significant portion of the water is removed.
