Slurry Separation

Bauer 655 & 855 Separator

Economical use of existing resources with up to date technologies.
Farms with high animal concentrations are faced with great problems due to the large amounts of slurry. 


This applies particularly to farms with a high stock per unit of area. Existing legal requirements aggravate the situation.

For this reason, slurry must be treated adequately. Customary slurry treatment systems are time consuming, labor intensive and require enormous investments, too.

Solids re-used for bedding and liquid fraction re-used for flushing. The Bauer separator converts slurry into a valuable fertilizer. Fully automatic separation that means splitting up slurry into a liquid and a solid fraction – offers great advantages.

The thin slurry remaining can be distributed any time without any sophisticated homogenizing techniques. The odorless solid fraction is easy to store without any problems.  

High-precision components, Constantly high throughput, Low wear costs due to long service life. Easy adjustment and low maintenance. 5.5kw Motor with heavy duty gearbox, with patented floating screen technology. Throughput up to 25 m3/hr. Dry matter content up to 30% and is suitable for medium size dairy units or small pig units.

  • Pulp & Paper industry

  • Food Processing

  • Biogas / Anerobic Digestion

  • Abattoirs and Meat

  • Processing

FAN Green Bedding

Green Bedding is the use of Separated Undigested Fibre from livestock manure, directly from a separator, as a bedding material for dairy cow cubicles.

Green Bedding was first used by Cornell University in the early 90's and now widely used in the US and Europe.  FAN Green Bedding machines have been in use in the UK for over 12 months.

Developments in FAN PSS separator technology have produced a separator specifically designed to to provide a consistent dry matter percentage of at least 36% whilst maintaining a reliable and highly efficient separation.

When combined with Bauer CSP submersible pump technology and high efficiency mixers Spreadwise are able to put together a highly efficient bedding production system to provide the ultimate in cow comfort.

Benefits of Green Bedding
  • Increased cow comfort

  • Clean Udders and Feet

  • Can lead to reduction in SCC and Mastitis

  • Softer bedding reduces hock sores

  • Improved Cow mobility

  • Drier passageways

  • Dust free - improved breathing for cows and staff

  • Readily available

  • Cost effective

  • Can be used in cubicles or deep beds.

Benefits of Separation

​● Reduced slurry storage requirement

● Eliminates crusting in slurry stores

● Liquid easy to pump, with reduced wear on equipment

● Reduced leaf taint in comparison to spreading whole slurry

● Increased uptake of available nitrogen on growing crops

● Reduction of Total Nitrogen Loading

● Reduction in weed growth as seeds retained in solid
