Slurry injection system claims less disturbance
REDUCED surface damage and pasture disturbance are claimed by Chavtrac for its latest Veenhuis shallow slurry injection system fitted to the Tanka 410 self-propelled slurry tanker.
Using contoured disc rollers instead of soil-engaging tines, the Veenhuis system forms 10cm (4in) channels on the surface, into which slurry is pumped.
Channel depth is regulated by an electronically-controlled hydraulic system which applies constant pressure to the disc roller assembly.
Potential output of the system is said to be up to 450,000-litres/day, and the inclusion of a macerator in the distribution head is claimed to lend the unit to farm and industrial waste products.
Chavtracs Tanka 410 equipped with the 3m (10ft) wide, 16-unit shallow injection system costs £62,200. The injection system can be retro-fitted to existing Chavtrac Tankas at a cost of £14,700.n
