Solid-liquid Separation of Swine Manure with Polymer Treatment and Sand Filtration

  title={Solid-liquid Separation of Swine Manure with Polymer Treatment and Sand Filtration},
  author={Mat{\'i}as B. Vanotti and John M. Rice and Aprel Q Ellison and Patrick G. Hunt and Frank J. Humenik and Craig L Baird},
Small particles typical of liquid swine manure often clog sand filter beds and fine filters. We evaluated the effectiveness of polymer flocculants to improve drainage and filtration performance of sand filter beds by increasing the particle size of manure. A pilot separation unit was evaluated at the Swine Unit of the NCSU Lake Wheeler Road Laboratory in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 40 consecutive cycles during a 20-month period. The unit consisted of a homogenization tank that mixed the flushed… CONTINUE READING
