Sileage Effluent Tanks

Farmers have a duty to avoid causing pollution and provide installations, which minimise the risk of farm effluents polluting watercourses. The Regulations are being enforced by the Environment Agency (EA) and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA). Klargester Silage Effluent Tanks fully meet these Regulations.

  • Proven durability - tanks conform to ADAS specification, i.e. maintenance free design life of 20 years minimum.
  • Corrosion resistant - special resins used in the Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) tank construction provide a more effective barrier than brick or concrete to silage liquor or slurry (if stored together)
  • One piece pre-fabricated construction - eliminates risk of leakage through joints made on site.
  • Quality construction – manufactured under an ISO 9002 Quality Management System, these tanks are structurally robust, rot and leak-proof for below ground installation.
  • Available in a wide range of capacities - from 9000 litres (2000 gallons) to 54550 litres (12000 gallons) - see table for our standard range.

Each installation must be considered on its own merits based on the estimated volume of silage effluent produced. The Regulations outline the minimum capacity of an effluent collection system, relative to the silo capacity.

In the majority of cases these capacities should provide at least two days storage at peak flow for wilted silage stored in a covered silo. As moisture content and climatic conditions are so variable, guidance should always be sought from the EPA,

Klargester silage effluent tanks are available in a range of sizes from 9000 litres (2000 gallons) up to 54,500 litres (12,000 gallons), for installation in wet or dry ground.
