This webinar provides viewers with an understanding of the principles of solid-liquid separation of manure and wastewater and includes description of separator efficiency, solid screening, and solid settling.
View this webinar to receive an explanation of the science behind manure solid-liquid separation, understand the key characteristics of animal manure as impacted by manure handling and facility management, and learn about concentration reduction and mass removal efficiency to evaluate liquid-solid separation performance. The webinar is supported with multiple examples of dairy and swine operations, and it concludes with an extensive overview of the principles behind mechanical screening and gravity settling of manure solids.
