Gravity Solids Separation:
A gravity settling basin may be less costly while removing 50 percent or more of the solids from liquid manure.
Solids can be settled and filtered by a shallow basin (2 to 3 feet deep) with concrete floors and walls and a porous dam or perforated pipe outlet.
Basins should allow access by a front-end loader to remove solids every 1 to 2 months.
