Stone and Sand Traps

Stone and Sand Traps
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
Every Farm Dairy Effluent (FDE) system requires a sand trap, and if they are maintained and regularly cleaned, they will provide a substantial return on investment.

Sand traps prevent:

  • Sand, stones and other material that causes pumps to wear out quickly
  • Blockages in dairy effluent lines and irrigator nozzles
  • A build-up of unwanted sediment in sumps and ponds

There are two main types of stone/sand traps - standard and drive-though. It is important to locate the stone/sand trap in an area where it is easy to clean and maintain, and allows for gravity feed to the next stage in the system. Choosing the correct size sand trap is important and can be determined by various factors including herd size.
