Flow Meters for Liquefied Manure Measurement

Commercial livestock operations generate a significant amount of manure byproduct. The manure is sometimes sprayed in a liquefied form over agricultural fields as a fertilizer in between planting seasons.

The equipment used for spraying consists of a skid-mounted pumping system that pulls the liquefied manure from a holding pond and pumps it through a hose (drag line) to a tractor-mounted applicator. The applicator has a row of tools that create furrows in the ground into which the manure is sprayed.
