ODOUR CONTROL & METHANE GAS COLLECTION
When you are growing cattle you need a manure management plan. Manure produces unpleasant odour but it also produces methane gas, which can be collected and used for other purposes.
SEEPAGE & EVAPORATION CONTROL
Many agricultural applications waste unnecessary amounts of water every year. A proper seepage and evaporation control system prevents loss of water and loss of money.
Tanks are not always the best solution for a water storage situation. That is why many professionals in the sector are turning to lined ponds and floating covers as an alternative.
Biogas Collection Covers
These covers collect biogas, which can be used to generate heat, electricity, or flared for odour control or carbon credits. These covers have a unique weight system to stabilize against the wind and they are very quick to install.
Odour Control Covers
These covers are primarily used for swine manure. They prevent the evaporation of volatile particles, effectively trapping all odour-causing chemicals inside. These covers can be opened for agitation and to pump water out.
Aquaguide Floating Baffles
Baffle curtains are used in wastewater treatment. They eliminate short-cutting in the treatment pond. This ensures that all water has had the required time for biological breakdown of the effluent.
If you have an open-topped tank, these covers are economical. Instead of opting for an expensive, structural steel roof, you can use one of our tank covers. These covers accomodate level changes and can be removed or pulled back for an easy pump-out. They help control odours and evaporation.
These types of covers are specifically designed to prevent the loss of heat and keep water temperatures at a constant level. They are mainly used to protect heat sensitive bacteria or optimize the collection of biogas in combination with one of our biogas collection covers.
Geotube® Sludge Dewatering Tubes
Farmers and growers have benefited from Geotube® dewatering technology for water processing and effluent water lagoon, tank and digester cleanouts. Geotube® sludge dewatering technology is one of the most versatile and effective sludge dewatering technologies available, and can achieve volume reductions of up to 90%, with high solid levels that facilitate removal and disposal.
Evaporation Control Covers
Our water supplies are becoming more scarce every year and it’s more important to protect and preserve the water supplies we have. Evaporation is one of the major causes of water loss in the agricultural sector. Our floating covers protect water supplies and are an inexpensive solution to store large volumes of agricultural and raw water.
Irrigation and Canal Liners
There’s three ways to control seepage in irrigation applications: a clay system, a concrete system and a geomembrane liner. Clay systems only reduce the amount of seepage of irrigation water into the groundwater, and concrete systems are usually very expensive to implement. More and more professionals opt for geomembranes to waterproof irrigation canals. Layfield fabricates canal liners for short, mid and long-term irrigation applications.
Enviro Liner® 6000 Geomembrane
Enviro Liner® 6000 (EL 6000) is a flexible geomembrane liner designed for outstanding durability, chemical resistance and flexibility. EL 6000 has been thoroughly tested for fish safety and works well in most aquaculture applications.
EPDM is one of the most flexible liners available on the market today. With its excellent UV life and cold temperature performance, it is suited for most fish ponds and is usually chosen as an inexpensive alternative to polymer-based geomembranes liners.
