Compact “Plug & Play-lightweight“ for farm communities or farms with several slurry tanks
With the new Plug & Play S300 the Bauer Group, situated in Styria, and technology leader in the area of Waste-Water-Management, presents a small and mobile Separator-System for farmers or groups of farmers. As with the other already available models, all components are connected with each other within a narrow space: from the feeding pump and the wiring over to the electronic control system. A small space miracle with enormous power, which, once connected to the socket, immediately and efficiently separates the solid from the liquid phase.
For more than 4 years, the Austrian Bauer Group, situated in Voitsberg, has offered their solutions in the separator market as compact complete packaged systems. Under the heading “Plug & Play“, separators are combined with feed pumps, effluent pumps, electronic control systems as well as complete wiring and piping, all within a minimal space. The advantage: due to the forklift pockets integrated in the frame, the complete unit can be moved with a farm loader and brought to any place required, in order to manage several slurry tanks flexibly. Once connected to the power supply, the system is ready for operation. The system is very versatile and is suitable for example for substrate extraction in biogas plants or the recycling of waste in the food industry.
The Separator S300, now the smallest unit, complements the three models available so far, the S655 / 655 HD, S855 / 855 HD and 855 GB. Thomas Kampl, head of development and product manager for separation technology of the Bauer Group explains: “By expanding the “Plug & Play”-family we consciously follow the path we have taken, to adapt our solutions also for small structured businesses. We would like to give all farms the opportunity to profit from the advantages of separation – and that at an optimal price/performance ratio.”
Performance despite „Light weight“
The Plug & Play S300 does not have to hide from its big siblings: it separates up to 15 m³ per hour; the dry matter content in the solid phase produced, is about 32 percent. Compared to the Plug & Play 855 GB with 1.900 kg the weight of the S300 is only 700 kg.
The separator is controlled via an automatic pressure control and a wired remote control. “The ‘Plug & Play‘ variety of the S300 ensures good functionality, even with media which is difficult to separate. Due to the high quality components of Bauer, the system has a very long service life“, Kampl explains the advantages of this product innovation.
Additionally, Bauer offers an optional overflow for these systems, as well as a separate effluent pump. In case the clear phase cannot run-off, but has to be pumped into an elevated tank, this pump reaches discharge heads of up to 100 meters. At the Bavarian FAN Separator GmbH, a subsidiary of the Bauer Group, the “Plug & Play“-System is available under the name PSS 1.1 300.
