Trident has been fortunate and honoured to be involved with a group of visionary people that put an unbelievable effort in progressing the state of technology in modern dairy farming. Prairies Edge Dairy and Midwestern Bio Ag have been working on a game-changing project that allows the concentration of nutrients from dairy cow manure to produce an organic-based fertilizer at commercial scale. On June 16, 2017 Midwest Bio-Ag invited to an Open House at the new Fertilizer Plant to celebrate the project completion, showcase process details and present its TerraNu fertilizer products.
A successful day one is wrapped up at World Pork Expo in Des Moines. Many hog farmers have connected with us to learn about ways to improve lagoon management and reduce their operational costs. Truck washout application is also a topic in many conversations and the Trident Rotary Screen is proven to be an excellent system for this kind of solid-liquid separation.
The Trident multi-disc dewatering press MD202 is featured in a case study in the June issue of Pumper Magazine. Action Environmental of Fort Wayne, Indiana, specializes in the treatment of wastewater from industrial cleaning, machinery maintenance and remediation. Ed Black, president of Action Environmental, was looking for a solution that would allow further dewatering of the oily sludge produced during their main treatment process. For years, the company has been hauling the sludge to a landfill. Read the case study here.
Trident is going to exhibit at World Pork Expo 2017 on June 7-9 in DesMoines, IA. We will be presenting our solid separation and nutrient recovery technologies and look forward to connecting with the country’s major hog producers. Efficient liquid-solid separation is a key element in improving lagoon management and also the first step in nutrient recovery. The benefits downstream include reduced cost of transportation, better options for land application, improved odour control and biosecurity with cleaner reusable water. Come and meet us in booth AG715. For more event details visit www.worldpork.org.
Trident recently expanded their line of sludge dewatering equipment with a high capacity MD Press 454. The MD 454 is Trident’s largest dewatering press. A single unit can process 250,000 gpd with up to 4,000 lbs ds/min throughput. The press features four dewatering cylinders, each powered by a 1.5KW motor. The cylinders are strategically designed to allow efficient thickening and dewatering in a single operation. Maintenance requirements are drastically reduced due to its self-cleaning design. Trident recommends a 10,000 hr service interval.
