    Which Slurry Tank is Best For You?

    It can be tricky to know which storage solution is best for you – but we’re here to get it right. Both suited to smaller amounts of waste, the slurry tank you choose all depends on your situation. The steel panel is a weightier, permanent solution that requires planning permission, whereas the steel mesh silo is a speedy, versatile option that can be installed under permitted development*.

    Both are suitable for all types of farmers, whether you operate on a smaller scale or at a mass, commercial level. But if you’re unsure, we’re here to help.

    Slurry tank covers

    In addition to your silage tank, you’ll need something to cover it. Our steel mesh tanks are compatible with a floating cover, an affordable yet durable solution to keeping the weather out of your slurry mix.

    Whereas the steel panel tank has enough rigidity to hold a tensioned cover, which is a harder wearing cover for a more permanent solution. Our covers are optional extras to the tanks we offer – make sure to find out more on the slurry covers page.

    Slurry Tank FAQs

    What is a slurry tank?

    A slurry tank is a container used to store liquid manure or other organic waste materials. They are typically made of durable materials, such as steel, concrete or plastic, and can vary in size depending on the needs of the user.

    How does a slurry tank work?

    Slurry tanks work by holding animal waste mixed with water, slurry, until it can be spread on fields as fertiliser. They may also have mixers or agitators to mix the contents of the tank and prevent the buildup of harmful gases, as well as tank covers to stop the slurry from being diluted.

    What are the advantages of using slurry tanks for slurry storage?

    Where do we begin? Other than maximising your storage capacity, a top-of-the-line slurry tank helps to manage your slurry more efficiently and make the most out of your slurry’s nutrient value – protecting what’s inside from the elements. With a slurry tank, you have greater control over your slurry, all while doing right by the planet, too. Keeping everything controlled within the appropriate slurry storage offers exceptional environmental and public health benefits – helping to prevent pollution, contamination from harmful runoff and unpleasant smells.

    How do you maintain a slurry tank?

    Slurry tanks should be regularly inspected and cleaned to prevent buildup of solids and the formation of harmful gases. Proper ventilation and mixing can also help to reduce odours and prevent the formation of harmful gases.

    How do I determine the capacity or size of a slurry tank I need?

    Determining the capacity or size of a slurry tank you need can be a bit tricky. But fear not, our team of experts will take all the guesswork out of it for you. Factors such as the amount of slurry produced each day, your space, budget and the maze of rules and regulations to comply with must be accounted for. Just give us a call, and we’ll help you determine the size of the tank you need based on your farm’s size and needs. Once we determine the optimal capacity of slurry tank you need, we’ll offer a customised solution that meets the needs of your business.

    What types of slurry tanks are available and which one is best suited for my farm?

    Here at AWSM, we offer bespoke slurry tanks solutions, tailored to your meet your specific needs. From mesh slurry tanks, an adaptable, cost-effective solution, to steel panel tanks, which provide greater strength, durability and protection from the unpredictable British weather, we’ll work with you to get it right. Mesh slurry tanks are easy to assemble and disassemble, potentially better suited to smaller farms, whereas steel panel tanks are a sturdy, permanent solution.
