Dairy Facility
The types of digesters suitable for a dairy farm include:
RCM's mission to provide the best digester for farm
depends on the climate and manure collection.

Flush collected dairy manure is best digested in a
Covered
Lagoon Digester.
If special solids concentrating equipment
are used, or flush water is extremely low, a
Complete Mix
Digester
can be used.
Scrape collected manure is best digested in either Plug Flow Digester or Complete Mix
Digester
. A Plug Flow Digester requires undiluted dairy manure.  A Complete Mix Digester can
handle manure plus parlor water.

Manure mixed with sand presents a special engineering problem that RCM will review with the
farm.
