Floating Covers

Enviroseal Helping Farmers with Ammonia Reduction Grant Scheme

Enviroseal are supporting beef and dairy farmers who are applying for grant funding for floating covers for slurry lagoons. Our floating covers are designed with the principals of simplicity and practicality to ensure the farmers can use the lagoon as effectively as possible.

The company have designed and installed floating covers for slurry lagoons across the country for several years.

  • The material used for the cover complies with SSAFO regulations 2010
  • The covers are rainproof and do not allow rain water to mix with slurry
  • Design life for the covers exceeds 25 years
  • It is completely secured to avoid wind damage

With our experience in the agricultural industry we recognise that the requirements of each individual farmer are different and how the use of the lagoon differs from farm to farm. We can incorporate bespoke fittings in to the cover for elements such as inlet & outlet pipes, sumps, and ventilation. Enviroseal can also design and install agitation/stirring systems for the lagoon.

Enviroseal provide a 25 year warranty on all materials and installations.

Slurry Lagoons

Floating covers prevents Rainwater from mixing with the slurry which reduces the
Loss of nitrogen from the liquid, and maximises the storage capacity.
The cover also acts as a barrier from any unwanted debris, I.e. bird droppings, leaves, dirt; this stops the contamination of the liquid.

Importantly by covering the lagoon this stops odours that could cause problems if close to residential areas or nearby villages and Towns.

The design of Enviroseals floating cover means that all welded joints will be either air tested or vacuum box tested, we also install integral floats and gas vents.

The new legislation means that all new and enlarged slurry storage lagoons must be covered before they are used.

All existing Slurry lagoons uncovered can continue until 2020, but a written plan must be sent to the Environment Agency detailing a proposal for replacing or covering them, as
All existing Slurry Lagoons must be covered by 2020.Water Reservoirs.

Floating covers for use in drinking water reservoirs are to protect the water from being contaminated, by rainwater, Dirt, Bird droppings, leaves Etc.

Floating covers also prevent evaporation and growth of algae and unwanted organisms.
