Welcome to Vibe PanelTM

Vibrations clear blocked slots to de-water containment and reduce labour intensity

In recent years, feed pads and standoff areas on dairy farms have become increasingly popular due to their various benefits, however they greatly increase pressure on the farm's effluent system. In order to keep up with increased solids, weeping walls are used to alter debris before effluent containment, but can be troublesome and labour taxing when the screens blind off, hindering fluid from passing through the walls. To prevent overflow and potential environmental hazards, farmers are required to manually empty the product and spread to pasture, which is incredibly time-consuming and costly, particularly during wetter months. 

We recognised this was an area of frustration for farmers and so created a simple and effective product, The Vibe Panel - vibrating weeping wall.

The Vibe Panel is a vertical passive separation screen, or put simply, a vibrating weeping wall. Vibrations travel down the horizontal panels to clear blocked slots, which then causes the containment to de-water. The vibration allows effluent to move easily through the slots and into containment, ready for irrigation to pasture. The Vibe Panel unblocks screens and drastically decreases labour intensity for customers who capture higher quality effluent and no longer have to spend as much time managing bunkers. Recent tests have shown that installing even a single panel has proved a huge success.

Customers who have had the Vibe Panel installed have been amazed by the quick results and impressed by how much it has lessened their work load.

Vibe Panel Successfully Clearing Blocked Weeping Wall

"Tihiroa Dairies Ltd invested in an upgrade to the effluent system on our new 800 cow Waitomo Farm.  The decision was made to put in two concrete sumps containing weeping walls. After a short period of time, the sumps were full and the walls weren't able to keep up with the demands put upon it.  After discussing the problem, we decided to replace a section of the weeping wall with a new stainless Vibe Panel.  The system is working very well, the sumps are keeping up with the capacity, and only need to be emptied twice a year, unlike the old system which we were cleaning out every two months."
