Storage and Handling Guide for Liquid feed

Liquid Feed is delivered in bulk loads up to 30 tonnes. Tanks should be built to hold and dispatch bulk liquids, with at least 35 tonnes capacity to take in the load while there is still some product in the tank.

Loads are pumped from the delivery truck, either by using the top door or by pumping in through the outlet pipe. If your tank is underground, the top door is adequate. However, if your tank is free standing in your yard, then only deliver using the outlet pipe. If your tank is underground, make sure you put in a pump that can pump sufficient quantity. It is important the fittings on the outlet of your tank match the delivery vehicles or that you have an adaptor available.

Setting Up Your Tank

The tank should be angled towards the outlet to stop sediment build up and for ease of cleaning. Some tanks come with self-cleaning systems, but most tanks need to be washed with an approved disinfectant and a power hose. Make sure you wear a mask if you have to go into the tank and have someone to help you should you get into trouble.

If you are putting up your tank outside, then it must be insulated, have an agitator, and sufficiently raised so that the diet feeder can get under the outlet. Liquid Feed is delivered hot so be careful around the tank directly after it’s delivered.
