Diverters are essential when wanting to minimise the amount of rainfall entering the dairy effluent system at certain times throughout the year. Hi-Tech have a range of manual, semi-automatic, and automatic diverters for both 100mm and 150mm pipe.
The PVC Manual diverters require someone to go over to the diverters to actually open or close them. These are ideal where you may want to divert the yard and other area while the herd is dried off, as they rely on someone to ensure they are set correctly, especially when the cows are on the yard.
The semi-automatic brass diverters can be opened or shut at the shed by simply turning a handle which makes them a lot easier to operate.
The automatic brass diverters can be set up to operate automatically when the shed plant is turned on and off for example, thereby eliminating some risk associated with manual or semi-automatic diverters.
