While mixing, filling and washing your equipment you run the risk of plant protection products ending up in wrong places. Implementing a filling & washing area can prevent residual plant protection products flowing into surface waters. A fixed area where all handling of plant protection products takes places, reduces these risks to a minimum. Moreover, a fixed filling & washing area offers the opportunity to optimise these processes, by combining it with rainwater storage for instance.

Modular solution

A filling & washing area has to meet your farm’s needs. The design is influenced by many factors. Amongst others the way your farmyard is laid out, driving directions, size of your equipment and any possible plans for the future are of importance when choosing a location. The location needs to meet today’s requirements but also any that might crop up in the future. With all of this in mind, Beutech Agro offers a high-quality and flexible solution. Our modular composite flooring sheets can be applied in many configurations. Combined with increased strength and chemical resistance this is truly a strong alternative for concrete and other materials.

The flooring sheets can be laid out on any subsoil, as long as it has sufficient bearing capacity. All that is needed is a levelling with some slant, reducing the amount of required groundwork to a bare minimum. The filling & washing area can also be placed on existing paved areas and is easily expanded or relocated if that proves to be necessary in the future.

In order to offer a complete system, we also deliver splash walls, ramps, fuel & oil separators, coalescence separators, etc.
