Effluent Systems & Services

Vortex™ Bladder System

Our bladder systems make removing effluent easy!

The Vortex™ Effluent Bladder System by Precise DE works by encouraging all contents to the central drain hole for easy removal. By installing the bladder on a concave surface, rather than a flat surface, gravity creates a vortex which draws the waste down through the centre drain hole. This is an effective way of achieving complete drainage of the bladder, including any liquid or substantial build-up that may occur around the edges. Bladders are UV protected to increase the life of the product, and they are also ISO 9001-2015 version approved.

Produced by the French manufacturer (RCY) who have spent over 80 years manufacturing products for the dairy effluent industry you can be assured that ample experience and knowledge has been incorporated into developing this cutting edge technology.  Vortex Bladders TM are made in France from high quality, European, Pre-tensioned fibre.  This reinforced fabric delivers extra strength, no stretch, and a reduced weight.

Effluent Stirrers

Taranaki Effluent systems can supply both shore mounted and floating frame-based solutions for your effluent pond. We can also provide and install effluent stirrers which are specially designed for tanks and submersible application. Our powerful stirring models come in various sizes depending on your agitation requirements.

Our stirrers seamlessly fit with other products we supply, such as pumps, separators and automated products.
We can help you to find the correct stirrer for your system, which will avoid effluent from "caking" or forming solids which result in more efficient storage and encourages the flow of effluent during irrigation.

We can supply and service all types of travelling irrigator, from simple dual rotating arm types to the modern travelling cannons.
