The objective of the Sucker is to continuously extract the slurry
from the internal pits of pig farms, so that it can be taken to the
external storage areas from where it can be treated and valorized
on a daily basis, before it starts fermenting.

Let’s improve the image of our farms

The general population has perceived that slurry emissions are
highly polluting and harmful to the health and well-being of living

This can actually occur during the ageing process of the slurry, before
it is treated or applied in the field. The decomposition of the slurry
in storage involves microbial activity that produces and emits a large
part of the polluting compounds that we want to avoid.

The working conditions inside the sheds make it unattractive for labour
and the supply of qualified workers is reduced.

This is why we present a solution that not only improves our welfare
and our image, but also improves the growth of the animals, saves
energy by not having to ventilate so much and, of course, also improves
our welfare.

Sucker is an AGV robot that includes a hoover that absorbs liquid
and solid slurry from pig farms and stores it in an internal tank.

Once it has filled the tank, it automatically moves to an evacuation
point on the farm for emptying, if it is interested in entering
the farm’s treatment process. Once emptied, it returns to the point
where it has stopped and continues cleaning.

To make the equipment more profitable, once the cleaning of the
shed is finished, it automatically leaves the shed and goes through a
cleaning and disinfection system so that the same equipment moves
to the next one to carry out the same work.

The equipment is equipped with batteries that can be charged by
connection to the mains or by solar energy. When the equipment
detects that it has no charge, it automatically moves to the recharging

With this equipment we solve the RD 306/2020 of 11 February on
the management of pig farms, as the emptying will be daily.

  • Incorporate a new process on the farm, inside the sheds, which is where the slurry originates, to solve   the existing problema with the storage of slurry in indoor pits, by extracting it daily.
  • Improve the health and welfare of the animals and their caretakers.
  • To avoid slurry fermentation.
  • Improve the sustainability of pig farms:
-       Practically total reduction of indoor emissions.
-       Reducción Overall reduction of emissions to the outside world.
-       Reduced mortality and increased animal growth.
-       Reduction in water consumption for cleaning and energy consumption for forced ventilation.
  • Improve efficiency and encourage the use of slurry treatment and recovery technologies, reducing the costs of the plant itself and of treatment.
  • To promote the image of a quality, innovative and environmentally friendly industry.
  • To obtain a competitive advantage in the sector at international level, where there is still no technology or procedure that effectively meets all the needs detected in existing farms.
