Silage effluent resistant floors for bunker forage silos

Silage effluent resistant floors for bunker forage silos

Supplement to the proceedings Engineering advances for agriculture and food Proceedings of the 1938-1988 Jubilee Conference of the Institution of Agricultural Engineers, co sponsored by the Fellowship of Engineering, Robinson College, Cambridge, 12-15 September 1988: 17-19

Eleven floor surface treatments are being compared annually until 1996. The treatments include various types of concrete; styrene butadiene latex resin (SBR); concrete with a silica-fluride hardener, polyurethane resin surface sealer, liquid plasticiser or added water to give a 95 mm slump; hot rolled asphalt; resin grouted macadam.
