Mick Moor

Mick Moor has over 30 years’ experience in all aspects connected with your slurry store, including design, supply, installation of new slurry store systems and inspection and repair of existing slurry stores and slurry equipment. This type of slurry store is extremely resistant to corrosion, so can be used to store liquids ranging in pH from 3 to 9, or even more corrosive liquids, if specified with the initial enquiry. We also specialise in the supply and design of silos to store almost any granular material or powder, particularly connected with the agricultural and food industries. As well as the slurry store or silo, we supply and maintain the associated slurry and silo equipment such as slurry pumps, pipelines, augers and conveyors.

We provide a comprehensive range of slurry handling installations including tanks, pumps, pipework and conditioning systems to customers throughout Derbyshire, the Midlands and the rest of the UK. We now work closely with a supplier of such equipment, ranging from a simple rag filter, through settlement tanks, lamella plate clarifiers, aeration systems and different types of separator, to complete sewage treatment plant ready for discharge.

Due to recent tragic circumstances, everybody is now more aware of the danger from entering a slurry store. Rockall Safety are able to hire gas monitors on a 'next day' basis, at reasonable rates.

Predominantly supporting the agricultural sector, we also install tanks for waste and anaerobic digestion. We can carry out a full site survey, and supply drawings suitable for your planning applications, or even complete the application for you.

In addition to Storth Tanks we can also supply and install new tanks made by other manufacturers such as Permastore®. We also refurbish and repair existing older tanks including Boythorpe, Gascoigne, Alfa Laval, and Simplex, either in situ, or to re-erect on another site. We will purchase good quality second-hand tanks for reconditioning and resale or to be used as spare parts. Some tanks were originally installed with the intention of extending them at a later date. We can decide whether your tank is such, and supply new or good second-hand sheets to do so, either adding a ring to the top, or inserting a ring at the bottom.

Slurry conditioning is becoming increasingly important to preserve the fertiliser value and control odour. We recommend Ameram equipment to do this most effectively, and install Aeromixers in new and existing circular above ground stores, and slatted cellars. Biocrust is a new development in floating covers to control odour escaping from the slurry and lock in nitrogen to maintain fertiliser value.

Based in Derbyshire's beautiful peak district, we have been trading for over 30 years

Our specialist knowledge of sealed moist grain silos and slurry tanks has taken us throughout Great Britain, France as far south as the Pyrenees, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and Germany. We have a wealth of experience in the design, planning and installation of silos and hoppers, as well as dismantling and re-erecting silo and slurry equipment on alternative sites. We also carry out related site work, including welding, planning and execution of craned lifts, slinging, banking, access platform operation etc.

Our workshop facilities allow us to fabricate any parts which are not available ‘off the shelf’, or are now obsolete, such as catches for silo doors, shafts for sweep auger gearboxes, improved slides for the old style Harvestore sluice which was fitted to earlier slurry stores. We take pride in accuracy, whether it be a fraction of a millimetre on a machined part, or a millimetre or two in setting out a 40 metre diameter tank. As a result, we often find ourselves working to tighter tolerances than those set by the manufacturers.

We also have suppliers to manufacture replacement seals for silo hatches, or PVC umbilical pipe work fittings, because we have noticed that galvanised parts corrode rapidly if alternately submerged and exposed by the slurry, as happens if the store is emptied and cleaned out regularly.
