Anaerobic Digestion

The BOCK UK Silage Clamp Is a Unique Design With Unrivalled Benefits

It is easy to overlook silage clamps when planning or constructing an anaerobic digestion plant, yet we know from experience in Germany and the UK that silage quality can make or break the long-term success of your anaerobic digestion project.

Waste in silage clamps can vary from as high as 25% energy loss to as low a 4%* with the right clamps, right covers and right husbandry. No-one can afford to make bad silage, and we can help you make great silage. 

With over 25 anaerobic digestion plants in the UK using our clamps, and many more using our covers and accessories, we have a good understanding of what you need for your anaerobic digestion plant.

Our USP is this: we want to make sure you have everything you need to make best silage, and this starts with the design. The width and the length of your clamps must match your feed out rate. A good clamp will also be designed with the operator in mind so picking sizes to best suit the available silage covers is a vital step.

The BOCK Advantage

A sloping wall design means that compacting machinery can be used right up to the edge of the panels ensuring compaction across the clamp. It is much harder to achieve this level of compaction on a vertical wall clamp.

The Bock system allows for surcharging – that is the piling of silage above the tops of the panels – this can’t be achieved to the same extent in a conventional vertical wall clamp.

Operator safety the earth banks provide a stable platform to work off, they also provide a good platform for the storage of covers and gravel bags

The clamps blend into the scenery and are almost invisible from a distance, leading to minimal visual impact.

Construction is quick and simple.
