The run off is designed to contain the sheep in the unit to drip off after treatment. Once complete the sheep run off the exit ramp.
How it works
Sheep enter the unit via the ramp.
The operator closes the entrance door using the pulley system. The Sheep are sprayed by 18 jets with a total flow rate of 140 litres per minute at 2 bar pressure.
After dripping off, the operator opens the exit door using the pulley system. The Sheep exit the Dipfast via the ramp.
As an experienced Sheep Farmer and Electrician, Mark Kelly built the first ever DipFast 8 years ago using an old Oil Tank and material he found on his farm. Finding the process of dipping his sheep becoming even more expensive and laborious, he was determined to figure out a way to do it safer, easier and quicker. Mark’s prototype was so successful with treating his own flock of sheep the neighbouring farmers were approaching him asking to treat their sheep.
Fast forward to 2017, Mark and his three sons, Aidan, Patrick and Colm are finally ready to release their Dipfast product for sale after a 3 year long R&D process. Working closely with Harlequin MFG, the final product is the first of its kind, a tried and tested fully enclosed sheep showering system.
