25 years of service

Numedic is now in its 25th year of business under the ownership of Peter and Cathryn Reid. 

In 1995 they took ownership of a business with one product line -- the Numedic Power Drenching system. Through innovation and their experience as farmers they now have a range of dairy effluent equipment sold New Zealand-wide and exported to several countries.

Numedic now has a new shore mounted effluent pump in its popular range of NG pumps. This self priming centrifugal pump handles solids up to 35 mm diameter with a suction lift of up to 8 m. This enables the pump to handle raw effluent. 

All Numedic pumps range from 7.5 kW to 18.5 kW. An improved version of the company’s Adcam 750 irrigator – the new model is called Adcam 750 LD -- can achieve depths down to 5mm. It still has the short and long boom that spread effluent evenly to achieve maximum grass growth. 

The Adcam 750 LD irrigator can now be supplied with braid instead of wire rope. Braid suffers no damage if it kinks and it is highly visible in the paddock.

Numedic hydrant range now includes models for use with 110 mm OD effluent pipe. These hydrants have a moulded tailpiece that fits snugly inside this larger diameter effluent pipe. This means the range includes hydrants with various size tailpieces and ones with 80 BSP male thread.

The company’s water saving Hydrofan washdown nozzles, now well proven, use only about half the water consumed by standard washdown nozzles. These can be fitted on backing gates to reduce water use and are very effective in yard cleaning.

Numedic is a Farm Dairy Effluent System accredited designer able to give expert advice on a total effluent system or improvements to existing systems.
