3.8 cu yrd Bale Shaver Peat Fluffer

The Peat Fluffer is ideal for decompressing or "fluffing" 3.8 cubic bales of compressed peat or pre-mix media. The fluffer's rotating tines uniformly break up chunks of peat as they pass from the loading area to the discharge at the top of the incline. The optional watering bar enables the desired amount of moisture to be added and helps to maximize the yield of the bale. Optional adjustable caster wheels allow the fluffer to be easily moved to service multiple filling machines. Consistent media, increased compressed bale  yield, and labor efficiency combine to make the peat fluffer a valuable tool for the grower who uses 3.8 cubic foot bales.

PM 1200 Vertical Bale Shaver

 If you are using peat moss or pre-mix substrate, the PM1200 Bale Shaver will produce a consistent texture and flow throughout the entire bale. Just place the palletized bale inside the machine, close the doors, and press start. The elevator feeds the bale into the horizontal scraper that takes off thin layers of the peat or pre-mix substrate. This is undoubtedly the best process for compressed bale yield with the ability to control moisture content and product integrity.

Whether it's peat or pre-mix, the PM1210 Horizontal Bale Shaver delivers consistent media texture and flow from the top of the bale to the bottom. The palatalized bale is placed on the platform, lifting up and tilting into the steel chain flight that acts as a harrow to evenly extract the peat or pre-mix, layer by layer. Improved processing maximizes compressed bale yield and moisture content consistency.

Coir Batch Mixers

 As more growers have adopted Coir coconut fibers due to its natural pH balance and renewable nature, traditional mixers have struggled with the heavily compacted media and fibrous structure. To accommodate these growers, the Pack Mfg Line of Mixing Equipment is offering the Pack Manufacturing Coir Batch Mixers- available in Half Cubic Yard, One Cubic Yard, and Two Cubic Yard models. The Pack Manufacturing Coir Batch Mixer uses the Batch Mixer design with a water-tight sealed output chute, clamping door, Heavy Duty motor package, and dual CNC milled water bars. Using the dual water bar attachment to flood the coir bale helps separate the fibers without damaging them and breaks down the tightly compacted coir so that it mixes the ingredients into an unparalleled blend. The Heavy Duty motor package ensures your mixture will be evenly blended even when using dry recipes. Add on a Coir Breaking Conveyor to expedite your coir mixing even more by breaking your coir down into smaller pieces before it enters the mixer.
