From Harvest Protection
Mafex-Silage spraying systems ares used for application of liquid silage support agents directly during chaffing. Atomisers are installed in protective tubing at an appropriate location with an adapter suited to the chopper. The atomiser cannot clog thanks to its special design and installation angle. On John Deere choppers installation by the accelerator, for example, takes place so that plant parts are evenly covered by the droplets as they are discharged. On the other hand and depending on the year ofmanufacture, atomisers on New Holland choppers are installed near the feed rollers or, likewise, by the accelerator. As a rule, installation is possible on any chopper (e.g. Claas, Krone, etc.). Stationary installations on conveyor systems, for example, are also possible.
- Optimisation of the silage process
- Minimum application volumes
- Optimal distribution of active agent
- Flexible mounting
The MAFEX Silage fine spray unit is based on ULV (Ultra Low Volume) technology, through which the required output volume can be significantly reduced. The low-maintenance hose pump and enhanced rotary atomiser ensure an optimal distribution of active agent with uniformdroplet size. Depending on the type of chopper, unit mounting options are very flexible.
In order to achieve optimal effectiveness of the silage support agent (e.g. Bon Silage (trademark of Schaumann GmbH)), even distribution is essential. For this, the volume of the agent must be distributed in a multiple of uniformly sized droplets.
On the MAFEX unit, this is accomplished by means of centrifugal force using a specially developed rotation disc that generates approx. 30 million droplets from 1 ml of liquid in a uniform size of approx. 40 micron.
Automatic priming of the system, meaning a check of all functions and the conveyance of liquid up to the flow rate controller prior to the start of silage support agent application, is made possible by a modern control unit. Desired volumes can be set directly on the control unit. During operation, atomiser function and agent flow rate are monitored and an alarm function is triggered in the event of a malfunction.
