As in many sectors market gardening too is subject to significant changes. Increasing pressure on quality, competition, far-reaching environmental restrictions and higher operating costs are forcing the market gardener to work efficiently and environment-minded and convert to a large degree of mechanisation. Striving after a high quality and production per m2 is staat often in contravention of the imposed restrictions in the use of fertilisers and pesticides. In addition, the diversity in base materials for substrates is increasing and often the delivery thereof involves great distances.
In continuation of the Big-bale press and the Big-bale dosing bunker the Big-bale programme is now being complemented with the Big-bale mini-mix line. The Big-bale press and dosing bunker have already proved their added value and the mini-mix line will only further enhance that. A new development that offers unprecedented opportunities for both the market gardener and the supplier ofook base materials and substrates.
The ML15 enables the manufacturer to meet the highest quality requirements of his customers globally and on more competitive terms. In addition, the MM15 offers the market gardener significant savings in the purchase, production, delivery, storage and processing of his desired substrate. Furthermore, the quality of the delivered substrate is retained over a long period and any desired addition can be realised just-in-time.
¿How does the ML15 work?
¿For whom is the ML15 intended?
The ML15 is a compact and mobile installation, which allows the market gardener to adapt a basic substrate or base material to the desired composition, whether or not in the greenhousenaar. The Big-bale dosing bunker feeds the installation, whereupon perlite or vermiculite, calcium, two fertilisers and a pesticide can be added. The whole dosing process is driven and controlled by a computer. Then the various additives are mixed with the basic substrate in a continuous process in the specially designed horizontally positioned mixing drum. After the mixing, water can still be added and the finished product is dosed directly into the pot-filling machine.
For market gardeners who have to deliver their substrates over great distances and/or have many different cultures, which each require their own substrate, the ML15 is the solution. By buying one type of high-quality base material or substrate with a basic fertiliser you can use the ML15 to adapt the base material or substrate to any standard, climate or culture method you want. The advantage of doing so is that you can buy in great volumes and adapt them into small batches. This prevents lengthy storage and slow turnaround times of many types of substrates. The (near) absence of fertilisers prevents loss of structure through decomposition during storage. Often these fertilisers are active directly and/or over a certain period, as a result of which it is no longer possible to control the quality of the substrate during processing.
