Recycling and Baling – Are They Compatible With Your Needs?
Silage wrap is essentially a blown sheet most commonly used for high moisture baling. The blown sheet allows the wrapping to stretch and contract with varying temperatures. High moisture baling with higher moisture levels has become more popular over the past decade because it enables an earlier crop time without the usually associated problems such as rain spoilage and air pockets. This has resulted in a significant increase in the production cycle times for the majority of silage producers. Click to buy high-quality silage wrap.
Hay is made in two separate pieces, the first being the rough (or pliable) silage bale which may be loosely rolled up or sliced into three or four quarter-inch strips. This second piece of the bale is the soft or ‘cooked’ side of the bale. The cooking side of the bale is usually made from a plastic mould that can easily be washed and reused. The plastic mould can also be cleaned and reused, although this requires some additional pre-bale washing to ensure the plastic sheeting is free of any debris that may have remained trapped inside after the bale has been washed.
The silage wrap manufacturer will typically prepare the bale for the manufacture using either an injection mould process, where molten plastic is shot at high speed into the pre-made sheeting or a roll forming method where the ball is rolled from one roll of the plastic sheeting using rotary tools. After the plastic has cooled sufficiently, it is then cut into its strips. Most silage manufacturers will use various methods to produce the individual strips of the bale, including wire lopping, slitting and even using a circular saw. The final step is to wrap the individual strips around a spinner, and the bale is ready for sale. Click to buy high-quality silage wrap.
The amount of silage wrap a typical farm will need will depend on several factors, including how much land the farmer has available to plant the bales, the existing crop and how quickly the farmers want the hay to mature. This will also depend on the cost of the silage. The more silage wrap a farmer purchases, the less it costs to ship to the market. This means that a farm with limited land and needs a quick delivery of the silage can save money by wrapping the bales on its own.
The use of silage wrap in the production of comfortable mulches and other household and garden debris forms makes it a viable solution for both farmers and consumers. In addition, many people have turned to silage wrap when they discover that most commercial yard sales are not taking away their organic scraps and recycling options. Even the government has started to encourage silage wrap in its rolls and bags as it is considered an excellent source of raw material for making compost. This fact leads many to believe that silage wrap and recycling are two sides of the same coin that benefits the environment and saves money for users. Click to buy high-quality silage wrap.
