THROUGH a programme of continual in-field research and investment in its production facilities, Silotite has evolved in line with the ever-increasing demands of quality farming practices, the developments in high output machinery, and the demands of increasingly professional operations.
As part of its mission to continually improve efficiency, ease of use and sustainability, Silotite has announced a major investment in its Professional Range of bale wrapping films. The investment includes a fully automated and patented sleeve packaging line, enabling the production of silage film with an additional 20 per cent extra length on the reel.
Silotite1800 is perfect for both round and square bales and can be used on any type of crop and bale wrapping machinery. With its 1800m length, contractors get up to 20 per cent more bales per reel, meaning less downtime to change reels.
Along with the quality of film you’d expect from Silotite, the new Silotite1800 is a technically advanced stretch film that has an enhanced oxygen barrier and UV protection for bales, whatever the weather.
The innovative sleeve packaging offers significant advantages, being lighter than the standard cardboard box, there is a reduction of almost 20kg in packaging material used on every pallet. Cardboard also takes up a lot of space on the pallet.
By using sleeve packaging Silotite can add an extra 300m of film on each reel.
Along with time savings, Silotite1800 means there is 20 per cent less handling, transportation and storage space required. Its unique sleeve packaging means that there are no bulky boxes to handle, and recycling is easy, as the packaging is made from the same film as the bale wrap. No separating of recycling materials is needed.
Another advantage of the sleeve packaging is that the reel is more protected when it is stored on the baler. The water resistant core also give protection against humidity, whilst still being made of cardboard, it is also recyclable.
Working with baler film
Silotite1800 also works in com-bination with Baletite baler film, meaning even more versatility. Baletite baler film ensures round bales are compact and denser, providing an enhanced oxygen barrier that discourages mould growth. Baletite also benefits from the sleeve packaging for ease of use when handling.
Baletite and Silotite1800 combine to make up the film and film wrapping system that has been proven to provide an efficient and enhanced wrapping system, along with superior silage and easier feed out. Baletite peels cleanly from the bale surface as no fodder can be enmeshed as it can with net wrap. Whether feeding out manually or mechanically, Baletite makes the process easy and fast.
