So how does it work? A big bale of peat on a pallet is placed into the cabinet. The cabinet door is closed and the controls are set. The pallet inside the cabinet is raised slowly and the compressed media scraped off by scraper blades positioned at the top of the machine. The process is controlled producing the amount of media flow needed at the container filling facility. Flow can be stopped at anytime allowing part pallet loads if media needs to be processed. As the scraping system is controlled electronically, the output from the bale can produce maximum breakout. 

These bale breaker machines allow customers to negotiate reduced freight rates for compressed media supply. The unit is fixed in a space saving upright position allowing a clearway around the unit.
