Milled peat is extracted with milling method by removing the peat field’s top layer of 11 – 20 mm in depth. In order to facilitate the drying of peat the rake process is done. Dried peat layers are collected in swathes by providing a peat absorption in pillboxes with pneumatic collectors. Available fractions of milled peat are – fr.0-7mm, fr.0-10mm, fr.0-20mm and fr.0-40mm. Milled peat is transported in Big Bales on pallets or in bulk.
Cut peat is extracted by cutting it mechanically from prepared peat field while preserving its natural structure in non-split peat blocks. Cut peat is stacked and dried in stacks by repeating the cycle three times until the humidity does not exceed 35 – 40%. Block dimensions are 18x30x50. Cut peat is transported unpacked.
CUT PEAT IN FRACTIONS
Upon client's desire peat can be granulated mechanically, deselected in fractions and packed. Available granulated fractions of cut peat – fr.0-10mm, fr.0-20mm, fr.0-40mm, fr.20-40, as well as other factions. Fractionated cut peat is transported in Big Bales on pallets. Humification (%) H2 – H4; Active acidity (pH H2O) 3,4 – 3,7; Ash content (%) 0,3 – 4,4; Type of packing Big Bales.
