Functioning

The MAFEX®-Silage sprayers are based on ULV (ultra low volume) technology, through which the required output volume of liquid agents can be significantly reduced. The low-maintenance hose pump and enhanced rotation atomiser ensure optimum distribution of the active agent with a uniform droplet size. Depending on the type of chopper, various unit mounting options are available.

To achieve optimum effectiveness of the silage additive, it is important to ensure an even distribution of the active agent.

With the MAFEX® unit, this is accomplished by means of centrifugal force using a specially developed rotation disc that generates approx. 30 million droplets from 1 ml of liquid, achieving optimum efficiency.

Automatic priming of the system, meaning a check of all functions and the conveyance of liquid to the atomiser prior to the start of treatment, is made possible by a modern control unit. Desired volumes can be set directly on the control unit. During operation, atomiser function is monitored and an alarm function is triggered in the event of a malfunction. A flow rate controller is also available as an option.
