Logitec Coco Mill speeds up coir processing, avoids fiber damage

Coir is being used more often in modern horticulture due to the excellent breeding characteristics and good availability of the material. Coir is thought to be one of the most important growing media of the future. By compressing the material into blocks, coir can be shipped economically worldwide.

Up to now coir processing has been a slow process or carried out using brute force which breaks up the compressed blocks. This can damage the fibers and does not incorporate the necessary moisture in the coir to decompress properly. Proper moisture is required before filling and planting.

The Logitec Coir Mill has been developed to moisturize and break up the compressed blocks in the proper way. The mill brings the coir back to its original state with the desired moisture level. The mill gently decompresses the coir using moisture control and a specialized screen. The special screen only releases the coir that is properly processed. The process is done at high speed, with a rate more than 20m3 of ready material per hour. The Logitec Coir Mill can feed multiple filling machines at once.

The Logitec Coco Mill can be supplied in various configurations. From a simple manual system to fully automatic. An optional touch screen control panel will allow for perfect moisture control and the possibility for recipe building. Coir blocks are filled automatically into the Coir Mill using a special pallet lift.
