Jan 27, 2016

With the usage of only one tractor, it's now possible to convert vegetal and woody biomass from 4 inches diameter into a 4 foot netted and compacted round bale ready for industrial usage.
The Biobaler WB-55 is design for forestry and agricultural biomass harvesting in rough conditions, on any type of ground.
BASIC features
  • Mulcher head 2.25 m (88.5 in)
  • Fixed chamber 1.2 m x 1.2 m (4' x 4')
  • 2 forestry tires 500/60-22.5
  • Rear camera
  • Twine wrapping system
  • Axle lift system
  • Electronic control box
  • Rear road lights
  • Box for rolls of twine 8
An innovative solution!
The BioBaler Harvesting System is a simple concept. In a single pass, with only one operator, the BioBaler cuts and compacts biomass into dense round bale. Bales can be collected on site at any time after harvest.
The philosophy behind the BioBaler harvesting system is to use a small dimension harvester to collect and densify the biomass in the field reducing the ecological footprint. Tha shape and density of bales allow a better cost efficient transportation from the field to the power plant with conventional equipment. At this point, the biomass can be processed according to the specifications of the facilities with more efficient equipment.
Bales can be delivered directly to the plant or be stored in the field for future use. Bales of biomass will not deteriorate during storage over a long period, even though they are harvested in very wet conditions. An advantage of this technology is that biomass bales dry out naturally without risk of spontaneous combustion, thereby increasing its heat potential; unlike a pile of woodchips that are rotting.
Each bale contains over 1 MW/hr of energy depending of the type of biomass. The BioBaler can produce up to 40 bales/hr (20 tons/hr) in plantations and 15-18 bales/hr (8-10 tons/hr) in natural environments. The BioBaler can collect different species of shrubs, bushes and trees up to 15 cm (6 in) in diameter.
Up to now, the BioBaler Harvesting System is the only commercially viable technology able to collect natural brushes.
BIOBALER output: a compact round bale
The BioBaler produces a round, compact bale that is easy to handle ans transport.
Each bale weighs around 500-600 kg (1000 - 1200 lbs).
MOVING, storing and drying process
Round bales of willow and poplar will dry naturally from 50-55 % to 18-20 % moisture content (canadian observation).
Within 8 weeks of warm weather, willow and poplar moisture content will decrease naturally. Result may vary depending of general condition of your country.
LOGISTIC of bales after harvesting
From the middle of the field to the road
Bales can be picked up by an Anderson self-loading bale carrier. This carrier will collect the bales into the field, and drop the bales along the road or in the field.
From the road to the power plant
Once bales are dry, they can be picked up from the field, and sent to the power plant to be ground or burned. A regular flat bed conventional trailer can contain over 40 round bales per load.
