The Premos 5000 has just been released into Australia and can turn straw, hay, or lucerne into pellets.
The Krone Premos 5000 collects cut fodder with less than 16% moisture, gathering the crop with a 2.35-metre camless pick-up before feeding it through an 800mm rotor to a feed conveyor.
From there, the fodder is conveyed through an 800mm wide rotor to a feed conveyor and then through two matrix rollers. The rollers compress the material and force it through 16mm diameter holes together with water or vegetable oil, to produce pellets of between 15mm and 40mm in length. The finished pellets are then loaded into a five-tonne bin, where they are cooled before they can be unloaded into a chaser bin.
In a recent demo, Lars Pasedag, Senior Product Manager for Krone, spoke about the Premos 5000. “The liquid dispenser – using both water and vegetable oil – allows the pellets to be adjusted in hardness, density and quality for different uses. Pellet bulk density sits between 600 kg/m³ and 700 kg/m³, which is three to four times denser than straw bales, making them cost-efficient and easy to store.” An optional bale shredder and 7.5-metre feed table allows hay bales to be fed into the Premos 5000 while stationary, meaning it can operate outside the harvesting season. The minimum power requirement to run the Premos 5000 is 350hp.
