Edum S PROF: a new professional range for producers of high quality forage

The 2014 season, characterized in most of the European continent by a higher than average rainfall, put a strain on forage producers, who ran the serious risk of seeing their harvest compromised, and they performed well below their expectations. In these environmental situations, drying machines can make the difference: forage dryers normally allow to obtain a higher quality product than by traditional haymaking, and in adverse environmental conditions they are the only solution for the production of the dry forage that the market now demands. This challenge was met by ClimAir 50, an international company operating in France for nearly 25 years and in many other continents, thanks to a wide and varied range in which the new Edmu S PROF series has the role of undisputed protagonist. Designed to house more square bales per cycle - depending on the size, it goes from a minimum of nine square bales up to thirty-six (120x90x220) - the Edmu 32-2 S PROF dryers target the productivity of the work cycles, with performance exceeding by 50% (manufacturer's data) compared to those of the competition. "In the development of the models - as explained in a technical note by the company, which has 40 years of know-how - the ClimAir 50 technicians seek to offer the market ever higher levels of efficiency, with an eye to operating cost reduction, while keeping as a priority the quality of the final product." In the case of the Edum S PROF series, this objective has been achieved by implementing a high performance machine in which the interaction between the control panel (with which operations can be set via touch screen) and the inverter maximizes efficiency and reduces drying time. For this reason the Edmu S PROF dryers are able to provide a higher productivity for the same processed surface, with a significant reduction in electricity and fuel consumption.
