Visscher Separators starts in Costa Rica

The Twin Separator will be used in Costa Rica to press fibers of banana trees. Next, the pressed product will be used for the production of pallets.

Costa Rica is a big exporter of bananas, these bananas are shipped over the whole world by pallet. These pallets are normally made of wood, however, for these wooden pallets trees need to be logged. Now, a more sustainable solution has emerged: the producing of pallets using rest product of the banana production. It works as follows: after the harvesting of the bananas, the banana plants will be pressed dry to be used as the foot blocks for pallets.

Banana trees grow fast and consist out of tough fibers; therefore, a press is needed that can cope with this intensive usage. Conventional presses did not lead to the wanted results; the pressed product was not dry enough and the presses did wear down too quickly because of the intensive usage. The solution will be provided by Visscher Separators. The Twin Separator developed by Visscher Separators is, because of its built with two screw drives,  perfectly suited for dry pressing the tough banana plant fibers. As a result, the pressed product will be much dryer. Besides, the Twin Separator will wear much slower than the conventional presses.

Visscher Separator for Milchgut Schneeberg

Green Bedding for Milchgut Schneeberg

Roald van der Zweep has been a dairy farmer for over 20 years now. He is located in Germany, close to the Polish border. Over the years, he expanded his business up to 800 cows, divided over several cow sheds. All his sheds are equipped with cubicles. After experimenting with different kinds of bedding over the past few years, he got familiar with Green Bedding. The contractor that has been providing the bedding for Roald, uses four Visscher Separators. Roald was impressed with this system because the cows are cleaner, they stand up more easily and they are laying down a lot. Besides that, Roald noticed that the cows enjoy more comfort. To keep the cubicles filled, Roald decided to buy a Visscher Separator for his own.

Comfortable cubicles add to cow health

Comfortable cubicles add to cow health

Too little comfort

Many cubicles offer too little comfort, as a result the cow does not lay down enough. This has direct effect on the health of the cow. A cow is supposed to lay down at least 14 hours a day, when a cow is standing too long or too many hours a day the cow will get problems with its hoof as a result. Also a cubicle with wrong bedding has bald and swollen heels as a result.

Biobedding is the solution

Practice proves that cows in a Biobedding cow shed have better udder health and a lower cell number. Also problems with Mastitis belong to the past with a Biobedding cow shed. Summarized, Biobedding improves cow healt.

In the following video, experts from Valacon explain why good cubicles are so important. They are visiting the van der Meer family who are using a Visscher Separator with great satisfaction.
