FC 8322 Details FORAGE COMPACTOR 8322 FEATURES SPEED

Operates at sprint speeds of up to 12-17 metric tons per hour*

MULTIPLE INPUT SOURCES

Can accept 3x4x8 or 4x4x8 big square bales, or standard 3-tie bales fed from a destacker.

MINIMAL STAFF REQUIREMENTS

Two to three people can operate the machine under normal plant conditions.

AUTOMATION

The Hunterwood FC8322 is fully automated and controlled from a PLC located on the operator's platform next to the press. The color touch screen allows operators to control and monitor all components of the press. The PLC provides up-to-the-second reporting of production output, component pressures and temperatures, and monitoring of third-party equipment, such as strappers or stretch wrappers.

INPUT & OUTPUT SCALING

The Scaling Intake Conveyor and the Output Scale are synchronized to produce a bale weight measured within 3% of the targeted weight and a container weight measured within 1% of the maximum allowable.

SELF-CONTAINED POWER PACK

The power pack and hydraulic tank are installed in a high cube shipping container. This eliminates the need for a separate power room or structure.

QUALITY CONTROL

A Quality Control Station is located in the product handling portion of the FC8322 where bales are separated from each other by an accelerated chain drive. This allows the QC operator to spot and reject defective bales before they enter the final packaging area.

HUNTERWOOD ONLINE (Webbased)

Available online access of press and component diagnostics. This program provides detailed shift-by-shift production and downtime reports to assist the plant manager's ability to obtain consistent press operation for peak efficiency. Hunterwood Online allows for real-time monitoring from any location.

PACKAGING

Our product handling can palletize bale layers and apply vertical and horizontal straps to create a unitized package. This allows for easy loading into containers or for the pallet to be sent to a modular stretch-wrap machine.

OPTIONAL HUNTERWOOD COMPONENTS

Hunterwood provides modular components allowing for flexibility with product output or features that increase automation.
