Grain bags of TM “Harwell” serve an alternative for grain and silo storage. When storing grain in bags you get such advantages as minimum one-time expenses, the possibility to store and sort grain in its own territory.
The technology – storage of grain in the airtight environment in the anaerobic condition, achieved by a dense loading of grain in a special polyethylene grain bag.
Production. Grain bags of the “Planet Plastic” production are made of polymer compositions by a three-layer extrusion method. Exclusive line for the production of three-layer polyethylene bags for grain storage meets all international standards. Plastic grain bags consist of two layers – white and black. White layer reflects the sunlight and prevents temperature increase inside the bag. The inner black layer protects the product against the penetration of direct sunlight. Besides, all layers contain a special additive – stabilizer, which protects the film from the damaging UV effects.
