HydraFiber Ultra Processing Equipment

An important feature of HydraFiber Ultra is that it comes compressed and packaged in 50-lb. bales with a 13:1 expansion rate. That’s key to reducing your shipping costs, saving storage space and unloading fewer trucks. AgriNomix in Oberlin, Ohio – industry leaders in greenhouse manufacturing equipment – developed the HydraFiber processing units to fit easily into most existing mix lines. These machines are designed to return the HydraFiber Ultra bales to their fibrous state and maximize the yield of each bale, producing 1.1 cubic yards of singulated fibrous material that’s ready to blend with other components.
