Next Generation Coating Technology for Dust control and Anti-Caking

15 January 2018

The fine nature of humate based raw ingredients, as used in BioMAX Soluble Humate Prill, can generate dust during storage and handling creating a hazardous work environment and difficulty in handling. In addition, the high moisture absorption of humate based products can lead to caking making storage and steady flow through equipment difficult.

At LawrieCo we have been working tirelessly on developing advanced coating technology. We have now finalised this innovation and have been in commercial production of the coated product for the past 8 months.

The new coating technology applied to BioMAX Soluble Humate Prill addresses the above challenges by making the product easier to handle with significant dust control and cake-free properties.This also allows the successful blend of the Humate Prill with conventional fertilisers in the NutriMAX Granular range used in crop-establishment programs.

The specialised coating is important for maintaining the efficacy of the product while creating a barrier that reduces dust generation, moisture absorption and caking.

“This advance in coating technology is another step in delivering practical on-farm results for producers we work with. This new coating enables us to collectively combine innovative biological fertilisers with the best of conventional fertiliser in an easy to use product that focuses on greater returns from farm nutritional investment” comments Mathew Denton, LawrieCo Business Development.

Key Benefits of the Coating Technology

At LawrieCo our focus is on product simplicity and farm results. We look for continual improvement and innovation in our product offering to deliver this to farms we work with.
