White peat fraction 0-25 mm

White peat with fraction 0-25 mm has been produced by the screening of milled peat (see White peat). During the screening, pieces of peat and wood with a diameter larger than 25 mm will be removed from the peat.

Block peat with fraction 0-25 mm is used in the production of peat-based substrates and planting soil. Generally, blond peat with fraction 0-25 mm is sold packaged. White peat with fraction 0-25 mm has the following main characteristics:

1. Degree of decomposition H1 to H4 on the von Post scale.
2. pH (CaCl2) 3,5 – 4,5.
3. Water absorbency 800-1000 ml/100 g.
4. Minimum dry organic matter content 95%.
5. Water content 40-50%.
6. Volume weight 130-220 kg/m3.
7. Minimum content of particles larger than 1 mm 90%.
