United Kingdom – UK recycling company Paper Mountain is to take delivery of a new 31-tonne Presona baler with conveyer system, thereby increasing its annual handling capacity to 50 000 tonnes of paper, cardboard and plastic.
The LP 80 VH1 baler has a press force of 80 tonnes and can handle up to 15 tonnes of paper per hour. As with all Presona LP Series balers, this new model incorporates pre-press technology.
When compared to a traditional shear baler, ‘this delivers a significant reduction in energy costs as all of the power goes into the compaction process’, it is stressed by the Swedish recycling machinery manufacturer. And because the process is more streamlined, the units ‘suffer less wear and tear and produce less noise’, it is added.
