Lublinskoe collects recovered paper, mainly cardboard but also books, newspapers, and magazines, in and around the Moscow area. The material is brought to the facility, where it is baled and shipped by train or truck to the buyers. Since 2016 the company is using three Presona LP 140 CH1 balers to get the job done.
High bale weight
All three balers are equipped with our innovative prepress technology which creates consistent, high-density bales and that lowers transport costs. Since much of Lublinskoe’s bales are transported by train well-made bales with high weight is of key importance. Thanks to the Presona balers up to 63 tonnes of OCC can be loaded into a single railway carriage at the facility loading dock.
– Presona balers help us achieve bales with high weight while at the same time being fully automatic, easy to use and maintain and long lasting. That’s just what we are looking for in a baler, says Leonid Ageev, Technical Manager of the large recovered paper facility.
Low operational costs
When compared to a shear baler, a prepress baler delivers a significant reduction in energy costs as all of the power goes into the compaction process. A prepress baler also offers lower operational costs due to the fact it has no knives that have to be sharpened or replaced.
Another feature that saves money is Presona’s tying system which leaves shorter “pig tails” than other systems. Often overlooked as a “minor detail” this feature can save several thousand Euros a year on baling wire, even at moderate operational levels.
Not only the Russians
To be absolutely fair it isn’t just the Russians at Lublinskoe (click to read more) who knows how to put Presona balers to good use by making great cardboard bales. Our LP Series balers are used by many blue chip organizations including Veolia, DS Smith, Smurfit Kappa, Asda, Tesco, COOP and XPO Logistics.
Presona balers are of course not limited to baling cardboard and OCC. They can process a wide variety of materials like newspaper, magazines, print waste, RDF, SRF, PET, plastics, municipal and solid waste.
