When designing our balers we are increasingly taking a lifecycle approach and are continously striving to be the most eco friendly supplier.
We have more than 15 years´experience of baling RDF and SRF. Already in 2001 we launched our first baler with a tying system using combustibe tying material. We have since then supplied balers for RDF baling, both to Waste-To-Energy (WTE) installations and to the cement industry. The Presona balers are very well suited for baling a.a. RDF and SRF thanks to the pre-press system which means that no shearing of the material is required. In principle all of the of the press force is utilized for the compaction process itself = no power wasted in the shearing operation.
The plastic string can also be used when baling recyclable plastics. High-quality material quickly deteriorate by rusting steel wire, especially if the bales are stored outdoors.
The square bale format produced by the Presona balers for best possible handling characteristics. The bales are dense and can be stacked in many layers with maintained bale shape. Bale format adapted for best possible load weights in containers and trucks.
The Presona original pre-press technology balers stand to reason when chosing baling equipment for WTE-plants, saving energy in the baling operation using down to 60 % of the energy input required for a traditional shear baling system. We offer a proven strapping technology using PP (polypropylene) strings to eliminate ”contamination” of the baled material through steel wire. To remove the wire before incineration will cost both money and efforts. The plastic string breaking properties are comparable to the steel wire. The consumption cost for PP string is also lower compared to steel wire, consumption per bale ca 0,15 kg PP string compared to ca 1,3 kg steel wire.
Contact Presona for further information about our baler options. We look forward to looking at your RDF/SRF baling issues to see how we can solve your problems in the best possible way.
