3 steps to dispose full beverage containers economically

From 13rd to 15th November, Strautmann Umwelttechnik presented its waste disposal solutions at the BrauBeviale in Nuremberg. For more than 20 years Strautmann is known for its reliability and innovation for emptying and compaction of PET, beverage cans and TetraPak®.

Since many years the LiquiDrainer and the BrikPress can’t be imagine out of beverage industry. With the Strautmann machines you get an immediate optimization of your disposal processes.

1. LiquiDrainer: Insertion of full beverage containers
Manually, by conveyor belt or forklift, up to 10,000 1L beverage bottles can be inserted and emptied within 1 hour. A feed rocker feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor pricks into the beverage container so that liquid can escape.

2. LiquiDrainer: Devalue
Due to the special rotor technique the beverage containers are not only emptied but also devalued. Thus residuals are destroyed and can’t get into circulation. The liquids are targetly drained and go through a coarse filter. The liquids can also be sold to biogas plants. .

3. BrikPress: Compaction of empty containers
PET containers from the LiquiDrainer can be compacted with a BrikPress. Through conveyor belts or a fork lift the press can be inserted 24/7. With a throughput of 50,000 bottels in 1 hour the material is compacted with 380kN. The result: high compacted briquettes.

Benefit LiquiDrainer: Cost-intensive manual opening of PET bottles is not necessary anymore. This work is now done by the LiquiDrainer automatically and without any man-power. The disposal remains in-house and prevents that faulty batches can get into circulation. In addition, high revenues can be achieved by selling the liquid to biogas plants.

Benefit BrikPress: Via conveyors or lift trucks, the press can be filled around the clock. With a throughput of up to 50,000 bottles per hour, the material inside the press chamber is compressed with a pressing force of 380kN. The highly compacted briquettes are then pushed out through the channel systems automatically and can be stored in containers.

With the Strautmann LiquiDrainer, bale- and briquette presses you successfully dispose of with little effort and a lot of effect.
