5 steps to success: economical disposal of beverage containers

From 8th to 10th 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. Quick and lean you can reduce your disposal processes to a minimum.

1. 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.

2. Emptying
A feed rocker feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor pricks into the beverage container so that liquid can escape.

3.  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.

4. Drain
The liquids are targetly drained and go through a coarse filter. The liquids can also be sold to biogas plants.

5. Verdichtung leerer Getränkebehälter
Vom LiquiDrainer aus kann nachgeschaltet eine Brikettpresse die entleerten Getränkebehälter verdichten. Über Förderbänder oder per Stapler kann die Presse rund um die Uhr befüllt werden. Mit einer Durchsatzleistung von bis zu 50.000 Flaschen pro Stunde wird das Material im Presskanal mit einer Presskraft von 380 kN verdichtet. 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 380 kN. 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.
