The machine manufacturer Strautmann Umwelttechnik GmbH reports about the successful IFAT in Munich. A lot of visitors visited the stand during the five-day exhibition in hall A5 241/340. The live compaction of cardboard packaging and the emptying of beverage containers attracted many visitors to the stand. The company focused on the compaction and emptying of three materials: cardboard, film and PET. For these recyclables Strautmann offered different solutions.
Economic compaction of cardboard and film
The BalePress 10, MK 700 and the PP 1208 represented the wide product range of Strautmann single- and multi-chamber balers. Starting with annual quantities of 5 tons up to 280 tons the robust and durable balers compact different material into bales. Thanks to the small footprint the machines can be set up internally. Long walking ways to the outside area are now avoided. The balers reduce the volume of recyclable material, save space and enable high revenues in bale marketing.
Drainage and devaluation of full beverage containers
The LiquiDrainer® empties full beverage cans, TetraPak® and PET bottles. With a throughput of up to 10.000 1L PET bottles an hour, the dewatering machine empties reliably, cleanly and quickly. The time consuming manual emptying is now history.
Function: Full beverage containers are inserted manually or automatically into the hopper of the machine. A feed rock then conveys the material to a rotor which pierced the beverage containers and empties them. At the same time the goods are pre-compacted and devalued, so that no abuse can be operated. The liquids run through a filter box and are discharged separately. A residual emptying of the liquids up to 99% is achieved.
Automatic emptying and time savings
The unique collection cart system makes clear that the AutoLoadBaler is a time machine. Annoying manual tearing and throwing into the filling opening is now superfluous.
Function: The collection carts filled with cardboard are pushed into the press within seconds. With a push of a button the automatic pressing process starts. The bottom of the collection trolley automatically moves up and the cardboard is conveyed via rotors into the press chamber where the cardboard is compacted with 530kN pressing force into approx. 400kg directly marketable bales.
Due to the internal installation of the automatic AutoLoadBaler and the large collecting carts the staff saves running distances and time. The direct marketable bales can also be sold with high revenues.
