PET Bottles Balers - Compaction Know-How

Polyethylene or PET bottles (plastic bottles to the rest of us) are a demanding type of material.  The bottles are hard to crush with a lasting result and it is challenging to keep the small fractions together in a bale. We can offer heavy duty compaction solutions and cross-binding baling for the most successful result.

In a standard baler, like the Orwak 5030, you can expect;

 Compaction ratio: 4:1                                             Bale weight: 40-100 kg

    Brickman 300

    The Brickman 300 is available in several options dependent on material. Creating briquettes from vast amounts of waste, no binding is required and can be fed while running. The capacity is up to an impressive 300kg per hour!

    The first version is ideally for cardboard. With compaction pressure of up to 500kg/cm2.

    Alternatively, another version available is for aluminium cans and shredded paper – due to the extension on the press cylinder and automatic greasing of the press plate.

    The third is for PET bottles and plastic containers. Reinforced press chamber, press plate and cutting blades makes this a particularly  sturdy version.
