Baler in heart of Africa

UK-based Ken Mills Engineering (KME) was recently commissioned by ExxonMobil to supply a twin-ram baler for its central African operation.

The machine was purchased to handle the recyclable materials being generated within the petrochemical company’s oilfields and pipeline transportation operations, which transport crude oil from Chad (pictured) to Cameroon. These materials include card, polythene and paper.

According to KME, its simple but effective construction makes it the ideal machine for an operation in such a remote location, allowing it to be serviced and maintained by a team of on-site service engineers.

The Aries twin-ram baler was selected for its robust but compact design, high throughput capacity and high-density bales. The fully automatic unit can handle up to 10 tonnes an hour.
