Q: What is your product?
Jarshire/IPS two-ram horizontal balers for processing multi-materials.
Q: How does it work?
The system conveyor feeds it and, when the level of material is high enough, the platen pushes the material into the baling chamber.
Only when the baling chamber has sufficient material density will the platen stop and the ejector push the bale out and through a strapping unit.
The baler achieves a bale density such that a container of bales will reach its maximum weight, reducing the freight cost per tonne.
The machine uses high- pressure hydraulic technology to flow massive amounts of fluid quickly and efficiently.
Q: Where should it be used?
It is especially suitable for use in MRFs, although the balers can stand alone.
Q: How is it different?
With its exclusive pre-compression lid, it will bale up to 25 tonnes/hr of OCC and up to 40 tonnes/hr of ONP and high grades.
The exclusive design of the IPS hydraulic power pack allows it to pump a high volume of oil during the baling cycle.
As there are six balers in the range, all with different options, it is not possible to give an accurate price except to say they represent real value for money. Important features such as bale door/relief, phone modem and wye-delta starting are included as standard. All balers and associated equipment may be leased.
Q: What are the benefits?
It is capable of processing multi-materials in a MRF.
Q: Where has it been used?
In 2010, it was installed at the Biffa MRF in Edmonton, north London.
Q Any savings?
There is no need for a baler operator so the main saving is in labour costs. However, with the volume of throughput, waste into profit can be significantly improved.
Q: What about maintenance?
Customers are reporting a dramatic decrease in main-tenance cost and linear wear.
Q: What is its life span?
Structurally, the baler could last 20-30 years. As far as the liner life goes, they could last up to 30,000 hours depending on types of material.
Q: How is it future-proofed?
A team of engineers with more than 150 years’ combined engineering experience in the field of baler and shear design has worked on the IPS range. Their expertise is used to develop improved products.
