A new, energy-efficient two-ram baler has been launched by Harris
What is your product?
The Harris HRB240 T-100 is a two-ram baler designed to bale recyclable ferrous and non-ferrous metals, recovered fibre, plastics, RDF and solid waste.
How does it work?
The Two-Ram baling concept was developed by Harris in the 1960s to facilitate the baling of multiple grades of recyclables such that shipping containers could be loaded quickly and easily with optimum payloads, thus minimising transport costs.
Where would it ideally be used?
The HRB 240 T-100 is suited to recycling and waste handling operations with high levels of throughput of multiple grades of materials. It is capable of baling most grades of recyclables and waste, including RDF.
How is it different?
The baler features, as standard, the Harris Combo-Door which closes off the baling chamber, making the machine ideal for baling more difficult grades such as hard plastics. It also acts as a bale release device for the automatic ejection of over-sized bales.
What benefits does it offer?
With an impressive 216 tonnes of baling force and a 10 second dry cycle time, the machine is ideal for baling multiple grades at throughputs - depending on incoming density - of up to 50 tonnes/hour or more. Available with a choice of steel wire strappers or a plastic alternative, the machine is also ideal for RDF applications.
Harris and its UK Distributor Eurobalers will be pleased to quote against individual requirements.
The machine incorporates a number of energy-saving features, including the use of twin, high efficiency 75kw motors and a Harris-designed pre-fill main cylinder. Harris claims up to 40% energy saving compared to similar 150kw machines.
What about maintenance?
Harris’s own UK-based parts and service operation carries comprehensive inventories of spares, and its fully-mobile site engineers are available for installation, training, servicing and trouble-shooting. Harris also offers quarterly or half-yearly service contracts to its customers.
How many have you sold and where?
Harris has sold over 1,000 two-ram balers worldwide, since it launched the original HRB range in the late 1960s. Some of the earliest machines are still in production, almost 50 years later.
