Distribution centre boosted by baler

2000 middleton baler at helistrat

Helistrat, the waste management consultancy business, has deployed a Middleton Engineering baler as part of the recycling operation at a new retail distribution centre.

The automated Scapa HB60 HM3 channel baler forms part of an inbound goods waste packaging recycling stream. It is linked to a conveyor feeding waste cardboard packaging from goods received at the warehouse and decanted into storage. At peak volume, the plant is designed to handle some 1,200 waste cartons an hour. Baled waste is then sent to reprocessing mills.

Middleton’s HB60 range has a 60-tonne press force to produce high-density, mill-size bales with a throughput of up to 13 tonnes an hour, depending on materials. Compression is adjusted easily to achieve the maximum reduction in waste volume. A small 6.8m-long footprint makes the HB60 ideal for most medium to large operations, and was particularly important for Helistrat’s requirements.

Mark Smith, Middleton engineering director, said: “The Scapa HB60 is an extremely reliable baler, incorporating our proven hydraulic wire-tying technology to produce high-quality bales. Its small footprint and low headroom make it an ideal solution for a wide range of recycling environments.”
