Larger, heavier bales aid expansion

A Bollegraaf HBC 120 baler is now an integral part of the expansion of Parry & Evans, a family­-managed recycling business with centres in Deeside and Welshpool.

The company chose to install the HBC 120 to increase its processing rate and offer its recycling services to a wider range of customers. It will be used to bale sorted paper and cardboard before it is shipped out to be recycled.

The baler is capable of processing a larger quantity of heavier bales. Its variable frequency drive enables it to run at a low RPM, so it can default to standby mode after 180 seconds when not being used. This eco-design offers savings of up to 30% on energy costs.

The HBC 120 produces more compact, heavyweight bales at the lowest operational cost, achieving a processing rate of 3,000 tonnes a week for Parry & Evans.

Looking to the future, the HBC 120 will match the volume and type of recyclables handled by the recycler, with options to further adapt as the business develops.
