Presona introduces new baler for recyclers

Published:  13 December, 2016

Baler manufacturer Presona has added a new model to its range, aimed at recycling, waste management and logistics applications.

The LP 50 EH is the latest prepress baler to be added to Presona's popular LP Series and is available in 22kW (LP 50 EH1) and 37kW (LP 50 EH2) sizes.

It features an ECC tying unit with vertical needles from above and it does not require support legs, making it easier to locate within an existing footprint.

It also incorporates the PREMI 50 control system as standard, with the control cabinet attached to the side of the baler to help its compact footprint. If needed, the control cabinet can be placed elsewhere or configured as a separate, movable control panel for flexibility.

The LP 50 EH has an average hourly throughput for cardboard of up to 10 tonnes but can be used to bale a wide range of other materials too including paper, plastic film and PET-bottles. It is typically fed by a conveyor system, which is also available from Presona.

As with all LP Series balers, the new model incorporates Presona's prepress technology to produce an even density throughout the bale and delivers uniform, square bales for easy stacking.

The prepress makes it possible to bale larger material without first using a shredder and it is also more energy efficient as all of the press force is used for material compaction.
