“A baler is at the heart of any recycling facility and Re-Gen wanted to ensure the design of this new installation achieved the most efficient processing plant possible. One of the main selection criteria, as part of its competitive purchasing process, was the bale weight for plastics. Bollegraaf were the only company who offered the self-learning, electronic control channel pressure. It is self-regulating and adapts to the material being baled in the channel. This system can increase your bale weight by 10 to 20% compared to traditional channel pressure systems. We’re very happy with the results of the final installation. Our goals have been more than achieved, the capacity is enormous. We now work 2-3 hours less per day, big savings!” according to Colin Doherty, Director of Re-Gen.
Self-learning channel pressure The major development is the self-learning, electronic channel pressure control. It is self-regulating and adapts to the material being baled in the channel. This system can potentially increase the bale weight by 10 to 20% compared to traditional channel pressure systems.
Eco-design The motors of the HBC-140 baler are equipped with a frequency drive control, enabling them to run at a low RPM, in case the feed of material is insufficient. This Eco-design saves electricity up to 30%.
One of the most prominent features of these next generation balers is the Variable Frequency Drive resulting in significantly less energy consumption and less noise during operation.
