Bourke Waste increases baler safety with a new Presona

Irish waste management and recycling company Bourke Waste Removal and Recycling Services has replaced its old baler with a new LP 60 VH1 model from Presona.

The new baler, which is being used to compact recycled cardboard, paper, plastics, carpet and various other materials from municipal and business collections, has increased throughput capacity and operational speed. It has also improved operator safety.

Bourke’s previous baler was old and had become unreliable, requiring constant operator supervision and intervention to produce bales of a sufficient quality.

Presona’s engineering team re-designed the existing conveyor pit to fit the new baler and integral conveyor. The new LP 60 baler will process up to 10 tons of loose cardboard an hour at 30kg/m3.

“The Bourke team first saw the LP Series baler at RWM 2014,” said Matt Hawkes of Presona. “It soon became clear that they could significantly improve their operational efficiency by replacing their outdated baler with an LP 60 model.”

Enhanced safety features were a key priority for the Bourke team. Presona’s LP Series balers are CE-marked and meet the EU’s machine directive. Moving parts are protected and fitted with safety switches and automatic shut off has been incorporated as standard. For example, if a shutter or door is opened during operation, LP Series balers stop immediately.

Commenting on the new baler, Stanley Bourke, Managing Director of Bourke Waste Removal and Recycling Services, said: “We are delighted with the new Presona baler. We are very impressed with many features, especially the safety features, easy operation, and excellent bales produced with the automatic tying system. It has increased our output greatly and we are very happy with it.”

Presona LP Series balers incorporate energy efficient pre-press technology. When compared to a traditional shear baler, this delivers a significant reduction in energy costs as all of the power goes into the compaction process. And, because the process is more streamlined, the units suffer less wear and tear and emit less noise.
