New kind of baler makes recycling cheaper

Presona is today launching a completely new baler design which will reduce recycling costs while increasing operational efficiency. The new MP 270 MH baler is the first Presona baler built using a revolutionary new design concept that creates super-high capacity while being very cost effective. This means that a single MP 270 MH baler can replace several smaller balers at a significantly lower cost.

“In practice, we have put a turbocharger on a baler. I think we are the first in the world to do that,” says Stefan Ekström, CEO of Presona.

The new baler, which has the fitting nickname “Mega”, is intended for recycling and sorting plants or other businesses that bale large quantities of material.

Self-optimization and parallel processes = super high performance

The secret to MP 270 MH’s high performance is parallel processes and self-optimization. When the material that is to be compacted falls into the baler, its density is automatically measured and then the baler optimizes itself and proceeds to pre-compress the material to 200 kg / m3. The pre-compressed material is then moved to the main press which creates finished bales while new material is being pre-compressed.

“Being able to pre-compress and make finished bales at the same time means that the capacity will be much higher compared to other types of balers on the market. The pre-compression can be compared to a turbocharger – by increasing the density of the added material we get much higher output, ie more bales per hour. This means that the cost per bale will be lower,” says Stefan Ekström.

45 tonnes per hour

The baler has a real capacity of 45 tonnes of material* per hour. That’s 50 percent more than Presona’s second-largest baler, the LP 140, and three times as much as the smaller LP 60.
(*Material weighing 50 kg/m3 before baling.)

Self-optimization saves resources

The MP 270 MH’s software for self-optimization ensures that the machine is always running optimally. This function also reduces the need for staff to set up and change the baler’s programmes. Less staff input decreases the risk of incorrect settings which can prevent the baler from being used to its full capacity.

A real multi-material machine

Like all Presona balers, the MP 270 MH is a real multi-material machine. Whether you want to bale cardboard, plastic film, household waste or newspaper, “The Mega” can do it. There is also a special programme for pressing PET, which can be a difficult material for many balers.

The baler saves money

“This design’s super-high capacity means that it can replace several smaller balers at a significantly lower cost. The cost per baled tonne drops significantly when you use a MP 270 MH,” says Stefan Ekström.
