The new MP 270 MH makes recycling cheaper
 

KALMEC Export and Presona, one of the leading suppliers of automatic balers in the Arabic world with 55 plants delivered to the region, and more than 2500 all over the world, have introduced 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 cost-effective, says Presona.

“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, nicknamed “Mega”, is intended for recycling and sorting plants or other businesses that bale large quantities of material. “The design’s super-high capacity means that it can replace several smaller balers at a significantly lower cost. The cost per baled ton drops significantly when you use a MP 270 MH,” comments Ekström.

Self-optimisation and parallel processes ensure high performance

The basis of MP 270 MH’s high performance is parallel processes and self-optimisation. When the material that is to be compacted falls into the baler, its density is automatically measured and then the baler optimises 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, i.e., more bales per hour. This means that the cost per bale will be lower,” says Ekström.

45 tonnes per hour

The baler has an actual capacity of 45 tonnes of material* per hour. Presona says, that is 50 percent more than their second-largest baler, the LP 140, and three times as much as the smaller LP 60 (*material weighing 50 kg/m3 before baling).

Self-optimisation saves resources

The MP 270 MH’s software for self-optimisation ensures that the machine is always functioning 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 other 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.
