  • Supplying waste handling equipment & services
    to private companies & public sector organisations

    Bergmann Direct supply a full range of vertical, semi-automatic horizontal waste balers and fully automatic horizontal balers.

    Our waste balers can handle all the standard materials such as cardboard, soft plastics (shrink-wrap, plastic sheeting), PET bottles, hard plastics, aluminium and steel cans even difficult materials such as RDF which require plastic strapping and wrapping to be compliant.

    Bergmann Direct supply a range of vertical balers. for cardboard, plastic and metal cans. Mill-size balers are ideal for low to medium volumes (0.3 – 1 tonne per hour) of cardboard, soft plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans. UK paper mills require ‘mill-size’ bales in order to attract rebates on cardboard. Manually loaded and tied off. Bale pressure up to 50 tonnes. View the Vertical Baler range here.

    Semi - Automatic (Manual Tie) horizontal waste balers.are ideal for larger volumes (1 to 3 tonnes per hour) of cardboard, plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans,  where volume loading is required from a bin lifter, bucket, forklift truck or a conveyor. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. The bales are tied off by hand and the bale is fully-ejected before another bale or another material is started. Bale pressure from 80 to 120 tonnes.

    The fully - automatic (auto-tie) horizontal waste required when volume processing 3 to 16 tonnes per hour. Bales are automatically tied off and pushed out (the bale behind pushes out the bale in front). Feeding is typically by bucket, forklift truck, conveyor or chute. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. Bale pressure from 40 to 120 tonnes.

    RDF is a difficult material which is often made up of small particles of residual waste after the main items have been outsorted. It requires a) high pressure; b) plastic ties and c) bale wrapping. You need a plastic tie facility on your baler which RDF balers.use and you will need a bale wrapper aswell. Feeding is typically by conveyor.
