Bergmann Direct now provides fully automatic RDF balers with a wrapper, which uses PET wires for tying.
The UK market requires plastic or twine ties on wrapped bales as the whole bale can then be burned. Up to now this has meant that baling refused derived fuel (RDF) waste has been a high-cost exercise as only the most expensive balers on the market had a plastic-tie option.
An innovative modification has enabled us to use PET plastic wire on a traditional steel-wire channel baler. The result is a high quality RDF baler which can bale RDF at a reasonable price!
PET wire is just as strong as steel wire but it can be burned. Being plastic, it retains some memory so one of the key modifications to the tying system requires the PET wire to be twisted more often to be secure. But that's about it. You get a fantastic RDF baler for a fraction of the price of a typical RDF baler.
The McHale 998 Square Bale Wrapper will wrap RDF bales in less than one minute (up to 50 per hour including feeding and discharge time). With the BDL900V5 RDF baler you can bale up RDF in up to 7 tonnes per hour.
The McHale 998 is designed for agricultural bales but bales RDF extremely well. Around 20% of all 998s produced each year are now used for RDF.
The 998 has an in-feed conveyor which picks up the bale and positions it on the centre rollers. As soon as the bale is detected by the sensor the wrapping mechanism turns the bale 360 degrees on all angles, completely wrapping the bale, cutting off the wrap material and discharging the bale ready for the next one.
