Baler of the month – Plastic balers

Baler of the month – Plastic balers

In this next instalment of our ‘baler of the month’ feature, based on the success of last month’s insight into ‘cardboard balers’ we’ve kept the same format! This time we shine the spotlight on another of our key machines, the plastic baler. Here, Jonathan Oldfield – Riverside Waste Machinery’s MD – looks at the various capabilities of our plastic baler range…

Which models are capable of handling plastic?

For low volumes, we have the RWM25, RWM40 and RWM60.

For low to medium volumes, it’s the RWM75, RWM100 and RWM150.

For medium volumes, we have the RWM200 Multi, RWM250 and RWM300 LH.

For medium to high volumes, we recommend the RWM400 and RWM450 HD.

And for high volumes, it’s the RWM500, RWM500 LH, RWM550HD, RWM600, RWM HZ50T and RWM HZ70T.

Which type of organisations use plastic balers?

Suited to companies handling varying amounts of plastic, machine users include schools, warehouses, recyclers, MRFs, prisons, hospitals, manufacturers, distribution outlets, retailers, offices and hotels, to name a few.

What if there are restrictions on space when using plastic balers on a site?

Due to the wide range of plastic balers available, we have an option to suit virtually every requirement! For example, a business with limited space would suit the range of compact machines – such as the RWM40 – and we also offer low-height machines, such as the RWM300 LH, or RWM 500 LH when ceiling height is restricted.

What bale weights can the plastic balers produce?

Weights range from huge bales of up to 650kg, right down to much smaller bales of 40kg.

What types of plastic can the balers handle?

Depending on the machine, materials include plastic film, PET bottles, plastic bags, light plastics and mixed rigid plastics.

What consumables are required to produce bales with this type of machine?

Baling tape, twine or wire products are suitable, depending on the specific plastic baler used. All these consumables are in stock, competitively priced and are available in various quantities via our online shop.

Is a warranty included?

Yes, a 12 month full parts and labour warranty is included as standard for all plastic balers, and optional service and maintenance packages are also available.
