Tomelilla, Sweden — Bigger isn’t always better – and that’s definitely true of Presona’s latest LP Series baler. The smallest baler in the LP Series to date, Presona will launch the new LP 50 EH this summer and likewise the new LP 60 EH.

The new LP 50 EH is designed so that it can easily replace its predecessor but with the benefit of the ECC tying unit which means that no support legs are required. Its size makes it ideal for locations where space is at a premium. But its diminutive design belies a ferocious baling capacity. The new baler has an average hourly throughput for cardboard of up to 10 tpa, maximising material handling even in space‐limited locations.

Suitable for baling most materials from paper and cardboard to plastic film and PET‐bottles, the new LP 50 EH is typically fed by a conveyor system and is available with two motor options, 22 kW and 37 kW. A wide range of bespoke options are available to tailor its performance to specific requirements.

Designed for simplicity and flexibility

Designed for simplicity of operation and flexibility of function, the new baler will incorporate all of the benefits of its bigger LP Series siblings as standard. For example, it will feature Presona’s ECC tying unit with overhead straight needles, removing the need for a needle pit or support legs.

The new LP 50 EH builds on Presona’s ‘plug‐and‐play’ functionality. Manufactured to order, standard models are designed for fast and efficient shipping, installation and commissioning.

Within increased materials handling capacity

The LP 60 EH is the newest baler in the LP Series range. With two motor options and an optimized throughput for a wide range of recyclables, it is said to be one of the most efficient balers on the market.

The LP 60 EH is the next sibling in the new LP Series family and builds on the same principles and design as the LP 60 VH, LP 85 VH and the LP 110 CH models. It has, like its bigger siblings, all the advantages built in, the design, the performance, the energy efficiency and the reliability.

The new model has a 37 kW or 45 kW motor and, can deliver an average throughput of up to 12 tonnes an hour of cardboard. With an increased press force of 60 tonnes, bale weights are increased and handling and transport costs reduced. Compared to the LP 50 EH, it offers significantly increased materials handling capacity and is also available with a Waste Design option (replaceable Hardox wear plates) for difficult and abrasive materials.

Benefitting from Presona’s prepress technology

Fully customisable with a range of bespoke options, the new balers benefit from Presona’s prepress technology. When compared to a traditional shear baler, this delivers a significant reduction in energy costs as all of the power goes into the compaction process. And, because the process is more streamlined, the units suffer less wear and tear, emit less noise, and are more streamlined than their counterparts.

Suitable for rugged applications with high throughput rates, the new Presona baler will accept and process most materials, from paper and PET‐bottles to household and industrial waste and is typically fed by means of a conveyor system.
