These are said to be rugged high-performance balers, designed to aid material handling and cost efficient containerised transportation of recyclates and other waste materials.
The company will also be presenting design, fabrication and installation capabilities for turnkey recycling industry installations, including MRF and sorting line installations large and small, plus conveyor solutions and other associated engineering projects. These include contracts for Amey in Gloucester, Biffa Polymers in Redcar, and a bespoke conveying solution to optimise document destruction for Hampshire-based Ecogen Recycling.
With some 30 models, the Middleton baler range currently includes the semi-automatic ME80 series offering an entry level solution, through to the mid-range HB60 series and the top of the range Twin Ram range, starting with the ME2R80, also available in 100, 120 and 150 tonne configurations. These are designed to bale the widest range of waste streams including RDF and hard plastics and to ensure that maximum bale weights and efficient container loading can be achieved.
Designs incorporate touchscreen controls with production and performance data, bale and time counters, automatic power saving motor controls and fully integrated remote diagnostics enabling customer support direct from engineers in the factory.
With maintenance and servicing experience for most makes of baler currently in operation, Middletons will also be emphasising its refurbishment capabilities to renovate recycling plant to as new condition.
This offers customers a cost effective low carbon alternative to purchasing new plant providing a sustainable option for essential waste balers and other recycling industry plant. Middleton’s refurbishment programme is designed to deliver the same experience as buying new with a completely refurbished machine fit for another period of reliable service.
Engineering Director Mark Smith explains: “For the waste and recycling industry, refurbishing machinery that has reached the end of its working life, makes real sense. We restore most makes of machine to as new condition and can either recondition a client’s existing machine or source and renovate machinery to order.”
