With a deep pressing chamber, the Mil-tek 2205 baler is a small yet flexible baler capable of producing bales of up 120kg (plastic) and 60kg (cardboard). The large cylinder facilitates a regular daily flow of cardboard and plastic waste while the small floor-space footprint of just cm2 makes it ideal for compact, indoor locations like storerooms and food preparation sites. As with all Mil-tek EN16500 balers, the 2205 baler is pneumatically powered, which adds the dual benefits of being hygienic i.e. non-contaminant and low in energy use. Mil-tek's patented ECO-Drive technology ensures that only the required amount of pressure is applied with each stroke, and the pneumatic technology locks the plate in place to apply constant downward pressure without the further use of power. These features mean that the 2205 baler creates extremely dense, compacted bales.On top of industry-leading safety standards, the 2205 now features a bale-out indicator, a cycle counter as well as further internal upgrades.
Agro Korn produce animal feed. It is a great example of just how much waste is accumulated in production. A Mil-tek 205 compacts paper sacks, plastic sacks, and big grain bags.
Mitre 10 are a hardware supplies chain in New Zealand. They found that as their business grew, as did the problem of waste. Mil-tek machinery allows them compact large volumes into small balers.
Puratos supply ingredients for the catering industry. They use a Mil-tek 205 allowing them to hygienically compact paper bags in the working area as they are used, saving them time and money and improving efficiency.
A Mil-tek technician will install your baler in the most optimal location and ensure that all staff are correctly trained.
Fill the chamber with whole cardboard boxes or loose plastic. Close the door, push in the door handle and pull down the activation lever to start the pressing cycle. Repeat until the baler is full.
When the bale-out indicator stays red, the baler is ready to be emptied. Cut the banding, open the lower door and tie the banding with a loop knot.
Over the past number of years, Mil-tek have been a part of a Health and Safety Executive committee created to establish a new series of standards for the safe operation of vertical balers.
Mil-tek has long been committed to user-safety - we have never had a liability insurance claim - but nonetheless, we made a series of changes and upgrades to our existing line up of machines. For more information, please visit www.mil-tek.com/EN16500
Mil-tek machines are designed with safety and simplicity to the fore.
A qualified Mil-tek technician is deployed to train key staff member in the operation and care of the machine. Trained staff are then capable of training other staff in turn.
In addition, Mil-tek provides a wealth of user guides and training videos to ensure all staff should be able to safely operate the machine, as well as bale out, change banding and prepare for a new bale.
No. All Mil-tek machines are pneumatic, meaning that if you already have a compressed air-hose installed, the baler can be simply connected. If you do not have a compressed air-line, power comes via a compressor, requires a standard AC outlet i.e. not a 3-phase, thus avoiding any expensive electrician-related cost.
An annual service is recommended to ensure your machine operates correctly and safely. Furthermore, following this simple practice should ensure your machine lasts well beyond its expected 10-year lifespan. In fact, the first ever Mil-tek baler is still running to this day, over 25 years on!
With a small floor-space footprint of just .29m², the 2205 baler is ideal for installation in small, compact locations like kitchens or storerooms. A regular flow of food arriving in cardboard boxes accounts for upwards of 60% of kitchen waste.
Compacting waste plastic and cardboard at source instead of carrying it outside ensures that staff can spend less time on waste and more time at front of house.
In an industry where hygiene and food integrity are crucial factors, any equipment used to complement the production must also adhere to these factors. The Mil-tek 2205 baler can be located indoors, close to both the production and the source of waste.
The long vertical chamber can produce dense bales of up to 120kg (plastic) and 60kg (cardboard), meaning less time spent transporting and disposing of waste.
The flexibility of the 2205 means that it can easily be installed in small locations like storerooms, waste rooms or even directly into kitchens and food preparation areas.
Most hotels produce a mixed range of waste including plastic and cardboard. A 2205 baler coupled with an XP200 for general waste can significantly reduce waste costs in a medium/large-sized hotel.
