Wilts Wholesale is a wholesaler of electrical supplies and equipment in the UK. A Mil-tek 306 has overseen significant annual savings on their waste costs.
Breadwinner is an Australian catering and sandwich firm. They chose a Mil-tek baler for the financial benefits, its flexibility and usability.
Pinguin are one of Europe's largest frozen vegetable manufactures. The introduction of a Mil-tek 306 baler has seen significant improvements in their waste cost, logistics and hygiene.
A Mil-tek technician will guide you through installation, which is done by simply connecting your 306HD Baler to a compressed air supply. You are now ready to start minimizing your waste.
Fill the chamber with cardboard or plastic and close the door. Once the handle is pressed down, the machine is activated and the minimizing has begun. Repeat this process until the baler is full.
When the baler is ready to be emptied, tie the bale using the banding, open the lower door and press the Bale Out button to release the bale. You are now ready to start a new bale!
The 306 and 306HD are similar in size and carbon footprint, but the 306HD has more powerful cylinders that handle higher volumes of waste and produce denser bales. What you need to know is the approximate amount of e.g. cardboard you generate every day, in what stream and in what sizes it comes. This basic information combined with your business set-up forms the basis for evaluating which model machine is best suited for your requirements.
Your internal working processes and the data available on your waste streams will provide you with that answer. Together with Mil-tek, we will ensure you find the optimal spot in your workplace.
The machine can stand either indoors or out - most important is that you place the machine so that you sort your waste at source. If you place the machine outside it must be under a roof. Be aware that cold weather conditions can influence the performance of the machine. Your Mil-tek consultant will help analysing the best place to install the machine.
As they are air-powered (pneumatic) rather than hydraulic, Mil-tek balers are extremely quiet. If you have an existing air-line you simply plug the machine and then your existing compressor acts as the engine. If you need to have a compressor installed, a Mil-tek technician will ensure that the compressor is placed at a distance from the machine and then install an air-hose between the compressor and the machine.
Ideal for baling plastic packaging typically used in the transportation and protection of clothing and consumable items. Constant pressure ensures an extremely dense bale is produced that is both easy to handle and easy to recycle. The baler can also be used to recycle smaller volumes of cardboard in small/medium supermarkets, convenience stores and general retail outlets.
The wide door and deep chamber of the Mil-tek 306HD baler means large volumes of cardboard can be baled without the need for breaking down or flat packing. Plastic packaging stored in Mil-tek plastic bag stands can be placed directly into the baler saving time and therefore cost when dealing with packaging waste.
The modern waste technique of segregating and baling packaging waste using strategically placed recycling points has resulted in a significant increase in productivity across a range of organisations. A Mil-tek 306HD baler accompanied by a small plastic baler (such as a model 102 or 205 baler), and strategically placed plastic bag stand can vastly improve logistics where a steady stream of packaging waste is created in multiple areas.
