Our team completed a large waste and recycling installation over two days for KFC’s new distribution site in Rugby this week.
The site will start to back haul waste and recycling from stores to the site which will enable the take away giant to minimise their waste and maximise their savings.
We have installed various equipment to aid the site to process waste efficiently, this includes our two CB50 vertical balers. One will process shrink wrap and the other one will squash used plastic cooking oil drums, compacting them into high density bales.
The site’s cardboard and received material from stores will be loaded onto the conveyor belt. Material travels through the building to the outside fully automatic baler. The APK D48 with 30kw motor quickly processes cardboard and makes a 500+kilo bale from approximately 200 cages of loose cardboard. The APK baler has an extremely high cycle time of 15 seconds meaning several workers can load the conveyor at the same time without delays in the baling sequence. A fitted oil cooler and heater regulates the oil temperature, adding to the build quality this baler will process trouble free for the term of the contract. A castell locking system and low maintenance gives operatives a safe and fully compliant baler that meets of CE norms and regulations.
Our in house fabricators and design team in Barnsley also built a weather proof canopy to store the baler outside freeing much needed space inside for KFC to utilise.
All residual waste will then be placed in the CP30 portable waste compactor by hand or by using the 1100ltr bin lift.
Capital Compactors and balers installed all the equipment, train staff and then complete maintenance of the machines on a scheduled servicing plan.
We are proud to work with KFC, delivering quality and reliable equipment that will benefit the sites recycling aspirations.
For all recycling and waste equipment needs Capital Compactors & Balers are happy to offer support and guidance on future projects that includes balers capable of processing up 100 tonnes an hour throughput.
