Quick and reliable drainage of full PET bottles, Tetrapaks and drinks cans with the HSM PET FluidEx
Do you have a problem with drinks cartons or cans that have been filled by mistake? Are there times when PET bottles are incorrectly labelled in your production? What happens with packaging containing liquid whose shelf-life has expired? Are you looking for a system for cost-effective Tetrapak recycling? At HSM, you will find a solution for all these problems: the HSM PET FluidEx 600 ensures quick and reliable drainage of full PET bottles, drinks cans and cartons that have been filled or labelled in error or whose shelf-life has expired, such that they can no longer be sold.
Optimal drainage of full containers
The HSM PET FluidEx separates the liquid content from the packaging in a single process, so that the various elements can be redirected for further use or recycling. The bottles and drinks cartons are thrown manually into a loading funnel. Technically, it is also possible for materials to be fed automatically via a lifting and tilting device or conveyor belt. A sophisticated roller construction collects the material and perforates the packaging, allowing the liquid to drain away. The 2-roller technology ensures that virtually all contents are emptied. Packaging and content then go their separate ways: the liquid is effectively discharged by means of a tube or pump and collected in an external waste container. A worm drive presses the separated packaging material, ensuring it is further compacted.
Technical features bring advantages
The cutting unit of the HSM FluidEx is made from a specially toughened steel. Parts of the machine housing are made from stainless steel, so that acidic liquids pose no problem and hygiene standards are reliably complied with. The equipment as a whole is durable and robust, thus guaranteeing a long lifetime. The lateral cleaning apertures and the hinged outlet chutes enable simple cleaning and maintenance.
Other advantages of the HSM FluidEx:
✓ High capacity
✓ Small footprint
✓ Direct integration into existing recycling processes
✓ Ideal as an accessory component for HSM balers
Emptied packaging is sent for recycling
To ensure that the packaging pressed by the HSM FluidEx can be sent for recycling, it would ideally be processed after emptying with an HSM baler or the HSM briquetting press. This would ensure full compaction of the material, enabling it to be transported efficiently.
The HSM BRP 4810 briquetting press compacts large quantities of PET bottles and drinks cans quickly and fully automatically and produces briquettes with a cross-section of 250 x 250 mm. A multilayered compaction system enables a briquette density of around 400 kg/m³ (PET) and around 760 kg/m³ (aluminium drinks cans) to be achieved.
HSM balers – the cost-effective recycling solution
The multifaceted range of balers includes various models which are ideal for compacting PET bottles. For example, the vertical baler HSM V-Press 860 P. In this case, the material is fed in manually and a bale of up to 230 kg in weight is produced and strapped with 4-way wire strapping.
The portfolio of HSM fully automatic channel balers includes various models which can be used for the packaging pressed by the HSM FluidEx. Loading here is continuous, the material is compressed automatically and the bale is automatically strapped with wire. With the various choices and optional features available, our waste management solution can be fully integrated into your existing operations and processes. The design, tailored to suit your requirements, thus makes a significant contribution to the efficiency of the entire system.
