Recycle Direct announces innovative new range of Smart Balers

Monday 07 August 2017

Recycle Direct are pleased and delighted to announce their award winning baler.

The RD Smart Baler does things a little bit differently. If you’re investing in a baling system, you’ll need a robust machine that allows for the growth of your business. The RD Smart, is a one of kind, with the ability to grow when your business grows, reducing the need to purchase a new machine each time your capacity increases. 

The RD Smart Baler innovatively uses a ‘bolt-on’ system to increase the capacity and performance, allowing you to use the same machine whilst reducing costs and improving efficiency. 

Designed and manufactured in Bridgend, South Wales by Recycle Direct, the new range of balers is an addition to their variety of recycling systems, along with their highly skilled team engineers with the ability to provide comprehensive servicing solutions. 

Established in 1999, Recycle Direct was founded by two former service engineers, who had the ambition to provide reliable, fast and inexpensive spares and servicing to their customers.

The Smart baler can easily manage everything from plastics to RDF with a throughput capacity of 5 to 16 tonnes per hour. The RD60 base model weighs 23 tonnes, with the ability to produce bales of 750mm in height and 1100mm wide, and variable in length, 4 wire auto tyer, remote diagnostics and process data recording as standard. The RD Smart Baler is also able to add on those little extras, with the option of adding a bale wrapper, conveyor, refuse platen and a comprehensive service plan to ensure smooth operation around the clock. 

Recycle Direct offer a full engineering service for the recycling sector with core business or servicing balers, compactors and conveyors. We also manufacture balers, conveyors, sorting platforms and storage bins.
