Ever conscious of improving our environment Coca Cola have purchased Pakawaste machines for recycling their alumimium cans and pet bottles.
Coca Cola in Northern Ireland required a solution to dispose of their out of date cans and pet bottles but in some instances they were part filled with liquid.
Pakawaste were able to overcome this issue by installing four Extractpacks - the first baler of its kind to combine baline and draining out of date beverage containers in one step.
These new machines extract the liquid contents and simultaneously bale the containers, either aluminium cans or pet bottles. All the liquid residue is contained in the specially designed collection tray and is then gravity fed into the treatment system.
The bale weights of pet bottles vary depending on density but the average is 120 kgs and for aluminium cans the average weight is 80 kgs.
Heavy duty construction of the machines ensures easy cleaning proving extremely beneficial when it comes to the wasp season.
