Suitable for platforms and offshore environments
Free of interacting metal and electrical parts
Offshore waste reduction and compaction
Deep and wide pressing chamber
Automated bale-out mechanism
94cm2 floorspace footprint
Working in offshore environments requires meticulous attention to detail in rigorous circumstances. The Mil-tek 306-O eliminates the headache of offshore waste management by compacting and baling all cardboard or plastic waste.
Despite having a floorspace footprint of just 94 cm2, the Mil-tek 306-O Is capable of making bales upwards 225 kg.
Featuring a deep pressing chamber and a wider door opening than the 205-O, the 306-O is ideal for large scale rigs that handle large volumes of cardboard and plastic packaging waste. The compaction ensure waste and excess packaging is neatly stored with minimal fuss and minimum floor space used. Bales from a 306-O fit neatly onto a standard Euro pallet, making them easy to store and transport.
In addition to powerful compaction technology, the 306-O has had several unique modifications to it that enhance the safety features. Powered exclusively by compressed air, it contains no inherent risk of hydraulic or electrical fault. The machine also has no interacting metal pieces that could cause a spark; an important deterrent in high-risk environments like oil or gas platforms.
The 306-O features an automated bale-out function that allows users to simply, safely and quickly empty the baler.
Danisco is one of the world's leading producers of food ingredients and bio-based solutions. They use Mil-tek balers to optimise their waste handling process.
Intersport is an international sporting goods retailer. They placed their Mil-tek 306 in the warehouse where all stock is delivered and unpacked.
BT are a global supplier of handling equipment, and part of the Toyota Material Handling family. The use 8 Mil-tek 306 machines for their flexibility and reliability.
For offshore platforms, it may not be practically possible for a Mil-tek technician to complete the installation, but you will be guided through this process in line with strict safety standards. Mil-tek machines are powered exclusively by compressed air.
Fill the chamber with waste material and close the door. Once the handle is pressed down, the pressing plate is activated. The central cylinder has a bale-out indicator showing you when the chamber is full.
Once the bale out indicator shows that the bale is ready, tie the bale with the banding provided. A bale out button releases the bale, which fits neatly onto a standard Euro pallet.
The 306-O has been specifically modified for offshore environments. Modified cylinders eliminate the risk of spark or inflammation The machine also features a custom 2-handed mechanism to return the pressing plate that ensures the operator cannot endanger themselves during the bale out process.
None; the machine is free of electrical components and hydraulic oil. There are no springs or moving parts that could cause spark, and the pressing plate has been partially covered with a thin latex foam, to prevent any friction or heat build up against the chamber wall.
Yes it can. The machine is free of electrical components and can installed in outdoor conditions. If you intend to install a machine outdoors, we recommend you speak to one of our consultants about rust-free and stainless options.
Pneumatic machines are extremely quiet (less than 70 ). By not requiring hydraulic motors or electrical components, pneumatic machines like the 306-O can operate in working environments without interrupting a normal conversation.
The 306-O is specifically modified to operate on offshore platforms. For environments where safety is paramount and space is minimal, a waste reducing baler like the 306-O is an ideal addition.
The small floorspace footprint and added safety features ensure that the 306-O brings no inherent risk to the platform crew.
A strategically placed 306-O on a commercial ship will ensure the crew continue to operate under lean principles: minimize waste, maximize available space.
A 306-O can be combined with a stainless steel compactor like the XP200S to create an effective offshore waste management solution.
Busy cruise ships can have hundreds of crew members and thousands of guests. A Mil-tek 306-O will minimize the waste packaging created in feeding and housing all of these people.
In baling and compacting waste, cruise ships create an effective solution to offshore waste management and reduce their overall carbon footprint.
