This square bale press for hops is used to package cured hops.
The fully automated mobile HL - 60/M square bale press presses cured hops at a constant pressure to bales measuring 60 x 60 x 120cm.
The press is delivered with one or two forms. It may be programmed to run automatically with a feed conveyor. The mobile design makes it easy to relocate so that a single press may be used at multiple packaging sites.
A major advantage of this type of packaging is the easy handling of the bales, the ability to store on pallets in stacks of six, and maximum use of storage space, not just when using air-conditioned storage space. Pressing does not result in any signifi cant damage
to the hop cones and the loss of lupulin or bale mass is minimal.
