Staffordshire based waste management company, Wm. M. Briers & Son (Tamworth) Limited, a long established Dicom customer, have just taken delivery of two new Paal balers, to supplement their existing Paal Konti 275F :

1. A Konti 275G to cope with their increased volumes of recyclables going through their Material Export Facility, and

2. An HTR 425 twin ram baler with plastic strapping at the Briers Material Recycling Facility.

The new Konti 275G is the first Paal baler in the country to feature the new stamper and knife designs which will be standard on the 2014 Konti H series. These new features significantly improve energy efficiency and, hence, significantly reduce energy costs whilst increasing the throughput.

In order to grow their business further, Briers needed the flexibility to be able to tender for all types of waste contracts and so they needed a machine capable of baling just about anything. The robust HTR425 twin ram baler fitted the bill perfectly. The patented telescopic tunnel design gives Briers the throughput needed for its MRF residual waste, whilst the plastic strapping means operating costs will be minimised. Once baled and wrapped, material is shipped to its partner’s R1 Energy From Waste facility in the Netherlands.


The MRF & MEF Manager at Briers (Simon Rooke) commented “This has been a large undertaking which has taken a lot of planning to ensure that both facilities selected the right specification balers and that both facilities continued to operate throughout the project.

We are delighted that the whole process went like clockwork and that no processing time was lost.” Simon also commented that “Having operated the old Konti 275F for nearly 5 years, we had no hesitation in purchasing further Paal equipment from Dicom. To be a market leader in the waste management business, you need the best machinery with the best service support and that’s what we have with the new Paal machines backed up by Dicom.”

Over the last 34 years, Dicom Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. The waste compactors are designed and developed for durability, high performance and ease of operation. This is important to organisations wishing to reduce the frequency and cost of waste collections or where space and hygiene are important factors. This is achieved by significantly reducing the ratio of waste from its original volume. Dependent upon the type of material, a Dicom waste compactor can reduce the waste volume by a ratio of 4:1. This ensures that maximum payloads are achieved with each container. Dicom's portable waste compactors can be supplied with several standard options, such as: liquid retentive seals to prevent food waste leakage, bin lifting equipment for lug and comb type waste containers, choice of standard hopper – open splayed, enclosed, dock loading. The static compactors are also available with a range of hopper options and tipping mechanisms and are available in a range of sizes to suit all volumes. Our equipment can be seen working in almost any industry including manufacturing, retail, leisure, hospitals, restaurants, food production, HM Forces, transport, schools & colleges, warehousing and is often used by waste and recycling contractors to process materials such as cardboard, plastics, food and general waste. Our products meet a range of wide and varied requirements, including the latest health and safety standards, and we offer a range of payment options from outright purchase, rental or lease; so regardless of your waste handling needs, Dicom have the solution.
