Pressing & Bale Handling

For the lint cotton to be marketable, it must packaged into a finished bale.  Depending upon the region of the world, bale size will either be 20” x 54” x 28” at a density of 28 lbs/ft3 (Gin Universal Density or UD) or 20” x 41” x 28” at a density of 32 lbs/ft3 (High Density or Hi-D).  Lummus offers both UD and Hi-D presses in down-packing (single-story) and up-packing (two-story) versions in capacities ranging from twenty (20) bales per hour to in excess of eighty (80) bales per hour.

 

Bale Handling Systems can either be standard arrangements or custom-configured as required for a specific application. 

The Process

The final system within the gin plant consists of the press and bale handling system.  Depending upon the region of the world, bales sizes are typically either 20” x 54” x 28” at 28 lbs/ft3 density (Gin Universal Density or UD) or 20” x 41” x 28” at 32 lbs/ft3 density (High Density or Hi-D).  Lummus offers both UD and Hi-D presses in both the down-packing Lift-Box Dor-Les® (single-story) and up-packing Premier™ III/Hi-D Dor-Les®) (two-story) versions.  Depending upon the model and configuration of the press system, throughput capacity can range from twenty (20) bales per hour to in excess of eighty (80) bales per hour. 

A variety of Bale Handling System components (dollies, chain conveyors, baggers, scales, accumulators, etc.) provides for any configuration required to move the finished bales for warehousing and/or shipment.
