Ken Mills Engineering has just recently commissioned a Twin Ram Baler. This time for the world’s premier petroleum and petrochemical company ExxonMobil in their central African operation. ExxonMobil’s first priority is to avoid waste generation, and then to reuse or recycle waste wherever and whenever safely possible.

The machine has been purchased to handle the recyclable materials being generated within their Oilfields and pipeline transportation operations. This sites main function is the transport crude oil from Chad to Cameroon. Waste materials include card, polythene, paper etc. The Aries Twin Ram baler was selected for its robust compact design, high throughput capacity and high density bales.The fully automatic unit is capable of handling up to 10 TPH.
