Hi-X evo

News! Hi-X Evo 2024 Models Now Come with New Rubber Belts!

Answering to market demand, the Hi-X evo is the latest in waste baling tech. The Hi-X evo is equipped with unique features allowing the machine to handle rougher materials, such as MSW (municipal solid waste) or plastics, where the material consists of irregularly shaped particles. Applying Orkel high-density technology, this compactor model is currently compatible with over 25 different materials and is still expanding to new areas of use.

We take great pride in offering highly customized machines, tailor-made to cover all needs. The Hi-X evo bale diameter is ø115×120 cm, optimized for transportation in trucks and containers.

With the new rubber belts, the benefits are numerous:

  • Reduced maintenance
  • More predictable maintenance
  • Less downtime
  • Quieter operation
  • Reduced material waste

Important Functions

  • Generation X

    The new X-generation of Orkel compactors, including the Hi-X evo, is designed with innovative features to increase the productivity and management of your baling operation.

  • Orkel Precision

    Compatible with our latest smart tech solution, Orkel Precision enables waste management precision for every X-generation compactor owner. Implementing the complete package, you have a Production Management Tool, a Bale Traceability Tool, and a Bale Content Tool at your disposal.

  • Weighing System

    The X-generation of Orkel compactors include an implemented weighing system, saving your bale data for later analysis and fine-tuning of your baling operation.

  • Orkel Touch Control System

    The intuitive touch screen allows for easy operation and supervision of the machine. Features such as the wide viewing angle, screen brightness, and screen contrast offer optimal readability even in direct sunlight. Setting the machine to run automatically you are freed from manual labor, enabling you to shift focus to supervision and fine-tuning of the machine to accommodate to your needs.

  • New Feed Hopper Design

    The hopper of the Hi-X evo is developed to transport rough material into the elevator, while minimizing the risk for overflowing. The angle of the hopper’s rear end is steeper, increasing efficiency.

  • Reduced Elevator Angle

    The elevator has its angle reduced by 30 degrees. This ensures a secure flow of material up the elevator and into the chamber. This reduces the risk of blockages.

  • Larger Passage into the Chamber

    The film tying unit is lifted 20cm, which results in a larger passage between the elevator and the chamber, enabling rougher fragments to pass.

  • Reversable Belts

    The moving direction of the feed hopper, the elevator, and the sub-conveyor can be reversed from the display unit in order to easily resolve any upcoming blockages.

  • Hydraulically Operated Elevator Access Hatch

    The elevator bottom has a hydraulically operated hatch, offering a swift solution for the operator if excessive amounts of material gathers in this area.

  • Air Cleaning System

    The Hi-X evo is equipped with an air cleaning system that blows loose material away from critical areas of the compactor, preventing unnecessary standstills.
