ReTec Bale Opener

About ReTec Bale Opener

The ReTec bale opener can open bales of various types of material. Both wired bales and plastic wrapped bales can be debaled with the ReTec bale opener. The machine is provided with a conveyor belt which transports the bales to the drum. The drum is fitted with teeth which loosens the bales. The loosened material will be transported out of the machine in its original form ready to further process.

The debaler can come as a stationary unit or a semi-mobile unit fitted with transport wheels in order to be moved over short distance on-site.
Due to our engineering department, ReTec is able to provide a turn-key-solution fitted to the customer’s needs.
Please read our cases below about the ReTec debaling system for SRF bales for the cement industry and get inspired by the videos where the debaler opens RDF bales on at plant where they make waste to energy. 


The ReTec bale opener opens bales of various materials:
– RDF / SRF bales
– Straw bales
– PET / Plastic bales
– Recovered paper / cardboard bales


The capacity of the ReTec bale-opener depends on the density and size of the bales. Our experience tells us that the capacity is up to 80 bales/h.
