Frequently Asked Questions

Full-ejection horizontal recycling balers: What are they best used for?

Full-ejection horizontal recycling balers are best used for baling materials that are heavier and denser, such as metals, plastic bottles and textiles. The full-ejection design of these balers means that the bales are ejected from the chamber after they are formed, which allows for a more efficient and continuous baling process.

The full-ejection design also reduces the risk of materials becoming jammed in the baler, which can result in downtime and increased maintenance costs. This makes full-ejection horizontal recycling balers a good option for businesses and organizations that need to handle high volumes of dense or heavy materials and want to minimize downtime and maintenance requirements.

Another advantage of full-ejection horizontal recycling balers is their ability to produce uniform bales, which can result in higher recovery values. The full-ejection design ensures that each bale is compact and uniform in size, which can make it easier to transport and process the materials.

Overall, full-ejection horizontal recycling balers are a good option for businesses and organizations that need a reliable and efficient baling solution for dense or heavy materials, such as metal or plastic recycling facilities, textile manufacturers or industrial companies. They are particularly well-suited for situations where a high throughput of materials is required, and downtime and maintenance costs need to be minimized.

Full-penetration, closed-door horizontal balers: What are they best used for?

Full-penetration, closed-door horizontal balers are typically best used for volumes of baling ranging between two bales per day to 100 tons per month. They are used for more difficult to bale materials, such as metals, plastic bottles and sheet paper. They are far more efficient than vertical balers and more cost-effective and versatile than open-end balers.

Full-penetration closed-end balers are also often used in situations where space is limited, as the small footprint and inline feed configuration saves valuable floor space.

Another advantage of these balers is their ability to fully eject bales after tie-off. This results in an easy changeover of material grades. It also eliminates cross-contamination between bales.\

Overall, full-penetration closed-end recycling balers are a good option for businesses and organizations that generate large volumes of material or difficult to bale materials.

Why use a baler for recycling?

A baler is a machine that is used to compress and bind recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, plastics, and metals into compact and manageable bales. Baling is an important step in the recycling process for several reasons:

Saves space: Baling compresses the recyclable materials into dense, space-saving bales that take up less storage space. This is especially important in facilities where space is limited.

Improves efficiency: Baling reduces the number of trips required to transport the recyclable materials, thus improving efficiency and reducing transportation costs.

Increases revenue: Baled materials have a higher value in the recycling market than loose materials because they are easier to handle and transport. This means that baling can increase the revenue earned from selling recyclable materials.

Enhances safety: Baling reduces the risk of workplace injuries and accidents by keeping the recyclable materials contained and organized.

Overall, using a baler for recycling is a cost-effective and efficient way to manage and transport recyclable materials while reducing the environmental impact of waste.
