Balers

Balers are machines that compact and bind recyclable materials. A baler uses a hydraulic ram to compact material into a box shape. Compressed bales are then secured with wires. A baler can process paper, cardboard, corrugated boxes, tin or aluminum cans, plastics, or large metal components into dense stackable bales. The bales reduce space required for storage and transportation, and can be moved with a forklift. There is a wide range of sizes for balers. Recycling facilities from small military bases to high volume municipal waste recovery facilities use them to prepare recyclable materials for market. Most recyclables must be baled or a buyer will not accept them.

Balers may be fed by a gravity feeder, a mechanical conveyor, or an air feed system. If the operation calls for the use of the same baler to bale more than one material type, the baler must be specifically designed to handle different materials at different ranges of capacity. Tying bales with wire can be manual or automatic. The number, size, and tension of the baling wires must be adequate for the particular material baled. Throughput capacity for our typical balers is 20 tons per hour. A baler produces no new waste streams.
