Waste balers are a type of heavy-duty machinery, used for the compression of waste materials into small bales or bundles. Waste balers can process a variety of waste materials, including odd sections of cardboard, foam rubber, plastic along with virtually any waste products that occur during production, including municipal solid waste. Waste balers are used not only for the compression and easy disposal of waste, but also to help create a secure bundle in which to transport waste to a repurposing or recycling facility.
A waste baler may be designed to fit the needs of its user, varying based on size and type of materials they wish to compress and transport. The basic design of a waste baler, however, consists of three main parts: the container, the compactor and the power unit. First, waste is collected in the container. Once it is full, the waste is compacted into a bundle or bale by the compactor.
Commonly, this compaction is followed by a wrapping process. Wrapping waste bales helps further protect them for future use. It does so by protecting the bundle from water damage and by making sure it is contained, lessening the likelihood of issues like wind-blown litter, odors, vermin or damage caused by dislodged waste.
Waste balers are an advantageous purchase or rental for a number of reasons. Waste balers often make it possible to collect even the smallest pieces or shards for baling, like unsellable pieces of textile cloth or shards of scrap metal. Additionally, they are an economical choice for waste collection and transport, whether that is for the purpose of disposal, recycling or selling to another company for repurposing.
An indirect benefit of waste balers is the revenue created by this efficient collection and redistribution system. Depending on the size of your business and the extent of your compacting needs, you may consider purchasing a waste baler with which to economically dispose of and redistribute your leftover material and waste.
When considering a waste baler, ask yourself the following questions: “What do I plan to bale?” “What is the largest size of the majority of the material?” “How much material will be baled at the busiest hour?” “How will the baler be fed?” “How will the bales be stored?” “What is the shipping method?” “Is there a maximum weight on the shipping conveyance?” and “Will the bales be tied manually or automatically?” Keeping these questions in mind, you will be on your way to making a fantastic investment.
