- Review and eliminate unnecessary waste: Getting rid of waste in your business or at least reducing it is the first step to reducing waste management costs.
- Segregate and recycle waste: The ease and efficiency of recycling can be improved by improving waste segregation.
- Decrease the volume of organic waste.
- Reduce polystyrene waste volume and release value.
- Reduce wood volume.
- Turn food waste to into valuable power.
- Increase efficiency by weighing your bales: To reduce fuel costs, optimize resources, and create more accurate forecast revenues, knowing the weight of bales of waste is crucial.
- Reduce the volume of waste to save on transportation costs: Almost all remaining waste can be baled, reducing size, and reducing transportation costs.
Types of material that can be bailed
Paper products: There are many products made from paper that can undergo baling and recycling, such as periodicals, books, magazines, cardboard, or even newspapers.
E-Waste: Those products are referred to as electronic waste. Electronic products are composed of many parts that can be compressed and crushed to free up space. The electronic parts in fridges and cars are also considered e-waste products.
Cartons: The compression act of baling helps to get rid of the air and excess weight. Additionally, it reduces the material’s size, which makes it easier to store and transport. A carton is a useful tool for storing food before it is sold. There are two types of cartons, refrigerator-only cardboard and shelf-stable cardboard.
Non-Ferrous metals: Materials that have iron components undergo a different process of compression. Recycling these materials reduces the cost of using them in packaging products, such as soda cans, since they are less expensive.
Plastic: There are many shapes and sizes of plastic moldings that require baling. This makes it necessary before they can be remolded into other shapes.
Tires and textile materials: Baling a tire is no simple task; however, the right tools can make this challenging material susceptible to compression. When subjected to baling, a tire can be compressed to almost half of its initial size: thus, making it easy to transport and store.
Things to consider before Buying Baler Machine.
Decide whether you need a vertical baler or a horizontal baler by defining the type of material you need to handle. Each product has its own characteristics and reacts differently to compression.
- Production capacity: The main factor affecting the output is the nature of the material and the package size. The production rate varies from one type of baler to another. No matter what type of baler you use, hard-to-compress materials and bigger bag sizes will result in a lower production rate.
- Machine sturdiness: Depending on the material handled and the working conditions in the plant, you may need heavy-duty equipment. The baler should be designed and manufactured for the type of material and environment you work in. Some machines, such as a four-station baler, are specially made to operate 24 hours a day and to handle materials that are difficult to compress.
- Safety: To ensure operator safety, it’s important to understand what safety devices are included in the equipment.
- Consider the available space in your plant when choosing your baler. Horizontal balers will tend to have a larger footprint, while vertical balers will require more height.
- Local Support: Choose a supplier with local offices or a support team so that you can build a long-term relationship.
- Supplier’s experience: Choosing a supplier who has handled the same product and faced the same challenges as you might be wise.
- Budget: Obviously, budgeting is vital. While getting new equipment may seem like a huge investment, it will increase productivity and deliver better results with less maintenance. Calculating your ROI is essential to know how long your investment will pay off.
