Types of balers
1. Automatic balers
Any worries about expensive and difficult-to-maintain equipment for waste baling can now go away. Automatic balers are available in various models, so you will surely make the right investment in the long term, significantly reducing your expenses and fully serving your business activities.
Find out which are the most important characteristics that differentiate them.
Regardless of how big your business is, you can easily choose the most suitable automatic baler. Their size varies from small, medium and large, so they can successfully serve various businesses.
In turn, each type of baler is manufactured in various models depending on the type of recyclable waste to be baled.
Types of waste baled
Unlike other equipment that is designed to handle a single type of recyclable waste, each automatic baler model is specially designed for baling a wide range of waste.
Thus, you can easily manage waste such as: foil, PET bottles, paper, textile, RDF, household waste, straw, cardboard, crates, biodegradable waste or plastics. Therefore, depending on the nature of the activity you carry out, you can decide which is the most suitable for your business.
The efficiency of the balers
Depending on the size of the baler you want, it is good to know in advance that both their bailing cycles and their productivity differ. It is important to note that the two characteristics are directly proportional to the size of the baler.
As a result, the small baler models have a baling cycle of 26 s or 36 s and a productivity of 49 – 60 m3/h, respectively 35 – 40 m3/h. In the case of the medium ones, the bailing cycle is 20 s or 22 s long, and the productivity of each cycle is 100-163 m3/h, 135 – 155 m3/h or 70-125 m3/h.
As for large balers, the cycle is 12 s, 13.5 s or 26 s long, and the productivity is 400 – 500 m3/h, 342 – 400 m3/h, respectively 160-200 m3/h.
2. Semi-automatic balers
The major difference between the two major types of balers is that, in the case of automatic balers, the waste bales are bound automatically, while the use of the semi-automatic ones involves the manual binding of the bales.
In this situation, as well, there are three major aspects that distinguish them, as follows.
The size of the space served
Whatever the space you have, you can be sure that a semi-automatic baler will adapt smoothly to it. Being horizontal or vertical, they easily fit into any room.
Moreover, if needed, they can be easily moved to help streamline your business processes.
Range of waste baled
In this case, as well, there is a variety of recyclable waste that can be managed using only one semi-automatic baler. As a result, there can be baled waste such as: PET bottles, cardboard, foil, plastic, textile, straw, household waste, paper, RDF, plastic crates, sponge or any other type of recyclable materials.
Depending on the weight of the recyclable waste requiring baling, the semi-automatic baler models serve a certain load. Therefore, horizontal balers can press 36, 50, 60 or 65 tonnes.
In the case of vertical balers, the bailing force is of 18, 25 or 50 tonnes.
