Commercial and Industrial Baler Solutions

A baler is a piece of equipment that helps commercial and industrial facilities minimize waste in their building. Commercial and industrial trash balers, for instance, reduce the size and volume of materials, which may lead to a reduction in hauls. In most cases, this leads to significant savings in waste. The use of commercial garbage balers allows companies to reduce the amount of labor, time, and energy spent in the recycling process. Each recycle baler is configured to your unique operation and built to manage a variety of waste streams. Our experienced team will help you find a baler that’s right for your needs.

Balers: Essential Machines for Recycling

Recycling is something that all businesses should practice. It’s an effective way to show corporate social responsibility (CSR) to your customers and stakeholders. By adhering to a recycling policy, your business could minimize the amount of trash that goes into landfills.

Companies also save money with recycling. With a centralized recycling plan, businesses don’t have to hire janitorial staff to gather every employee’s recyclable waste on every desk.  

If your business produces a lot of recyclable waste, you need a commercial or industrial high-quality baler to ensure that they’re packed, stored, and transported efficiently. Some recycling baler machines may also be configured to handle harder materials like plastic. Know what these industrial baling equipment are, how they work, and how they can enhance your waste management system’s productivity.

What are Balers?

Balers were originally used for farming. They were utilized to compress crops like cotton and hay. However, some businesses saw that these machines are also efficient at compacting recyclable materials like cardboard and paper into manageable chunks. Now, some of these machines are created specifically for recycling, like our line of vertical, manual-tie, auto-tie, and two-ram balers.

How do Balers Work?

Balers work similarly to commercial and industrial compactors. They’re equipped with hydraulic rams that compress materials until they’re in an ideal shape and size. After this, each “bale” is tied up and ejected into a trailer for transport.  However, the speed and efficiency of your operation depend on the type of machine you’ll get.

Vertical Baler

This is the simplest type to use. Just load the machine with stacks of cardboard, paper, or aluminum, close the door, and activate the machine to compress the load. After compacting the materials, you can then tie them up with rope and haul them away with a forklift.

Horizontal Baler

This can automatically load, compress, and eject recyclable waste using a conveyor belt. Our horizontal balers come in manual-tie and automatic-tie variants.

Two-Ram Baler

With two high-powered rams, this machine can produce denser bales than its single-ram counterparts, which ultimately saves you storage space. Machines like the Galaxy2R even allow you to customize the width of each bale.

Choosing the Right Baler For Your Needs

The type of baler you should get depends on the size of your recycling operations. If you’re just starting out, a vertical baler can get the job done. But if you’re scaling up, you may want to take advantage of the automatic features of horizontal and two-ram balers to make recycling faster and more efficient.

Consider these factors when choosing a new commercial baler for your needs:

What type of material are you baling?

First, consider your waste stream. Does it include paper and cardboard? Do you deal with a lot of plastic? Or are you looking for a baler specifically for metal waste? A single-ram machine is adequate for typical office waste but a two-ram baler is more suitable for tougher materials.

Where do you plan to install the baler?

Another thing you have to consider is your working space. Is there available space for a baler? Where do you plan to situate the machine? There has to be ample space in the machinery’s surrounding area to ensure the safety of your staff.

What’s your projected waste flow?

When you buy an industrial baler machine, you should treat it as an investment. You have to consider the pros and cons before getting one for your business establishment or industrial facility. Ask yourself these questions: Will you need it for a short period of time or for years down the line? If you need it long term, does your projected waste remain the same or does it increase? Consider these when choosing the equipment.
