03 MAY 2021
The bale size is one of the criteria for selecting the right waste compaction machine. Depending on the warehouse conditions and logistics inside your company, some prefer small bales that are easy to handle, others prefer large bales. Which baler is right for you?
Efficient waste management thanks to small and large balers
Balers allow for effective and comprehensive reduction of waste in your company, facilitate waste management, and compacted waste can be resold to companies purchasing raw materials. However, if compacting of cardboard or other waste is to be tailored to the company's needs, it is worth choosing the right machine.
Bramidan balers have different technical specifications. Check when you need a small baler for waste and in which cases you should invest in larger balers.
Small balers - easy to place
Our small balers - as the name suggests, have a compact size. Thanks to their small design, they take up little space and can be successfully set up in places with limited space.
Do you have a small room? On our website we suggest where to place your waste baler so that it is convenient to use and the machine does not make it difficult for your employees to move around in the room.
These types of machines allow you to reduce waste to small, handy and light bales, which can be transported and stored without the use of specialized equipment. Bales produced in the smallest B3 balers or slightly larger B4 balers can be successfully handled manually by employees. This reduces the investment and operating costs associated with using forklifts to transport bales.
The weight of the produced bale in the B3 and B4 balers ranges from 30 to 60 kg (cardboard) and from 40 to 70 kg (foil). Thanks to the right configuration, small balers can produce bales weighing up to 60-70 kg. For this reason, the small baler is a perfect solution for small stores, restaurants, petrol stations or other small-area commercial facilities. The B3 and B4 balers are very efficient, producing small bales with a high waste density.
When it is worth investing in medium and larger waste balers
Investing in large balers is a great way to reduce waste and the workload associated with storing and transporting the compacted bales. Compaction of larger bales facilitate warehousing processes, they are easy to store and significantly reduce transport costs.
Bales produced by medium Bramidan balers - model B20 or B30 - weigh from 200 to 350 kg (cardboard) and from 250 to 450 kg (foil). Such bales can be easily removed from the machine, transported on forklifts and stored on pallets.
A large baler will work primarily in companies that have more storage space. Large bales are ejected onto pallets and can only be transported and stored using forklifts. However, larger bale sizes reduce the time needed to load bales for transport and reduce the costs of waste transport to the recyclers. Thanks to this, companies can save both time and money on waste management.
It is a good solution for large retail stores, warehouses and industry.
Are you looking for the right baler for your needs?
Choosing the right baler for your waste is not easy. In order to properly match the baler to the company's needs, it is necessary to verify several key factors justifying the selection of the machine, including: the amount, type and size of generated waste, logistics and the present interior, the amount of space intended for operating the machine.
