Balers

Balers create bales of recyclable materials that can then be sold to local recyclers.  Those sales help recover costs that are otherwise wasted in many industries.  If your company already recycles, a Baler can help reduce the number of trips that are made to take that material away.  Many recyclers will also send a truck to pick up the bales of material instead of having to make a trip yourself.  Bales come in both Vertical and Horizontal styles that can handle volumes up to 20,000 pounds of material per hour.  WEST-Pak is the expert in determining what will fit your application the best.

Horizontal Balers are capable of handling much higher volumes of material than Vertical Balers and are ideal for recyclers, Transfer Stations, and Large manufacturing plants.  Horizontal balersd can process many tons per day of materials.  These units are many times conveyor fed to help maximize the efficiency and productivity of the unit.

 

 

Vertical balers are the most common type of equipment used for recyclable materials.  These units use a downstroke platten to crush the material into tightly packed bales.  This both increases the amount of value for each trip to the recycler and cuts down on the total amount of space required to store recyclable materials.  

 

While the most popular size in balers in 60", there are smaller and larger sizes availiable to meet your needs.  anywhere from 36" to 72" bale sizes are availiable.
