There are at the moment several thousands of plastic balers being used in the UK and throughout the world. The balers are used for all types of businesses and organisations, such as restaurants, shops, hospitals, recycling companies and so on. The waste baling client list is endless.
Nearly all of these waste balers need compactor strapping to tie the bales, when they are baled. Some of the bigger waste balers need steel wire to bind the compacted waste material. It all depends on the volume of the bale and the pressing force of the waste baler machinery.
The most common waste compactor size is one which produces smaller bales, commonly weighing 20kg to 70kg. These smaller waste compactors usually use rolls of white polyester compactor twine. This is a resilient baler string with an integral polyester interlace, which is strong, durable and trustworthy, providing tensile strength ideal for baling cardboard, plastic, paper and other similar waste materials.
This category of woven polyester tape is ideal for use as it has no sharp edges or ends, to harm employees or the cargo you are transporting. This recommended woven webbing system is also ideal as it cannot come apart down its length like some hot melt systems do. Due to a natural element of elasticity in polyester, when correctly applied this type of baler twine maintains tension, keeping your bales in shape during storage and transit. This type of baler tape is also only 16% of the weight of more costly steel banding tape of similar specification. This tape can easily be disposed of with your normal waste.
When plastic baler users need to get compactor tape, they can often go for the incorrect size of baling tape. You really need to buy tape of a minimum tensile strength to ensure you will possess good dependable tie system.
For the smaller compactors, which make bales up to 150kg, I would suggest the polyester weave Baler Tape from Strong Recycling Balers. This compactor strapping is 9mm wide and rolls are usually 250Metres long. They ordinarily are sent in packages of 8 rolls and are very competitively priced, including VAT and transport.
Many suppliers of waste baling machinery, will offer this indispensable consumable at very high prices. Strong Recycling Balers appear to be much cheaper by comparison. The best method to evaluate baler tape costs is to compare the actual overall cost of delivery and taxes per metre. I.E. in a box of 8 rolls from Strong Recycling, you will be given 2,000 metres of waste baler twine for approximately £105. Another supplier may provide 2,100 metres for £196. It is uncomplicated to see where the value lies.
So it pays to really look around in order to potentially save a lot of money.
Added savings can be made, basically by training your personnel to produce better compressed bales. In my experience of visiting hundreds of sites and training workers to use balers, I have seen that very often the baler is not used to its full capacity. If your bales are coming out slack and loose, then you really need to look at the system for tying your bales. They should come out solid and very tight. This makes storage space and shipping easier. It also means greater compaction, less haulage and in turn, you will use much less compactor strapping.
