Baler Straps For New Smaller Balers

There has been a recent trend in the baler industry towards smaller balers. These machines are designed for businesses that have a lower volume of waste to process. One challenge that comes along with this trend is finding the right baler strap to fit these new, smaller balers. 

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the options available for baler straps on smaller balers before talking about the industries that get the most out of these smaller balers. 

What is a Smaller Baler Strap?

A smaller baler strap is simply a strapping that is designed to fit around smaller bales. These straps are typically made from a durable high-strength polyester material. While the dimensions of these straps will vary depending on the required strength, they all share one common goal: to provide a secure way to bind smaller bales of material.

Examples of Straps

High-Strength Polyester Strap

One option for baler straps on smaller balers is polyester strap. Polyester is a synthetic material that is strong and durable, yet flexible enough to tie together around the bale. This material is also resistant to UV light, making it a good choice for outdoor applications. Polyester straps are available in a variety of widths and lengths, so it is important to select the right size for your baler.

Metal Clips or Buckles

Another option for securing smaller bales is to use metal clips or buckles. These devices are easy to use and provide a secure hold on the bale. Some recycling centers might not accept bales with metal buckles, so confirm the criteria to follow for a “good bale” to avoid rejection. 

Selecting the Right Strap for Your Baler

When selecting a baler strap, it is important to consider the size and footage of the strap per roll. Some balers might have a compartment with room only for “small rolls”. Most smaller balers are not built to hold rolls with over a thousand feet of strap. It is also important to consider the size and weight of the bales you will process. Typically, the objective is to maximize the weight of the bales, so it is important to select a strap that is strong enough to hold that weight. Baler straps come in many different sizes, so knowing the baler model and the weight of your bales is important.

Examples of Industries That Prefer Smaller Balers

Manufacturing & Distribution Centers

Sustainability is a growing concern for a clean and lean distribution channel. The variety of businesses that face the challenge of space limitations are finding smaller balers as the solution to maintain a smaller carbon footprint and efficiency in recycling various plastic packaging and corrugated materials. 

Food Service & Hospitality

The food service and hospitality industries also take advantage of smaller balers. These machines are used to process general waste, aluminum cans and paper products, such as cardboard, napkins and paper towels.

Recycling

Smaller balers are also popular in the recycling industry. These machines are used to process recyclable materials such as paper, plastic, and aluminum. Smaller balers are often used in combination with larger balers to increase the efficiency of the recycling process.

The Bottom Line

Smaller balers are becoming increasingly popular in a variety of industries. These machines offer many benefits, such as a smaller footprint and lower operating costs. When selecting a baler strap for a smaller baler, it is important to consider the size and weight of the bales you will be processing. Selecting the right strap for your baler is important to ensure the safety of your employees and the efficiency of your operation.
