Is your facility tight on space for a baler? We've got a solution for you!

Before deciding where to install a waste compactor in your business, you should consider:  

  • stop internal operating processes
  • stop the work flow of your waste stream and storage
  • stop waste handling by machine operators

The best place to install a baler for cardboard and plastic is a location within close proximity of the waste source. It should be installed where it ensures the most efficient sorting and waste compacting.

We know that adverse work conditions can limit available space for placing a baler. However, we believe there is a waste compacting solution for many businesses looking for a better alternative. A Bramidan baler can solve the problem of limited production space in factories, warehouses and back rooms.

None of our balers have external moving parts, which means they can be installed close to a wall. Staff can safely and comfortably operate despite the challenges with space. We have several solutions for placing machinery under racking as well.

Which vertical balers work best in small spaces?

Are you looking for a baler, but are limited by height and space restrictions? Consider a baler with an alternative door - we offer a few different options. The addition of a customized door can conserve valuable space and simplify waste handling. A baler with a sliding door or donation door can increase the efficiency and optimize loading, allowing for more operating space for more important tasks and saves time. This is a proven solution for narrow rooms.

Need to place the baler against a wall? No problem...

Make use of all available space by investing in a machine with a small footprint. Many of our vertical balers can be installed against a wall or under racking. Our smaller balers are equipped with strap holders in the front of the unit, allowing you to easily tie off finished bales.

Two different options for cylinders

We offer balers with either external or internal cylinders - the B-series and X-series. If you have a limited amount of space to work with, we advise you to explore our low profile options. With internal cross cylindres, the X-series vertical balers significantly reduce the overall height of the machine. The equipment can be easily installed under warehouse shelving, racks, or in a small room.

Can I install the baler outside?

We recommend installing the unit inside, but in some cases it can be installed outside as well. If installed outdoors, it must be covered by a roof or lean-to in order to protect electrical components from the rain and snow.

If the baler will be outside during cold weather conditions, it's importnat to use a special hydraulic oil for low temperatures.

We suggest periodic inspections and yearly preventive maintenance to ensure your machinery is functioning optimally. A skilled service technician will check the oil, wear parts, hydraulics, electrical system, and provide maintenance and operational recommendations.
