Frequently Asked Questions
If you generate any type of waste or byproduct that can be recycled, you could use a baler to reclaim your valuable materials and save waste removal costs.
- Eliminating the cost to have waste hauled off.
- Better for the environment.
- Compacted materials take up less space.
- In most cases baling can be a profitable investment.
Local or national materials brokers will purchase most baled products. Many facilities that produce a type of product (for example plastics) will use a percentage of recycled materials in their manufacturing processes. Some “green" manufacturing facilities will only use recycled materials.
The type and size of the baler required for your application will vary. It’s best to call one of our knowledgeable sales staff to assist you. Some key information you will need to provide will be:
- What is your product?
- How will you want to feed it?
- What is your running volume?
- What weight and size bale do you require?
We can custom configure our balers to fit each individual application, or build completely custom balers for specific applications.
Most of our balers are capable of baling multiple materials, but it ultimately would depend on the model of baler and the material in question.
This is usually determined by the volume of material you are processing. Auto-tie balers have a much larger volume capacity per hour because they can tie the bales off much faster than manually tying.
Baler cost will depend on your particular requirements. IBC does offer a full line of balers, from entry-level verticals to high-volume auto-ties and two-rams.
IBC does not at this time offer “in-house" financing, but we work with several outside financing companies that can assist you.
We build many different types of balers to cover a wide variety of materials. If your material is something that we have not dealt with, you can provide us with a sample for testing to determine the proper unit for your application.
This will depend on how often the baler is running, and also location (hot or cold climates). Our auto-ties come standard with an oil cooler, and our two-rams are standard with both a cooler and heater.
Depending on the model baler, we have many different options, please speak with one of our sales staff in regards to options.
IBC meets or exceeds ANSI Z 245.5 safety standards for balers, and our control panels are UL approved.
We do offer installation services, as well as operational and maintenance training. Costs are specific to each application.
IBC can supply you with a list of recommended hydraulic fluid specifications.
Baling wire type, length and thickness will vary, depending on the model baler and the material being baled.
We have a network of dealers around the country in most market areas, call our sales department for more specific details.
