Aluminium Cans Balers - Compaction Know-How

Aluminium cans are a demanding type of material. The cans are hard to crush with a lasting result and it is difficult to keep the small fractions together in a bale. However, we offer heavy duty compaction solutions and cross-binding baling for the most successful result.

The value of aluminium cans is constantly changing and ever increasing, so recycling this waste stream is always worth looking into.

Compaction ratio: 3:1-7:1                    Bale weight: 40-200 kg
