B3 Vertical Baler for Cardboard | Plastic

Vertical balers are used to bale recyclables into solid blocks, these are referred to as bales. This reduces the need for wheelie bins on site whilst also reducing the costs and environmental impact of waste collections. In time the bales are collected by a waste processor for revenue. 

If you are looking to combine high compaction with a small footprint and low height, the B3 Baler is the right machine to further investigate. This modestly sized model at 940 x 715 x 1885mm will fit perfectly within smaller companies searching for more efficient waste solutions. The B3 produces bale weights of 30-50kg with cardboard and 40-60kg with plastic. 

We appreciate that we offer a comprehensive range of vertical balers, our technical sales team are more than happy to help you find the right baler for you.

Who will buy my bales?
There are numerous recyclers who are always looking for baled cardboard and plastic to take off people’s hands. We can put you in contact with recyclers who are local to your business and more than happy to collect or purchase your bales.
What materials can I bale with this machine?
The Bramidan B3 baler is suitable for cardboard, plastic foil and paper waste. You can use it to bale all three types of materials, just not at the same time - this is because waste contamination must be avoided, otherwise recyclers may refuse to purchase your bales and instead you will have no other option than to send the waste to landfill. Therefore, we recommend that you sort your waste and make separate bales.
Who is the B3 baler best suited for?
The Bramidan B3 vertical baler is the smallest machine in our range (it requires less than 3 square metres of floor space and has a height of 1.9m), making it perfect for retail businesses or one’s with less space in their warehouse/facility. The B3 baler produces bales sized between 30 kg and 60 kg depending on the type of material, and boasts a 24 second average cycle time meaning that it’s capable of handling even the busiest of environments.
How do I maintain this baler?
Baler maintenance is key if you want your machine running smoothly all year round. During the machine installation, we go through a quick product training with you to ensure that you understand how to use and maintain this specific baler. The baler also comes with a manual that walks you through a daily maintenance checklist. We’d also recommend considering a baler servicing plan which offers regular preventative maintenance visits, during which our qualified engineers will check the machine out, apply grease where needed and fill the machines up with oil, as well as provide you with a certificate of inspection which is often required for health and safety audits.

It features a magnetic door switch that turns the press plate off whenever the door is opened, no gaps or open slots are present on the baler and two buttons must be pressed simultaneously to eject the bale, thus ensuring that it cannot be done by accident.
