60" Vertical Baler

Polystyrene (commonly known as Styrofoam - which is a trademark of the Dow Company), is all around us.  It is commonly used as packing material (peanuts).  Food trays, cups and many other products are made of polystyrene.  Products containing polystyrene usually have a recycling triangle logo with the number 6 inside it stamped on the item. If polystyrene is something you get a lot of; you might be able to sell it.   This 60" baler is your way to package it for resale or recycling.

Comparison Chart on 60" Vertical Balers

The Styrofoam Baler has many important design features that separate it from other balers.

  • When compared to a cardboard baler (trying to do the job of a Styrofoam Baler) these Styrofoam balers can properly handle and eject the styrofoam bales, whereas a standard cardboard baler cannot. 
  • The Styrofoam Vertical Balers use a specially designed configuration for overcoming the memory retention of the styrofoam material. A standard cardboard baler cannot handle this properly. 
  • A Special chamber design is also incorporated in order to permit easier and smoother bale ejection. This modified design is another feature that sets these Styrofoam Balers apart from the typical baler.
  • The Styrofoam Balers also have a special arrangement of Retention Dogs not found on typical balers.
  • In addition to the this basic overview, there are several other differences in the design of the Styrofoam  Balers that make them unique  (some of which are proprietary features).
