A press for waste paper is a useful tool in working with waste

Види відходів

The problem most companies face, even small ones, is waste. First of all, these are paper, cardboard, and plastic waste. If they are stored in a warehouse, they take up a lot of space, so various devices are created, thanks to which it is possible to reduce their volume and store them more compactly. One such machine is a press for waste paper.

Presses for waste paper used to reduce dimensions:

  • cardboard;
  • paper;
  • foil;
  • PET bottles;
  • plastic;
  • foam plastic;
  • textiles;
  • and other materials.

Thanks to such devices, garbage disposal will cost less, and its storage will become much easier.

The press for waste paper allows you to reduce the amount of raw materials loaded into the working chamber by 50-90%. As a result, compact packages are produced, which, when stored in this form, take up much less space. In addition, they are easier to load and transport.

Today, there are many different types of presses for waste paper on the market, which differ in such parameters as:

  • size and weight of compressed bales;
  • pressure force;
  • productivity.

There are also presses for different types of materials (paper, plastic or light metals).

What waste is suitable for pressing?

A specific model of the press can be used to work with different materials. That is why you can often find presses for cardboard and wastepaper, as well as foil presses on the market. This equipment can also be used for pressing organic waste, as well as PET bottles, textiles and Styrofoam.

Larger models of presses also allow you to press aluminum cans, hard plastic, steel barrels and other hard materials such as wooden boxes.

The working principle of a waste paper press

Presses for waste paper are machines that mostly work automatically. By ordering such equipment from our company, you can be sure that it will be an investment for many years. The operation of the press is based on the placement of waste in a special chamber and its compression using a pressing plate.

The plate presses the waste with great force, thanks to which the volume of compressed waste is significantly reduced. After pressing, waste paper, foil and cardboard are removed from the chamber in the form of compressed bales. Depending on the model of the press, the pressing plate acts on the waste with a pressure of 3 to 50 tons.

Which press for waste paper is better to choose?

If you are planning to buy a press for waste paper, you need to consider several important details. Similar devices are available in different models and sizes. They can be used to compact waste of varying degrees of hardness.

To purchase a press for waste paper, you need to evaluate the following parameters:

  • the type of materials you will press;
  • volume (quantity) of waste;
  • as well as the force of pressure on them.

There are automatic hydraulic presses and manual – mechanical presses on the market. From the point of view of the optimal choice of mechanical presses, it often makes no sense to buy, because for the enterprise, the difference in price is not so significant, and the productivity is significantly lower.

Also, a physically strong person is needed to work with such a press. Whereas a hydraulic press can be operated by a person with little physical strength. Therefore, we recommend for work – automatic hydraulic presses, which provide fast and efficient pressing of waste.

Automatic hydraulic presses are very easy to operate. In them, the workers only put the waste in the chamber, and after compaction, they tie it up and take it out of the machine.

The harder the materials to be pressed, and the larger their volume, the greater the pressure force the press should have. In small enterprises, where the production of waste is not large, presses for waste paper with a lower pressure force (about 5-7 tons) will be suitable. Larger businesses often require more specific equipment with a pressing force of more than 10 tons.
