Baling wire is one of the most important tools used in the recycling industry. This wire holds the bale together and allows you to transport products easily. If you don’t wrap the bales with wire, they can come apart and spill. This means that you will have to bale the material again and retie it. Unfortunately, less experienced recycling facility owners often cut corners when they purchase baling wires.
They purchase cheap wires and regret their decision at a later date. Wires don’t have to be expensive. There are manufacturers and sellers that provide good quality baling wires at an affordable cost. You just need to find the right supplier and here’s a brief guide on how to do so.
Choose the Type of Wire
Before you make a purchase, you need to choose the right type of baling wire. There are several available in the market, including:
Single-Loop Bale Ties – This wire is used in vertical balers and needs to be tied by hand. Because of this, you will need a good quality wire that is easy to feed into the baler and tie by hand. If the wire isn’t strong, even, and of the right gauge, it won’t be secure and you’ll be forced to bale the materials again.
Double-Loop Bale Ties – The double loop bale ties need to have a well-designed and well-formed loop. If they don’t, the bale can fall apart. If the wire isn’t of the right gauge and tensile strength, the baler can be damaged and this can lead to expensive repairs.
Black Annealed Baling Wire – This wire is oiled to allow smooth movement through the baler and automatic tier. The oil will also work to prevent rust and wear. If you want to avoid build up within the baler, you need to purchase good quality wire.
Looking for Suppliers -You probably understand the importance of quality by now, so you should focus on suppliers that provide good quality baling wires. There are several companies that sell good quality products; you just need to find the right one for your requirements. Consider the following suggestions:
Search Online – Online companies will have a good inventory of baling wires. You can choose the type of wire, the quality, manufacturer, etc. Online companies will also deliver the product to your facility. You won’t have to worry about transporting your purchase yourself.
Cost vs. Quality – As we mentioned before, people often ignore quality in favor of the cost and that’s understandable. Baling wire is a recurring expense. You need to repurchase it regularly. However, if you purchase a bad quality product, you might harm your baler and that could be more expensive in the long run. Instead of purchasing a low quality wire, look for dealers that offer good deals and discounts.
Local Companies – If you consistently want good baling wire, you should establish a supply relationship with a local company such as BE Equipment or Altitude Recycling
There are many in areas like New York, Florida, Georgia, Vermont, and New Jersey, etc. You can ask your fellow recycling facility owners about reliable local companies in your area.
Before Making the Purchase
Before you buy anything, making sure that the dealer is a legitimate supplier of these products. There are many duplicate wires in the market. You need to ensure that you get legitimate products. You can verify whether the dealer sells genuine products by looking at the manufacturer’s website or calling them.
Once you have all the information you need, all you need to do is place your order. Some companies offer same day delivery or fast delivery, so you can get the baling wires promptly after your order is processed.
