Wasting less means saving more. Nowhere does this ring more true than in the tyre processing domain, where upfront investments in advanced baling equipment swiftly multiply dividends across logistics, storage density and even sustainability indexes.

Introducing the latest 12-tyre capacity truck balers – optimised revelations unlocking new efficiency frontiers and commercial advantages.

Building Upon A Legacy of Proven Density Maximisations

Industrial-grade truck tyre balers have long set the gold standard for volume reduction capabilities outpacing conventional baling presses. Compaction ratios exceeding 5:1 even on robust rubber and steel-belted compounds enable facilities to reclaim floor space for revenue-generating operations rather than warehousing increasing tyre stockpile volumes.

By orienting multiple tyres vertically and leveraging immense hydraulic-powered compression strength, these machines crush air pockets and interlock tyre carcasses into dense, stable blocks rather than loose aggregate. This allows safely stacking significantly more tyre units per square meter. The denser consolidation also loads far more product weight into transport trailer cubic space, reducing trips to transfer fixed monthly tonnages.

Pushing Maximum Density Frontiers with 12-tyre Chamber Capabilities

Yet ambitious pioneers never cease in pushing boundaries. Recognising market demand for even greater bale density capabilities, particularly among high-volume tyre haulers and recycling operations, engineers recently unveiled a dramatic truck baler upgrade.

Rigorously tested structural reinforcements to containing chambers and door assemblies now allow safely compacting up to 12 vertically aligned truck tyres in a single bale compression cycle.

This breakthrough build upon proven base models sacrifices none of the original power or ruggedness while smartly expanding batches. Automated controls seamlessly execute the optimised sequences, compressing the initial 12-tyre cluster under immense pressures before a temporary retention system engages stabilising the part-formed bale.

This frees the powered compression slab to lift fully clear of the chamber housing, enabling workers to efficiently load another dozen tyres onto the base layer. Component stress analysis ensures a full 24-tyre stack gets uniformly compacted into an ultra-dense, stable bale ready for storage and transport.

Quantifying The Commercial Advantages

Transitioning to these upgraded next-gen compaction systems pays immediate dividends through:

42% increase in per-bale tyre density compared to standard 16-tyre balers

3X more baled tyres stored in existing warehouse square footage

20% larger bale sizes meaning more tonnage fill per transport truck

Faster amortisation of equipment costs through input/output gains

Lowered transport emissions per processed tyre ton eliminating truck runs

Optimised Designs Facilitating Retrofitting Benefits to Existing Equipment

But what of facilities currently relying upon legacy balers lacking the structural capacity for 50% more tyre input batches? Engineers conceived ingenious bolt-on modifications customisable to multiple common baler chassis strengthening door assemblies, housing frames and hydraulic cylinders to identical rigor as the new 12-tyre spec builds. This allows owners to cost-effectively upgrade existing asset capabilities rather than full replacements to meet growing demand. Demonstration retrofits confirm seamless integration protecting OEM power and safety expected while multiplying productivity and sustainability gains. Qualified operators handle full installations.

In Closing: Volume Innovation Driving The Next Leap in Returns

With exponential tyre waste volumes projected in coming years, maximising process unit efficiencies through improved economies of scale makes sound commercial sense both operationally and environmentally.

These latest balers set new density performance benchmarks, paying back capital costs quicker than ever through logistics and labor savings. Now, even current baler owners can extend equipment lifespans while expanding profitability through customisable retrofits.

Once again, technology and engineering prowess push boundaries enabling enterprises to get far more output and cost savings from far less inventory space. The future of efficient, high-density compaction achieves new commercial advantage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Gradeall’s Truck Tyre Balers

A: Up to 42% higher density bales are possible, condensing more tyre tonnage into less physical storage and transport space.

Q: How does the temporary tyre retention system work during the two-stage compression?

A: Specialised internal components securely hold the initial 12-tyre stack after first compaction so the powered slab can lift fully to receive a second dozen tyres before final max pressure finish compression into dense bale block.

Q: Can existing balers be upgraded somehow to handle 12-tyre batches?

A: Yes, consultants provide fully customisable structural modification kits tailored to reinforce vital components of popular current baler models in the field enabling them to safely achieve 50% more input capacity and output densities.
