Bale compression straps are frequently used: a special design of thread structure strapping, also called hot melt. The lower run length and the usually smaller cardboard core ensure that our compression strapping can be used on all common bale presses. In the case of the bale compression strapping, care must be taken that a certain receptacle is exclusively available for the rollers on bale presses. The maximum outer diameter of the rollers is thus clearly defined. Bale compression straps are therefore slightly smaller than standard rollers. For the most part, strap widths between 9 and 13 mm are used in the area of the bale compression strapping with a run length of 500 m. In the case of smaller vertical presses, bale compression straps are mostly used, while binding wire is required for large horizontal presses.
Bale compression wires are quick-release wires in an uncoated and galvanised design with an extremely high breaking load and low elongation. These wires are placed around the compressed bales with a quick-release fastener and hooked together, thereby self-lashing when the press is opened. A wide range of manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic bale and duct-type presses are used for the compression of valuable materials. LINDER supplies the appropriate wires for this in annealed or galvanised, oiled or non-oiled versions.
