CORRUGATOR SYSTEM INSTALLATIONS
WITH THE BEST OPTIONS FOR AN OPEN END CARDBOARD BALER
A NEW CORRUGATOR SYSTEM INSTALLATION BY AIR SYSTEMS DESIGN FEATURES UNDERGROUND SLIDER BED CONVEYORS WITH A BALEMASTER OPEN-END BALER.
THE OWNERS OF THIS SYSTEM HAD AIR SYSTEMS DESIGN, INC., DESIGN A CORRUGATOR SYSTEM WITH PLENTY OF ROOM TO GROW.
While they did not yet require 8000 pounds per hour capacity, they had the foresight to create a system that will handle their anticipated capacity.
THIS CORRUGATOR SYSTEM INSTALLATION FEATURES UNDERGROUND SLIDER BED CONVEYORS THAT ARE USED IN A STRAIGHT LINE PIT OR TRENCH.
An incline conveyor brings the material up and out into the open end baler. Designing the conveyor system this way yields a lot of savings, not just in the horsepower used. If air was used in this type of conveying systems, a filter system would also need to be used which would result in higher maintenance and capital cost.
IF THE SAME INSTALLATION USES A 270 HP VERSUS THE 30 HORSEPOWER WE EMPLOYED, THE CORRUGATOR SYSTEM WOULD NEED TO BLOW AIR INTO A CYCLONE AND REQUIRE A FILTER WITH THE AIR COMING BACK INTO THE PLANT.
The approximate cost to process this, including replacement filters and compressed air, is very expensive and could be $50,000 a year.
THE BALER EMPLOYED WAS A BALEMASTER OPEN-END BALER WITH AN AUTO TIER.
This particular baler has an 8 inch cylinder and 30 horsepower. A cylinder of 6 or 7 inches would have made loose bales. We used a 40 inch feed chute which is larger and well suited for this installation.
