What is the difference between a Channel and a Twin Ram baler?

What is a channel baler?

Channel balers, also known as fully automatic horizontal baling presses, are one of Whitham Mills’ most popular balers that we sell across Europe. Robust and reliable, they are suited to 24hr operation and have throughputs of up to 50tph. Ideal for baling material such as paper and cardboard, the channel baler produces high-density bales with reduced labour cost. They work by producing a continuous line of dense and stackable bales for the lowest cost logistics.

What is a twin ram baler?

Twin ram balers, also known as a dual ram or two ram baler, are one of the best types of waste management machinery for a business who is required to bale a range of materials. Whether that’s cardboard, hard plastics, RFD or LDPE film, twin ram balers produce impressively high bale densities and weight.

What’s the difference?

Application

Twin Ram balers produce heavier bale weights on average and can process a wider amount of materials compared to a channel baler. Channel balers are best used for a single material stream such as cardboard in a distribution centre.

Density vs throughput

You can achieve a greater bale density by baling your material in a twin ram however you can get a slightly higher throughput on a channel baler. If you are struggling to decide which type of machine is suited to your processing needs speak to a member of our team today 01706 811 880.

Cost

Twin rams are generally more expensive as an overall purchase due to their higher capabilities and material processing ability.

Set up

You get greater flexibility with strapping on a twin ram as a pose to a channel baler which generally can only use steel wire, plastic wire or twine. Twin rams can be tied of by all the aforementioned as well as strap. Furthermore, Twin Ram machines can be programmed to use more or less strapping depending on material requirements meaning lower overall costs.
