BE Equipment's Baler helps Lycoming County Resource Management

BE Equipment's Baler helps Lycoming County Resource Management ship out neat, stackable trailer loads to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

Lycoming County Resource Management Services, in central Pennsylvania, runs a 60,000-square-foot source-separated MRF that takes in a steady stream of recyclable containers, including aluminum used beverage containers (UBCs). For Wayne Benson, resource recovery assistant manager, and other employees of the agency, a can densifier has historically been the right-sized and affordable option to handle Lycoming County's UBC stream. The winning bid for the county's 2009 request for a new densifier was turned in by BE Equipment, Quakertown, Pa., supplying a BSQ-15002 Densifier manufactured by International Baler, Jacksonville, Fla. "The installation was done in just a few hours," he notes. "We have a staff electrician and he worked with BE and IB and we had things piped in to be almost where they needed to be to connect with the panel. They unloaded it off the truck, anchored it, and we were off and running in a couple of hours."

Lycoming County ordered a custom Densifier that allows the user to adjust the size of the cubes being made. "We wanted to vary the size of the cube to get the weight we wanted and so we could stack them how we wanted to fill up a pallet. We band our cubes together to make a pallet-sized block of around 2,000 pounds." The agency can then load the pallets onto a trailer as if they were loading bales, allowing them to achieve the 42,000-pound weight they seek on trailer loads. After more than two months running the International Baler Densifier, Benson says he has been pleased with the machine and with the people at International Baler and BE Equipment. "We've been impressed with the way machine runs-it does exactly what we need from it," says Benson. "Both International Baler and BE Equipment have been very good about any questions we've had; that goes a long way around here. We would definitely buy another one when the time comes"
