Bale anything with Orkel

The Orkel compactors are able to bale a wide variety of bulk materials like waste products, animal feed and much more. Take a look at some of the materials below, and do not hesitate to contact us to discuss if your material is baleable!

Other materials

  • Sugar beet pulp

    Sugar beet pulp

    Sugar beet pulp is a byproduct after the sugar extraction process. It is a valuable animal feed due to its high fibre content, and moderate amounts of protein, energy and minerals.

    Bales of sugar beet pulp are easy to transport from where it is produced to where it can be used, and the exclusion of oxygen keeps the feed fresh for up to two years.

  • TMR (total mixed ration)

    TMR (total mixed ration)

    TMR is a method of feeding dairy cattle where all the required ingredients, including roughage (fiber) and concentrates (grains, protein sources, and minerals), are mixed together thoroughly before being fed to animals.

    If a farmer buys a TMR mix in bales, it can be fed directly to the animals. As a result, the farmer saves time while feeding.

  • Agricultural plastic

    Agricultural plastic

    Agricultural plastic, recycled plastic from round bales, has been baled with the Orkel compactors for many years.

    Our industrial models are especially designed to handle rough, dirty and slippery materials.

    Agricultural plastic bales are often transported by truck or ship, and compacted material allows you to fit 25% more on each shipment compared to transporting loose material.

  • Bana grass

    Bana grass

    Bana grass is a hybrid between Babala and Napier grass, hence the name ba-na. The grass is fast-growing and was developed in South Africa as food for livestock.

    It is also a great energy crop due to its extensive growth, with the possibility to harvest every 6-8 weeks.

    Baling bana grass enables cost-efficient transport and long-time storage.
