CW 2200 bale wrapper – the best wrapper for refuse derived fuel bale wrapping
CW 2200 Bale Wrapper is the industry-standard bale wrapping solution in the waste-to-energy business. This Cross Wrap bale wrapper offers the lowest operational cost and the waste-to-energy industry’s highest production rate for refuse derived fuel bale wrapping. When looking for a proven and efficient bale wrapping solution, CW 2200 Bale Wrapper is the number one solution.
CW direct bale wrapper – solid recovered fuel bale wrapping with no wires or ties needed
Cross Wrap Direct Bale Wrapper is the perfect choice when using a 2-ram baler and simplifying your solid recovered fuel bale structure. The CW Direct Bale Wrapper wraps small fraction size bales directly from the baling chamber without the need for bale wires or bale ties. This unique wrapping method saves time and money while improving efficiency and upgrading your recycling plant safety. It also helps to keep the production line operating with minimal littering, which ensures a clean and safe production facility.
All the Cross Wrap bale wrappers are fully automatic, save labor costs and improve working safety. Cross Wrap bale wrappers work seamlessly with all baler brands and waste baler machines.
CW Wrappers offer an impressive 80-ton-per-hour capacity while still running cost-efficiently for smaller capacity operations. Both bale wrappers are proven solutions for wrapping even the most demanding materials, such as municipal solid waste (MSW) or waste-based fuels like RDF or SRF.
WHY CHOOSE CROSS WRAP BALE WRAPPERS FOR ALTERNATIVE FUELS?
- Wrapping helps to maintain the calorific value of alternative fuel
- Wrapped bales are more durable in transportation and handling
- Wrapped alternative fuel bales maintain their shape
- Smaller fire hazard during storage
- Square, wrapped bales improve logistics by saving space
WRAPPING IS A MUST-HAVE FOR COST-EFFECTIVE RDF AND SRF WASTE FUEL TRANSPORTATION
Did you know that Cross Wrap’s alternative fuel solutions make the transportation of SRF and RDF bales easier? By baling and wrapping the SRF and RDF waste fuel bales, the material is packed denser and more fuel fits in a shipping container or in the back of a truck. Wrapped bales are more durable in handling and transportation and can be moved long distances to waste-to-energy plants or cement kilns without a risk of breaking, leaking, or littering. As more alternative fuels used in the cement industry, investing in cost-effective transportation is a must.
The innovative features of cross wrap alternative fuel technologies
Both of the Cross Wrap bale wrappers can be run with 500 mm- or 750 mm-wide films, depending on your operation needs. Additional practical features include cleaning conveyors, opening safety fencing, automatic bale weighing, automatic bale labeling, RFID tagging, and remote control. All Cross Wrap bale wrappers have a 3G, LAN, WLAN modem that allows for easy remote troubleshooting and software changes, ensuring that your bale wrapper always performs at its best. Our customer portal and spare part web shop, Cross Wrap Smart, ensures you have a 24/7 access to your current machine operational, manuals, and spare parts.

"What we like the most with our collaboration with Cross Wrap is their reliability”
– Alfredo Vigre, FCC Medio Ambiente, Spain.
Patented bale opener for alternative fuel and cement industry
Cross Wrap’s patented Bale Opener machine is integral part of our alternative fuel solutions. The machine automatically cuts the bale film and bale wires, safely removing them from your alternative fuel bale content.
The machine spools the removed wrapping film and wires into a bundle that is easy to handle and recycle. This unique and automatic machine improves the fraction quality of refuse derived fuel and solid recovered fuel, while making bale handling and opening safer and more efficient.
The CW Bale Opener provides long-lasting reliability and low operating and maintenance costs. Cross Wrap also deliveries CW Wire Cutters for operations where there is only a need for bale wire cutting.
THE BENEFITS OF CROSS WRAP BALE OPENER FOR ALTERNATIVE FUEL TECHNOLOGIES:
- Automate your bale opening with film and tying material removal
- Run your operation flexibly with a system that allows both square and round bale opening
- Become more efficient with fast and reliable bale opening operation
- Keep it simple with an easy-to-use interface and with remote control option
- Just leave it running – You can count on its robust and low maintenance structure
- Save energy – the CW Bale Opener uses less energy than any other method available
- Improve your material fraction by removing the wrap and ties from the bale content
- Choose a wire cutting solution if that is the only operation needed.
High capacity and fast payback for smart alternative fuel solutions
What if you could automatize your material infeed and improve safety and handling, whilst also cutting costs? Our innovative alternative fuel technologies for automatic bale wrapping and bale opening optimizes your alternative fuel manufacturing, usage, and logistical chain.
All Cross Wrap engineered and manufactured alternative fuel bale wrapping and bale opening machines ensure a high 80 tons per hour capacity in processing alternative fuels and waste-based materials. The machines have a fast payback time with long term cost-saving effects. Fully automatic operation minimizes labor costs and tight square bale wrapping ensures most tonnages per m2 in transportation. Our machines are a proven solution in the waste-to-energy sector and when using alternative fuels in the cement manufacturing industry.
“We want to operate with the best possible machinery available such as Cross Wrap,” Simon Little, Powerday, UK.
“By using the CW Bale Opener, our RDF feeding process was simplified, offering more time for general system maintenance and fuel stock management, and optimizing alternative fuel logistics”
– Mr. Hernán Chantiri, InterCement, Argentina.
