EPS Compacting – with Harden EPS Compactor

Harden EPS compactor uses innovative technology to compress bulky foam waste EPS  extremely efficiently into easy to manage, stackable blocks – with great volume reduction. The extreme reduction in volume thus achieved (in the ratio of 50:1) does not only produce a considerable saving in transport and disposal costs, but the blocks produced can be also recycled as raw material, therefore contributing to a rapid amortization.

EPS Recycling

One of the great benefits of EPS is that the material can be compacted and following sold for recycling, where it is used for different kind of plastic products like picture frames. In stead of an expense you can generate an income on your Waste.

EPS or Styrofoam is used for a wide number of applications such as e.g. insulation and product protection during transportation. EPS is not biodegradable and when not compressed it often ends in landfill where the light, but expansive material creates significant problems.

How EPS Compactor Working :

You throw EPS scraps into the machine hopper.
The pre-breaker breaks the foam blocks into smaller flake of size 20mm to 50mm.
A screw compactor under the pre-breaker presses the foam into compacted logs.
You stack the logs onto pallets.
The result is 7kg/m³ scrap densified up to 400kg/m³ blocks.CP250 EPS Compactor

Our presses compact your EPS scrap foam packaging blocks, EPS fish boxes, and EPS foam board to absolute minimum, up to 50 to 1 size reduction. With this significant volume reduction, the compacted EPS will takes up much less storage space, and it makes logs that facilitate transport and handling. This means a big cost saving and higher residual value of scraps. This screw compactor can densify the EPS/EPP foam upto 400kg/m³. Although this is less compaction compares to briquette press, the auger compactor is much less expensive and operation cost is less. Compare to the melt extrusion densifier, the auger compactor avoid thermal deterioration and deduction of the material viscosity, it is energy saving, it generates no odor, and it is convenient for off-and-on operation.
