Separation and compacting paint buckets

Paint and paint remainders can be separated from the buckets with RUNI screw compactor in one working process.

Destruction of returned goods and faulty manufacture from paint manufacturers often result in a  storage problem. For recycling centres it can be a problem to empty and compact halfempty paintbuckets. By installation of RUNI screw compactor space and handling can be saved through separation and compacting the buckets right away. The compacted buckets can be sold for recycling. The content of the buckets can be send to incineration. 100% product destruction ensures that the products are not resold. The normal maximal diameter of the cans are 230 mm corresponding to a 10 litre bucket.

RUNI screw compactor compacts and separates the buckets continuously while the content is being pressed out into a tank. The machine is equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop. Material can be added with conveyor belt and manually. Both matrix and collection tray are made of stainless steel (AISI316) to resist low pH in many liquids

The screw rotates very slowly to prevent sparkles/ danger of explosion.

For compacting and separation of large metal bucket or drums with a diameter up to 600mm RUNI have developed an SK370.
