Dewatering and compacting PET bottles in a single process

With the RUNI screw compactor you can compact and dewater PET bottles continuously and hygienically. You will save money on handling and transport, as the volume reduction of the bottles are 8:1

PET bottles "polyethylene terephthalate" is the preferred packaging for soft drinks, fizzy drinks, juice and water. This results in large waste problems. For breweries, large volumes of discharged products need to be destroyed regularly in order to elimiate the risks of the bottles being resold again. For waste collectors handling and transport is difficult and expensive, as there is a large discrepancy between weight and volume.

Dewatering and compacting with our RUNI screw compactor can be the solution.

PET bottle recycling

Dewatering with the RUNI screw compactor is a great solution to both these problems. When the bottles have been through the RUNI screw compactor it is no longer possible to get deposit on the bottles. In many cases the compacted bottles can be sold for recycling.

RUNI screw compactor compacts and separates continuously the bottles while the liquid is pressed out into a tank or the sewage without making the surroundings dirty. To avoid bridging an agitator can be installed in the hopper. The machines are equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop and can be fed manually, via conveyor belt or tilt container. The compacted bottles are pushed directly into a container.
