Emptying and compacting PC and LDPE drums

Separation and destruction of returned goods or production faults of water drums, paint buckets and other plastic containers are optimized by using RUNI screw compactor.

Large 19-litre water drums, paint buckets and plastic containers are impractical to separate from its content and to transport and dispose of because of the enormous amount of empty space.

RUNI has developed one of the only solutions for compacting and separation of these large buckets and containers with a diameter up to 600mm. 100% destruction ensures that the products are not resold, go to deposit or for own use. The liquid from the containers can be collectred in a tank or go directly into wastewater treatment.

When the containers are compacted, it becomes cost-effective to transport because the transportation space is used optimally and therefore the compacted drums can be sold as recyclable material.

With a screw compactor a continuous compacting process is achieved as opposed to a baling press, where both filling and emptying must be done manually. Containers and buckets can be fed manually or via conveyor belt. RUNI screw compactor is equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop of the machine. When the containers and buckets are compacted by the screw and the hydraulic jaws they are pushed out and can fall into a container.

Both matrix and tray are made of stainless steel (AISI316) to withstand low pH in many liquids.
