PET-Bottles 

PET bottles are the preferred packaging for soft drinks, fizzy drinks, juice, and water. However, the wide distribution of these PET bottles causes a huge waste problem. Breweries often have large quantities of discharged products that they need to destroy to eliminate the risk of reselling these products. On the other hand, waste collectors need help with handling and transporting high volumes of these discharged products, as it usually requires more effort and money to do so. This makes buying a plastic bottle compactor advisable because it is more profitable and environmentally friendly.

Sell Compacted PET Bottles for Recycling

Our plastic compactor machine is a great solution to reduce the volume of PET bottles and hence the transportation costs. Once the bottles pass through our RUNI plastic bottle compactor, it becomes impossible to resell it or to get a deposit on the bottles. In many cases, the compacted bottles are sold for recycling. Furthermore, the plastic compactor machine reduces the volume of the PET bottles by a ratio of 8:1. Making the handling and transportation of PET easier and less expensive. The compacted PET bottles can be sold to material recovery facilities specializing in sorting and shredding waste materials. Afterward, it can be sold to recycling companies where further sorting, cleaning, and shredding are done before getting PET-flakes raw material for making new plastic products.

RUNI screw compactors compact and dewater PET bottles in a continuous process, pressing liquid extracts into a tank or the sewage without making the surroundings dirty. To avoid bridging and ensure a steady flow when using RUNI screw compactors, you can install an agitator in the hopper. The machines are equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop and can be fed manually, via a conveyor belt or with tilt container. The compacted PET bottles can be pushed directly into a container.
