Compacting Drums Leads to LDPE Plastic Recycling

Large 19-litre water drums of polycarbonate used for mineral water coolers, and similar containers made of polycarbonate or LDPE, are impractical to transport and dispose of, due to their size and the enormous amount of empty space they require.

RUNI has developed one of the only solutions for compacting these large buckets and containers with a diameter up to 600mm. When they are compacted, it becomes cost-effective to transport because the transportation space is used optimally and therefore the compacted drums can be sold as LDPE plastic recycling 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.

RUNI screw compactor can be equipped with a matrix meaning that containers with liquid can be separated from the content. The liquid is collected in a tray and led into a tank.
