Compact Insulation

When disposal of insulation is necessary, a RUNI SK370 screw compactor can be used. The insulation compactor pre-crushes and compacts all forms of mineral wool (stone wool, glass wool, etc.) when introduced into the hopper of the machine. The machine pre-crushes and compacts the mineral wool into something similar to heavy sand, compacted directly into big bags. A full big bag weighs around 600-700 kg//m3

After compacting the mineral wool, it can be reused by casting it into concrete blocks, which can be useful for different companies. This way, we ensure the resuse of the mineral wool, so it doesn't just go to landfill, which is also a very costly solution. 

RUNI Solution for Recycling Insulation

When the mineral wool is fed into the pre-crusher, it will be shredded. Afterward, the screw and the hydraulic jaws will automatically ensure that the material will be compacted into a material that feels like heavy sand and finally compacted into big bags.

The machine can be configured with a 45º hopper or be fed with a conveyor belt into the vertical hopper. The different integrated sensors ensure easy handling with automatic start- and stop functions, and the speed can be adjusted. We have also designed a solution integrated into a container, with feeding from outside. The compactor works continuously with the material, and the full big bags can be taken out of the end of the container.

Benefits:

  • Reduce the cost of warehouse, transport, and disposal
  • Reduce manual labor
  • Safe and easy operation with automatic start and stop

Options: 

  • Design of solution in containers for companies or recycling stations
  • Specially designed for demolition companies (connected to vacum-suction)
  • Remote control for quick troubleshooting and assistance from factory

 

The RUNI SK370 Function of Dewatering Wet Insulation:

RUNI has also delivered screw compactors for the dewatering of wet mineral wool, which could origin from:
- Nurseries. The nurseries' grow bags are full of water after use - here, the weight can be reduced by half or more.
- Filter material. Some industries use mineral wool as filter material. Used filters can be compacted and dewatered in a RUNI screw compactor for mineral wool and used for great benefits.
