Separation and Compacting of Tinned Food

Separating and Compacting Tinned Food

Destruction of, for example: returned goods and faulty manufactures from the food industry can often cause a storage problem. But by installing a RUNI screw compactor, it is possible to save both space and handling, by separating and compacting the tinned food immediately where the needs emerge. Furthermore, the compacted cans can be sold for recycling. 100% destruction ensures that the product does not re-enter the market. 

Screw Compactor Solution for Tinned Food

The RUNI screw compactor compacts and separates the cans continuously; the liquid or partly liquid content is then pressed out without making the surroundings dirty. The liquid can be diverted into a tank and sold to energy production or to animal feed, and the aluminium packaging is pushed out and collected in a container. The machines are equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop function. Feeding of the screw compactor can be done via conveyor belt or manually. It is necessary that the content is liquid or partly liquid. Both matrix and collection tray is made of stainless steel (AISI316) to withstand the low pH many fluids have.

Size and Capacity of Screw Compactor

The SK370 model for dewatering and separating tinned food has a capacity of approx. 20,000 pcs 0,33 l cans per hour. The maximal diameter of the cans is 230 mm, corresponding to a 10 litres bucket. After compaction the aluminium cans achieve a density of approx. 400kg/m3
