Separate and Compact Paint Buckets

Destruction of returned goods and faulty products from paint manufacturers often leads to storage challenges. Many recycling centers struggle to compact and empty half-filled paint buckets, but our screw compactor simplifies the process. By installing a RUNI screw compactor, you can save space and enhance material handling by immediately separating and compacting the buckets. The compacted buckets can then be sold for recycling, while the bucket contents can be sent for incineration. Complete product destruction ensures that the products are not resold.

The standard RUNI SK370 screw compactor accommodates cans with a maximum diameter of 230 mm, equivalent to a 10-liter bucket. For compaction and separation of large metal buckets or drums with a diameter of up to 600 mm, RUNI has developed a special SK370.

The Screw Compactor Solution for Paint Buckets

RUNI screw compactor SK370 compacts and separates the buckets continuously, and while the content is being pressed out into a tank, the containers are compacted and gathered so that they can be sold for recycling. The machine is equipped with sensors for automatic start and stop. The paint buckets can be fed into the screw compactor with a conveyor belt and/or manually. Both matrix and collection tray are made of stainless steel (AISI316) to resist low pH in many of these liquids.

The screw rotates very slowly to prevent sparkles/ danger of explosion. 

Capacity and Achieved Density After the Screw Compactor

The SK370 model has a capacity of 3,500 buckets of 3L or 1,000 paint buckets of 10L.  

The compacted paint buckets made of plastic normally achieve compaction of up to 300 kg/m3, and the metallic paint buckets normally achieve a density of 1500 kg/m3
