The Best Commercial Food Compactor

When it comes to compacting food, the types of clients usually looking to buy are those overwhelmed by the amount of waste on their premises. This can extend from coffee shops to restaurants and beyond to festivals where food is thrown away in droves. You may need a compactor that can deal with a high quantity of food and wet waste all whilst eliminating odours that can often permeate from these environments.

So which compactor is up to the task? In truth, there are a couple to choose from. For example: the Model APK skip from Ludden & Mennekes, capable of holding 4-5 tonnes of waste and designed with a rounded bottom to avoid liquids sitting stagnant. Its fully sealed and heavy-duty rear discharge door ensure no unpleasant odours escape and that no accidents occur in the process of operation or if unauthorised persons attempted to use it. With its various loading hopper designs, the APK is able to be fed by hand as well as by bin lift and tip skip.
The APK’s robust and tight build mean no cleaning is required at any point in the process. All food waste is fully and discreetly contained.

Ludden & Mennekes’ RPK roro compactor is also adept at containing food waste. This compactor also boasts a rounded bottom and is suitable for food waste, wet waste, and offensive waste. With its fast cycle time of just 35 seconds and a high 37 tonne compaction force, the RPK requires surprisingly little upkeep owing to the elimination of the need to have built-up waste cleaned from behind its pendulum ram or the inspection hatch area. Where the RPK differs from the APK is the size. Where the APK holds up to 5 tonnes of food waste, the RPK goes above and beyond, typically holding 8-12 tonnes, which could be advantageous if you happen to have enough waste to fill it.
