Styropactor Micro

KBM's small size Styropactor, suited to low to medium producers of waste EPS.

Key features

  • Built in Denmark by Europe’s leading manufacturer of EPS recycling machinery
  • Spares and support readily available
  • Choice of 2 motor sizes
  • Fully galvanised and can be used in or outdoors
  • Mobile on castors
  • Has integral shredding fingers and a patented screw/comb design that reduces the risk of blockages and melt downs

The KBM Micro Styropactor is a high performance, low to medium throughput briquetting press with a choice of 2 models that compact between 15-20kg of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) per hour into blocks weighing 175-350kg/m3. This equates to up to 30 fish boxes per hour.

With its small footprint, it is ideal for low to medium volume producers with limited floor space. This machine is suited for small retailers, fish shops and other businesses with limited space and waste.

It is fully galvanised and fitted with robust, locking wheels so it can be moved around easily when required.

The machine is simple to use and can, dependent on model choice, handle both wet and dry EPS.

The feed opening (400 x 500mm) handles small to medium sizes of material and the vertical feed means any length may be loaded. An optional interlocked lid allows users to fill the hopper, close the lid and leave the machine to run safely, and automatically shut down after a pre-set time period.

All KBM machines feature a unique integrated pre-crush system.

Inside the feed chamber, the auger screw is fitted with cutting knives that shred the EPS as it is compacted. This system increases throughput and reduces jamming, melting and breakdowns. The auger screw is also fitted with patented double flight system that ensures it spins straight, even when under full load.

This design reduces wear, avoids the need for additional bearings and supports on the auger, and significantly increases the lifespan of the motor and gearbox.
