Styropactor Nano

KBM's smallest size Styropactor, suited to low level producers of waste EPS.

Key Features

  • Built in Denmark by Europe’s leading manufacturer of EPS recycling machinery
  • Spares and support readily available
  • Fully galvanised and can be used indoors or out, on wet or dry material
  • Mobile on castors
  • Has integral shredding fingers and a patented screw/comb design that reduces the risk of blockages and meltdowns

The KBM Styropactor Nano is a high performance, low throughput briquetting press that compacts between 10-15kg of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) per hour into blocks weighing 140-225kg/m3. This equates to up to 15 fish boxes per hour.

With its tiny footprint, it is ideal for sites low volume producers with very 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 is suitable for both dry and wet materials.

The feed opening (300 x 490mm) handles small 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 shutdown 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 a patented double flight system that ensures it spins straight, even when under full load.

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