Polystyrene Compactors

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) compactors will turn voluminous dry packaging and fish box into uniform briquettes that are easily handled, stored, and transported. When uncompacted these materials take up significant space in bins and skips and are very light resulting in very high transportation and subsequent waste disposal costs. However, when presented in the correct briquette format these materials are extremely valuable commodities that will generate your business revenue. The financial benefits from landfill diversion and rebates paid from recycling mean a quick payback and ongoing returns on investment for our users.

We offer a full choice of expanded polystyrene presses from small machines right up to large, high-speed, automated presses for major producers and recyclers who need high throughput and automation.

As general guidance, the KBM nano, micro and mini are ideal for smaller producers of EPS where you do not have significant on-going volumes to process every day. The KBM Maxi produces the most dense EPS bricks and has the largest feeding aperture however is still a manual feed machine.

The Strautmann Styropress is a high volume machine for larger producers of polystyrene waste and has a silo for loading significant volumes of EPS allowing the operator to walk away and focus on other tasks whilst the machine clears the storage silo of material.
