Ludden & Mennekes’ SVS range of static screw compactors are high quality German built machines that are particularly effective at crushing and compacting heavy-duty cardboard articles and even bales, paper, plastics, one-way pallets, crates and wood, returned goods, dough, foods and other hard to handle waste materials and where a measure of product destruction is required.

The SVS models offer static compactor high performance, small dimensions and low maintenance. They compact into closed “roll-on-off” compactor containers that are exchanged when full leaving the compactor operational at all times.

With its freely programmable PLC and central greasing system the machine is ideally suited to continuous operation. As standard the machines have continuously welded seams (which prevent corrosion) and are CE and GS approved.
