SVS “Electric Drive” static screw compactor

The eco-future of waste disposal - 100% electric.

The Ludden & Menneke’s SVS static screw compactor offers high performance compaction on a wide range of waste types including difficult materials such as pallets and crates.

With its electric drive it uses no hydraulics so is very quiet running, has zero risks of oil leaks and significantly reduced running costs as well as service and maintenance requirements.

The SVS can be continuously loaded due to its screw compaction system, making it ideal for sites requiring fast, efficient waste removal.

Ludden & Mennekes’ SVS range of static screw compactors are high quality German built machines.

These machines are particularly effective at crushing and compacting heavy-duty cardboard articles and are even suitable for bales, paper, plastics, one-way pallets, crates and wood, returned goods, dough, foods and other hard-to-handle waste materials. Additionally, they are suitable where a measure of product destruction is required.

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

The SVS comes with a choice of motor rating, pre-full and full warnings, auto-reverse when full, and a direct drive geared motor. 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.

Feeding can be by hand, bulk tipping, hydraulic tipper, chute or conveyor, and a range of force-feed devices are available to assist with loading difficult materials.

Our competitive pricing enables our clients to invest in world class German manufactured machinery that is built to last a lifetime.
