Are you looking for a more efficient, cheaper and environmentally friendly option than a hydraulic press or baler? Then choose a Van Beek bag compactor. Our compactors are available in stainless steel 304, stainless steel 316 and a steel coated version. An ATEX version is also available.
The bag compactor compresses plastic bags, jute bags, cardboard bags and any combinations of these. This reduces their volume by 60 to 80 percent.
Our bag compactors with chute enable you feed the bags in a continuous process.
The bags fall via a chute or the filling cabinet, onto a short screw in a tube. The screw pushes the bags through the tube, and the pressure of the screw compresses the bags. The screw then pushes the compressed bags into an endless bag (tubular film) that is clamped by a clamping ring around the end of the outlet.
The endless bag is placed in a protective cage. When the protective cage is opened, the screw stops so the operator can safely cut and remove the endless tubular film. The operator can then place a new section of tubular film over the outlet, and as soon as the operator closes the cage the process can begin again.
Van Beek can provide a control box on the machine with the necessary control circuit, however, the customer may want to control everything from a central control system. The safety switch in the motor’s control circuit is designed to stop the screw when the protective cage is opened.
