Industrial Compactors Industry Information

Industrial Compactors

Industrial compactors are used in compressing waste materials for the purposes of improved handling, transportation, storage, and recycling. The primary reason for using industrial compactors is to reduce waste management costs by compacting non-recyclable materials for disposal. Compactors are able to reduce the volume of waste materials by up to 75%, which not only reduces transportation and storage costs, but also saves space in landfills.

Applications of Industrial Compactors

Industrial compactors are used by marine, food waste processing, aerospace, medical and industrial manufacturing.

Materials that can be processed by industrial compactors include:

  • Textiles
  • Food Products
  • Drums
  • Rubber Waste
  • Metal Scraps
  • Plastic
  • Fibrous Metals

However, aerosol cans, batteries, flammable, explosive, and poisonous materials should be disposed of in approved ways.

Industrial Compactor Design and Customization

Compactors tend to be smaller units than industrial balers and form more compact bundles of waste material. Styles of compactors include stationary, self-contained, vertical, or horizontal, as well as designs for material-specific or industry-specific applications.

Industrial compactors are composed of three main components: a large metal chamber, an electric motor, and a hydraulically or pneumatically powered press. Compactors can be fitted with extraction capabilities, which are able to remove any liquids or moisture residue in the waste material.

How Industrial Compactors Work

The compactor is loaded manually or automatically through an input area, and the waste material is fed into a chamber, where it is pounded, smashed, and flattened into a compact size. The electric motor powers the press. This is required to exert a great amount of force upon the waste materials. Using a hydraulic system helps to reduce the amount of heat produced by the process and minimizes energy loss.

When the press reaches a set pressure point and the waste material can be no further compressed, the machine reverts to its original position, and the compressed waste can be removed. Commercial compactors, such as trash compactors, usually use bins or bags to store the freshly compressed materials, but industrial compactors typically produce bales of waste material.

Benefits of Using Industrial Compactors

Industrial compactors reduce the bulk volume of waste materials and the money and effort required to dispose of them, which leads to savings over time. Compactors also play an important role in helping manufacturers to be environmentally responsible in terms of waste management and disposal and in reducing the carbon footprint of industrial activity. They reduce the frequency of waste removal, minimize the potential for overflowing waste and contaminants, provide more hygienic environments, and improve facility maintenance.
