The Mil-tek EPS1000 Polystyrene Compactor is the ideal solution for compacting EPS6, the most commonly used form of EPS / Polystyrene / Styrofoam.
Installation is carried out by a Mil-tek technician. Your EPS Compactor will be installed in the most optimal position to facilitate workflow.
Place EPS6 packaging into the compactor. Once the door is closed, a rotating shredder shreds the packaging.
The shredded EPS is then pushed down into a screw conveyor, which presses and moulds the material into a compressed briquette form.
Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is inert and does not de-compose; once it enters a landfill it will stay there forever. By compacting and recycling Polystyrene, you can reduce your existing waste costs by up to 80%, by avoiding unnecessary transport costs and reducing bins / skips and lifts required.
The Mil-tek EPS1000 shreds the polystyrene into fine grains. These are then melted to remove the air and significantly reduce the size. The EPS is then compacted in dense, manageable briquettes.
Yes you can. Dense, compacted polystyrene can be recycled into almost any plastic based product: mobile phones, speakers, televisions, toys etc. It is much cheaper than manufacturing 'new' plastic, making it a popular commodity.
Ask someone who knows: Mil-tek assist companies all of the world in doing exactly this, and your consultant will ensure you find a local recycler willing to take this off your hands.
