The air powered Mil-tek A101 Can Crusher is the ideal solution for compressing cans and metal food containers. The Can Crusher is air-powered meaning that not only is it quiet, there is also no risk of oil contamination.


Many tins and cans contain hazardous waste such as oil or paint, the removal of which can be very expensive. The Mil-tek A101 Can Crusher will reduce the volume of cans and tins by up to 90%, allowing you to reduce the number of hazardous waste bins, and the number of lifts required and, most importantly, reduce your costs by up to 80%.

Containing no electrical parts, the small-size, heavy-duty Mil-tek A101 Can Crusher is both easy to maintain and easy to clean.

It can compress metal, steel, tin, aluminium – almost any form of non-aerosol can up to 30L in size. The Mil-tek A101 Can Crusher is powered by compressed air, either directly from an existing air line or from a compressor supplied by Mil-tek.

This means that the Can Crusher is free of both electrical and hydraulic components, minimizing the risk of fire and completely eliminating the risk of oil contamination.
