What machine compacts EPS? There are several machines that compact polystyrene - or rather expanded polystyrene to be specific. Here's a useful explainer.
Polystyrene is a renowned plastic packaging material used for wrapping food items, groceries, seafood, electronic goods/appliances and furniture, just to name a few.
Because it's made from styrene, which is a liquid hydrocarbon, the older forms of polystyrene could not be recycled. The good news is that the newer type of expanded polystyrene (EPS) can be recycled and converted into reusable material.
There are many different forms of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), but for more detailed information on that, we have this detailed guide to compacting polystyrene.
If your business generates considerable amounts of polystyrene waste, it's imperative that you dispose of it correctly.
If you have recyclable material, you will need a compacting machine. There's are special types of compacting machines that eliminates the common issues associated with recycling waste polystyrene, such as density and contamination.
Due to their high volume, products made from EPS tend to fill dumpsters right away, resulting in higher waste disposal costs.
Compacting polystyrene is by far the best way of discarding it. This can be done with the help of a compaction machine such as the Mil-tek EPS2000 Polystyrene Compactor, which can handle small, medium, and large waste volumes.
The polystyrene compactor, which is designed for automatic operation, first shreds then melts the EPS into a dense block via the compression mechanism.
This block can be sold or reprocessed into plastic components for manufacturing electronics, DVD cases, toys, etc. It's also referred to as a polystyrene briquetting machine.
Installation of the EPS compactor will be carried out by a trained Technician who will also help to find the most optimal position to streamline workflow.
The unique performance of the compacting machine will keep the recyclable material safe inside and prevent pollution.
Blocks of expanded polystyrene can be easily collected palletized, and collected.
Using a compaction machine is a space-saving, eco-friendly, and cost-saving option.
Compacting EPS waste into manageable compacted blocks makes it possible to sell them to recycling companies, which will put the discarded material to good use.
The polystyrene compactor provides optimum performance with continuous and fast output. With this kind of equipment, the waste stream is significantly reduced.
