BAG COMPACTOR - Reduce the volume of waste

The bag compactor (also known as a sack compactor) reduces the volume of plastic and paper waste to maintain a healthy, dust-free atmosphere.

Its solid design, in painted steel and 304L stainless steel, is suitable for processes in the food and pharmaceutical industries, and are compatible with paper, burlap, polyethylene, or plastic bags.

Palamatic Process CBU60 bag compactors are designed for perfect integration into a manual bag dump station to contain dust emissions and significantly reduce waste volume. The operator can safely discard the empty bag into the compactor.

The trough screw extrudes the empty package into a polyethylene sheath, held by a tension ring and easily detachable.

Bulk bag compactors are able to compact all types of bags (paper bag, plastic bag, polyethylene bag, etc.) while containing the dust emitted during the compaction operation. The compaction takes place in a completely confined enclosure.

Whether connected directly to the bag dump station or independent, Palamatic Process provides a customized solution in accordance with your needs.

Operation procedure:
Once the bulk material deconditioning operation is completed, the operator throws the empty bag directly into the bulk bag bailer. Start and stop are directly controlled by a dedicated PLC.
