Cost-effective bag compactor

bag compactor

Van Beek, Drunen, the Netherlands, has introduced a new design of bag compactor which allows empty bags to be handled economically, efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner. The empty bags fall down a short chute on to a short screw in a pipe. The screw pushes the bags through the pipe. The pressure of the screw compresses the bags by about two thirds. An endless bag is clamped round the end of the pipe, into which the screw pushes the finely compressed bags.

The endless bag sits in a protective cage. “This is to prevent people putting their hands in the screw”, explained Roel Kneepkens, sales engineer at Van Beek. Once the bag is full, the operator opens the protective cage.
