SC1200 Small Compactor for Dry / Wet Polystyrene

Polystyrene is commonly used as packaging material for many industries, such as fish processing and appliance manufacturers. If such packaging isn’t compacted it is extremely light but voluminous, this results in high transportation costs.

Polystyrene compactors break down EPS blocks of all shapes and sizes and refines them into solid blocks, often referred to as briquettes which can be sold for a rebate.

The SC1200 is the smallest EPS compactor in our range with throughput of up to 35kg/ per hour. The SC1200 is not only robust, it’s a low maintenance machine with an ability to reach high compaction ratios. Due to its capable versatility, the SC1200 reaches such compaction with both wet and dry polystyrene.

This polystyrene compactor is straightforward to use providing a much simpler and effective way in dealing with company waste. The operation of this compactor allows for continuous loading.

Should you require something larger take a look at the SC2100 and SC3100.  Throughputs for these models increases to 50kg – 200kg per hour.

Can I receive a rebate for the compacted blocks?
Yes, we work with national recyclers that we can put you in touch with.
Can I put polystyrene into general waste?
You can, although not only is it expensive to transport due to its bulky nature, it's also really damaging for the environment. You are also missing out on potential rebates from the compacted material.
