For total dust control, bag compactors are fitted to bag dumps so an operator can safely dispose of waste packaging material without having to withdraw it from the dust controlled environment.
After the operator has cut and emptied the bag it is placed over the internal weir and into the bag compactor. Fresco manufactures two types of bag compactors depending on the packaging material and the disposal method.
The feeders screw type extrudes the packaging into a plastic liner whereas the compaction type compacts the packaging into bails for disposal.
Whenever handling bags or sacks of powder products in to the manufacturing process the disposal of waste is always a major cost issue for manufactures.
Fresco Systems has a range of bag compactors that reduce the volume of waste plastic, paper and cardboard waste by 85-90%.
Whether connected directly to the bag dump tipping station or free standing Fresco Systems provides a solution tailored to your needs. Multiple sized units capable of compacting bale weights up to 300kg for cardboard and 400kg for plastic in either mild steel or stainless steel construction. Fully pneumatic operation and safety interlocks allows for the bag compactor to be positioned in a hazardous dust environment as standard. Depending on the which model is selected for the application, single or twin cylinders apply pressure of up to 8,500kg @ 8bar to the waste packaging. Once the bale is completed the bandit strapping already mounted to the bag compactor secures the bale ready for release and disposal. Significant costs savings are generated through reduction in internal waste handling, reduction in housekeeping issues and disposal volume.
