How Does GREENMAX Styrofoam Compactor Improve The Environment Well To Handle Ubiquitous Foam Wastes

 

Styrofoam is a type of polystyrene foam. It is also known as extruded polystyrene and has a great insulating properties. As we know that Styrofoam is made from petroleum, it is commonly used around the world for food items such as drinking cups and ‘to-go’ food containers and PSP lunch boxes, while it is also widely used as the most popular packaging products in various industries, especially in foam manufacturing and logistics industries.

 


It seems that we can’t live without facing foam packaging products, therefore it is quite important to do Styrofoam recycling efficiently. Considering the characteristics of Styrofoam as extremely lightweight and voluminous size, it is crucial to take the use of GREENMAX Styrofoam compactor.

 


Styrofoam compactors are based on the principle of compressing EPS foam into blocks using a helical compression mechanism. In use, the operator simply throws the foam block into the hopper, and the machine has a breaking mechanism to break the foam block, and then the screw mechanism extrudes the small piece of EPS foam into a compressed block that is having a square cross section. GREENMAX polystyrene compactor adopts the principle of cold pressing technology, and the compression process does not require special heating, thus totally free of pollution.

 


There is a pressure regulating device at the front end of the compression section to adjust the compression ratio. According to the characteristics of raw materials, the compression ratio can reach 30~40 times.

 


It can be seen that the EPS foam compactor can effectively reduce the foam volume and reduce the storage space and transportation cost. The introduction of German technology, made in China, the use of reliable quality brands, cost-effective, can quickly recover costs, due to low noise, can effectively improve the working environment.

 

In all, those densified EPS blocks can be sold to GREENMAX recycling at a high price for reusing to make new products to avoid being landfilled and pollute the air, water and soil.
