GREENMAX PE foam compactor is different from the traditional foam cold compactor. It adopts the advanced surface melting technology, which makes the foam blocks denser.

The principle of the equipment is relatively simple. the PE foam waste can be crushed into small pieces by the crushing knives, then these pieces will be transported to the screw extrusion, compressed foam pass on the surface of hot melt process, forming a hot melt film in the surface layer of compression block, which can prevent it from loosening again, GREENMAX ZEUS series PE foam compactor is specialized designed for polyethylene foam recycling.
