Styrfoam Compression

Efficient Styrfoam Compression – Polystyrene Recycling Machine

A few years ago, Supermercati Tosano, an italian family-owned company founded in 1990, had to finda solution to manage the growing quantities of expanded polystyrene waste generated in the fishdepartments of its 19 supermarket branches.

To address this issue, the supermarket chain decided to install a Siedon SP200 compactorin each of its branches. These compactors allow for a drastic reduction in the volume of styrofoamboxes, The styrofoam boxes are manually loaded into the Siedon, where they are crushed andcompacted into solid blocks. These blocks can be easily palletized and stored. The compactedstyrofoam serves as a high-quality secondary raw material that can be reused in various processesthus enabling complete recycling.

The Siedon screw compactors achieve a 50:1 volume reduction of the fish boxes, and the blocks havea density of up to 350 kg per cubic meter. This volume reduction enables the supermarket chain tosignificantly reduce its costs for EPs storage and disposal. And its inside channel is made of 304 stainless steel, which can prevent rust.

By investing in the Siedon compactors, Supermercati Tosano was able to not only greatly reducestorage and disposal costs but also reduce its ecological footprint.
