General information about Qinfeng EPS compactor I

Q: What is an EPS compactor?

A: An EPS compactor, also known as an EPS densifier or polystyrene compactor, is a machine specifically designed to reduce the volume of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam waste. It compacts the EPS foam, making it easier to store, transport, and recycle.

Q: How does EPS compactors work?

A: EPS compactors work by applying heat and pressure to the EPS foam. The machine typically consists of a hopper where the EPS waste is fed, a screw conveyor that transports the material to the compression chamber, and a heating element that melts the EPS. The melted EPS is then compressed into dense blocks or logs through a hydraulic ram, reducing its volume significantly.

Q: What are the benefits of using EPS compactors?

A: Reduction in volume: EPS compactors can reduce the volume of EPS foam waste by up to 95%, optimizing storage and transportation efficiency.

Cost savings: By reducing the volume, businesses can save on storage space, transportation costs, and waste disposal fees.

Environmental sustainability: EPS compactors facilitate the recycling of EPS foam, diverting it from landfills and reducing its impact on the environment.

Revenue generation: Compact EPS blocks can be sold to recycling facilities, generating revenue for businesses.

Q: What types of EPS foam can be compacted using EPS compactors?

A: EPS compactors are designed to handle various types of EPS foam, including expanded polystyrene (white foam), extruded polystyrene (blue/pink foam), and other foam packaging materials. It is essential to consult the machine’s specifications or manufacturer guidelines to ensure compatibility.

Q: Can an EPS compactor handle different shapes and sizes of EPS foam waste?

A: Yes, EPS compactors are typically designed to accommodate various shapes and sizes of EPS foam waste, such as loose packaging peanuts, blocks, sheets, and even molded foam. However, it is recommended to sort and pre-process the EPS waste to remove any non-foam contaminants before feeding it into the compactor.

Q: What are the power requirements for EPS compactors?

A: The power requirements for EPS compactors vary depending on the specific machine and its capacity. Typically, EPS compactors operate on electrical power and may require a 3-phase power supply. The exact power specifications can be found in the machine’s documentation or provided by the manufacturer.
