  • Bergmann 1400E Rotary Bag Compactor

    The Bergmann 1400E is an updated electrical version of the PS8100 hydraulic bag compactor. It has a small 1.7m by 1.2m footprint and will give a 10:1 compaction rate, achieving an 80% plus reduction in collections.


    Bergmann 1400-E Rotary Bag Compactor
    Bergmann 1400-E Rotary Bag Compactor: 10:1 compaction ratio in a 1250L tough bag. Ideal alternative to a baler, or for use with general waste and post-consumer plastic and packaging waste.

    It is ideal for sites with:

    • Small area for waste management (like hotels and shops)
    • No room for multiple bins (city centre areas for example)
    • General waste or dry recyclables with some contamination from food waste: the bag contains all the liquid
    • Production lines and factories where waste needs to be compacted at the point it is generated: loading by hand, conveyor or chute is typical
    • Apartment blocks where waste is disposed via chutes: the 1400E can be loaded from a vertical chute
    • As an alternative to a baler, particularly for plastics and shrinkwrap

    How The Bergmann 1400E Works

    A new bag is placed in the machine with a pallet on the floor and the doors closed; waste is loaded through the chute door (or via a chute from above for example); the rotary drum breaks up and compacts the waste into the bag; the bag is protected by a metal bag shield; the full bag, typically between 350kg and 500kg in weight; the full bag is pulled out on a pallet truck and the bag sealed. The bag can be fork-lifted into a 35 yard container (typical in factories) or collected where waste vehicles have bag and forklift attachments, or picked up with a bale grab.
