Bin Compactors

Rotary bin and bag compactors are popular choices for hospitals (and hotels), particularly in London where space is at a premium. The London Clinic, Princess Grace Hospital, Cromwell Hospital and the Wellington Hospital, to name but a few, all use Bergmann rotary compactors to minimise waste disposal.

The small footprint at 1.75m2 means that high volumes of waste can be compacted in tiny waste rooms.

The PS8100 and 1400E both have a compaction ratio of 9:1. Because the waste is compacted into tough plastic bags, there is no bin-washing to do. The rotating drum crushes the waste against a bag-shield so the bag inside never tears. London waste contractors such as Bywaters and Veolia are all familiar with rotary bag (roto-bale) collection and have the vehicles to carry this out.

The 1100E turns six wheelie bin’s worth of waste into just one using the same rotating spiked drum as the PS8100 and 1400E to tear up waste and compact it into standard wheelie bins.

  • Supplying waste handling equipment & services
    to private companies & public sector organisations

    Bergmann Direct supply a full range of vertical, semi-automatic horizontal waste balers and fully automatic horizontal balers.

    Our waste balers can handle all the standard materials such as cardboard, soft plastics (shrink-wrap, plastic sheeting), PET bottles, hard plastics, aluminium and steel cans even difficult materials such as RDF which require plastic strapping and wrapping to be compliant.

    Bergmann Direct supply a range of vertical balers. for cardboard, plastic and metal cans. Mill-size balers are ideal for low to medium volumes (0.3 – 1 tonne per hour) of cardboard, soft plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans. UK paper mills require ‘mill-size’ bales in order to attract rebates on cardboard. Manually loaded and tied off. Bale pressure up to 50 tonnes. View the Vertical Baler range here.

    Semi - Automatic (Manual Tie) horizontal waste balers.are ideal for larger volumes (1 to 3 tonnes per hour) of cardboard, plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans,  where volume loading is required from a bin lifter, bucket, forklift truck or a conveyor. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. The bales are tied off by hand and the bale is fully-ejected before another bale or another material is started. Bale pressure from 80 to 120 tonnes.

    The fully - automatic (auto-tie) horizontal waste required when volume processing 3 to 16 tonnes per hour. Bales are automatically tied off and pushed out (the bale behind pushes out the bale in front). Feeding is typically by bucket, forklift truck, conveyor or chute. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. Bale pressure from 40 to 120 tonnes.

    RDF is a difficult material which is often made up of small particles of residual waste after the main items have been outsorted. It requires a) high pressure; b) plastic ties and c) bale wrapping. You need a plastic tie facility on your baler which RDF balers.use and you will need a bale wrapper aswell. Feeding is typically by conveyor.
