Bergmann Traversing Roll Packer

The Bergmann Traversing Roll Packer from Bergmann Direct is the most cost-effective waste compactor for narrow household waste recycling centres, and any location with multiple open containers.

Traversing Roll Packer


The Bergmann Traversing Roll Packer works on a rail behind multiple containers so you only need one roll packer for all your containers.

Bulk Waste Compactor

The Traversing Roll Packer is designed to compact bulky waste in several open containers in a row. It is mounted on tracks which bolt into the concrete so there are no civils required. The specially equipped compaction drum breaks up and tears the waste to make maximum use of all the space in the containers so you are not paying to transport air.

The compaction time can be varied with the simple turn of a screw. You can operate the traversing system from a remote control unit or from a cab. Containers from 30 to 50 cubic yards sit in a row: the roll packer moves from one container to another on a rail behind the containers.

Traversing Roll Packer - Operator's Cab


With the Bergmann Traversing Roll Packer, the operator's cab gives a clear view into the container.

Traversing Roll Packer Key Benefits

  • 4:1 waste compaction rate depending on waste type and how the Roll Packer is used (regular rolling as the waste accumulated generates much higher tonnages per container)
  • Immediate reduction in transport costs from delivery
  • Only one compactor needed for several container places
  • No civils are needed (so long as you have flat concrete) as the track is bolted to the concrete:meaning that it could be moved to another site later if required
  • Allows containers to be placed near a perimeter fence, saving space
  • Unlimited container bays and variable distance between bayspossible
  • Limit controls (variable settings) stop the roller from touching the side of the container avoiding container damage
  • Quiet operation
  • Operates in containers up to 50 cubic yards
  • Typical tonnages in containers: 10 tonnes

Highly Effective on the following materials

  • wood
  • general
  • hard plastics
  • green metal
  • light metal (white goods)

Traversing Roll Packer hydraulic locking system

Hydraulic Locking System on the Bergmann Traversing Roll Packer locks the roll packer in front of each container. The compaction arm and drum cannot descend into the container unless there is a container in front of the cab and the locking system is activated.

  • 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.
