SV15 Screw Auger Compactor

The SV11, SV15, SV18 and SV22 screw compactors have the same configuration but with different motor sizes and motors. The tougher the material, the stronger the motor required: for example wood pallets and crates would need SV22.

Screw compactors deliver high compaction ratios even on tough materials such as wooden pallets so robust construction is essential. Each compactor has:

Solid bearing: The gearing is directly on the pivot bearing and can take power ratings up to 22kW.

Extra reinforcement on the gear unit for the highest torque levels.

Automatic feeder device which forces material on to the screw for high throughput rates

Tapered auger (screw) in a one-piece construction for the toughest of applications.

Strong docking clamps with 'container-present' function.

Robust seal between the filling space and the drive compartment
