Innnovative Recycling Technology

The Bergmann PS8100 is the original bag compactor. It has now been superceded by the Bergmann 1400-E Rotary Baler

The Bergmann 1400-E has a larger capacity and a new design while including all the features of the original PS8100. Click the link in the bold text above to get all the information on the 1400-E.


Accessories and features

Small area for waste management (for example city centre hotels and shops)No room for multiple bins
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 PS8100 can be loaded from a vertical chute
As an alternative to a baler, particularly for plastics and shrinkwrap

How The Bergmann
PS8100 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; 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; is pulled out with 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 (commonly available in London for example).
