The horizontal ram compactor is ideal for compaction of municipal solid waste and similar; packaging waste (paper boxes, cardboard, cellophane, polystyrene); materials easily reduced in volume (plastic bottles, lightweight plastic boxes, waste from industrial processes).
The horizontal ram compaction system consists of a presser controlled by two oil-hydraulic cylinders placed inside the structure. The compression blade (ram) is guided by angular sections placed on the bottom of the compression chamber and sliding is assured by cast polyamide shoes (ERTALON 6PLA).
The material fed into the loading mouth, falls into the compression chamber at the moment when the blade moves backward and is pushed into the box during the forward movement of the blade transferring the waste from the loading mouth into the compacting compartment. A sliding plate installed above the compression blade prevents the material from falling behind the same during forward motion.
