The KK 240 screw compactor is the second largest machine for compacting EPS and is recommended for an annual volume of 30-50 tonnes. The screw compactor can compact the EPS at a ratio of up to 50:1. This machine can compact approx. 75 kg of EPS per hour (approx. 110 fish boxes with lids) or 3,000 half-litre PET bottles per hour. The density of the blocks is 350 kg/m³.

The compacted blocks can be stacked on a pallet and sold for recycling.

The EPS will be precrushed in the hopper and compacted by the screw and the automatic hydraulic jaws into the solid and uniform blocks. The density and size of the the EPS is crucial for the choise of pre-crusher. The machine can be fed manually into a 45° hopper or by conveyor belt into a vertical hopper. The different incorperated sensors ensure easy operation with the automatic start and stop function and adjustable speed. It is also possible to place the compactor below a silo and to buy the automatic block divider.

The machine is fitted with hydraulic/electrically-controlled jaws, which allow it to maintain an almost constant compression pressure.
