Big Bag compactor

Our compactor turns used empty Big Bags into small bags, which can be disposed of in a space-saving and handy manner. The machine pushes the used Big Bags compacted into a Big Bag, which in turn offers all the advantages of this large packaging for cost-effective disposal. Inside the empty bag compactor, a screw mechanism ensures that the air is quickly released from Big Bags and other packaging materials or waste – and this is largely dust-free for the outside world. The machine itself is a compact design and consequently requires little space.

Product description

A compactor screw with declining inclination is located in the Big Bag compactor. Guide rails ensure that the bags are discharged safely and reliably.


This screw is used to press the empty Big Bags into a container. Containers can be Big Bags, barrels, containers or an endless film tube. Depending on the material and size, up to 10-15 Big Bags can be disposed of in a Big Bag with a volume of 1 m³.


The Big Bag empty bag compactor can be positioned directly at the work station thanks to its compact design. This avoids unnecessary distances for the operator and the risk of dust emissions. It is generally supplied as a mobile unit and can be moved to different work stations as required. Alternatively, the Big Bag screw compactor is also available as a stationary unit and as a machine supplement.


The compactor is manufactured in 1.0038 painted steel or stainless steel 1.4301. Other materials upon request. The Big Bag empty bag compactor is optionally suitable for use in areas at risk of explosion.

Functional description

Before it is actually used, the empty bag compactor is moved to the required position and connected to the power and compressed air. The compactor is generally designed with a cable and plug. A hose with a hose coupling is sufficient to connect the compressed air.


Attaching the disposal container

The operator attaches the disposal container loops to the empty bag compactor’s discharge. In general, a Big Bag’s loops are attached to the hooks provided.


The Big Bag’s infeed connection is connected to the compactor using a torque bag clamp. An additional module is required for compaction in a container.


Loading the compactor

After opening the cover, insert 2-3 Big Bags into the empty Big Bag compactor. Opening the cover activates the vacuum. The screw is switched off for safety reasons when the cover is open.


The compaction process

Close the cover. After you press the start button, the screw starts to turn. The Big Bags are compacted by the declining screw and pressed through a discharge cone into the container used for disposal.


Replacing the filled Big Bag

After the collection container is filled, it is disconnected from the Big Bag compactor and sealed. The Big Bag that is to be disposed of can then be conveyed away on a pallet for example.

Our individual customer solutions in the Big Bag handling sector

Our systems differ as much as our customers’ requirements and almost always have an individual note. Each system is therefore unique.

We can use system modules to offer, design and produce numerous solutions quickly and in a reproducible manner. Furthermore, our range of modules increases continuously due to the requirements of our new customers.
