Most Common Questions & Answers

Welcome to our FAQ section, designed to provide quick answers to questions you might have.
What’s the difference between a static compactor and a Self-Contained Compactor?

In short, the difference between a static compactor and a self-Contained Compactor is whether the press unit stays on-site or if it is attached to and follows the container.

Static compactor

A static compactor is designed to stay on-site. The press unit and the container unit are separate units and the press unit is bolted to a concrete base.

The container is attached to the press unit by ratchets. When the container is full, it is picked up for emptying and a replacement container is put into position on the press unit.

The static compactors are very well suited to handle very large amounts of waste and in situations where the is a need for constant filling.

Self-Contained Compactor

In a Self-Contained Compactor, the press unit is integrated with the container. This means that the entire unit is picked up for emptying when it is full.

The Self-Contained Compactor is often slightly smaller and have less capacity than a static compactor, because it must be easy to pick up and transport on a truck.

The Self-Contained Compactor is suitable for applications where space is confined. They can handle a wide range of waste materials including cardboard, paper, plastic, combustible waste or organic waste.

Can I connect my wet waste compactor to a static or Self-Contained Compactor?

Can I use a compactor for organic waste?
