Multi-Chamber Bottle Can Crusher


                      MULTI-CHAMBER BOTTLE CAN CRUSHER - BCC-1600


Request Info on Multiple Products - (Secure Area)

The Bottle Can Crusher can operate on Single Phase Power and yet it can crush PET bottles with the caps on! The standard dual chamber and the ability to add more chambers means that sorting and crushing can take place with ease. The very dense, yet easy to handle bales of crushed PET and aluminum cans can easily be stacked.  The cans do not require any tying and the PET bottles require just two bands.

PET Bottles are processed by first perforating the bottles and then crushing them so that this two step process is performed quickly and efficiently. When the machine is set to the 'Can' mode, no perforation step takes place.  When set to Plastic mode the spikes system is activated. The base machine is a dual chamber and additional chambers can be added.
