The Haarslev Waste Food Crusher is specially designed to help reduce the size of the particles in food returns and packaged food waste, before this is sent on to other depacking or size reduction equipment for further separation into organic and non-organic waste.

In many cases – usually because of there being many different types of packaging – it is easier and more cost-effective to crush such material first, rather than sending it directly to a depacker. The shredded material can then be passed through metal detection equipment, before passing on to the depacker setup.

These straightforward crushers feature throughputs of as much as 20 tons/hour, depending on the particular input specs.

Applicable for

  • Dealing effectively with supermarket food returns and other packaged food waste
  • Before other depacking or size reduction equipment
  • Before metal detection and removal equipment for removing smaller metal items
