Screw Compactor

compact – powerful – fast

For decades our Screw Compactors have been H&G’s central and most successful product. More than 6,000 Screw Compactors installed worldwide speak volumes about the expertise of H&G and make us the technological and market leaders in this sector.

Compact and fast – through their powerful compaction of large volumes of waste and recyclable material, our Screw Compactors can double the transport weights achieved by hydraulic systems. This enables the rising tide of waste and recyclables in logistics and retailing to be controlled. Disposal processes in trade and industry can be organised more efficiently, making the most of cost-cutting potential.
