  • The bag splitting & emptying machine has been developed for processing recyclable waste wholly or partially bagged for subsequent sorting in the waste processing facilities

  • Bags are opened and valuable material pulled out by means of the spring loaded knives is equipped with slitting teeth

  • The product is conveyed to the slitting rotator by means of a chain conveyor in the discharge hopper


  • Reduces the need for manual labour, ensuring the subsequent processes run at optimum levels by efficiently meeting and feeding recyclables to the production line

  • Special ripper knives for all small bags

  • The valuable substances are not compressed or shredded during processing so that films placed in tin etc, can be easily separated in the subsequent processing stages

  • Hardox ripper spring loaded fingers are spaced to open bags from super market bags to bin bags to give 95% opening effectiveness
