The Minimator

Compacting used beverage containers, such as PET bottles, aluminum cans, Tetra Pak, and other types, is crucial for efficient storage, transportation, and further processing.

At Nordic Recycling Systems, we’ve collaborated closely with our customers to develop a compactor range specifically tailored for used beverage containers. Our Minimator series comes in various sizes, offering capacities ranging from 500 to 1800 units per minute, with compaction ratios ranging from 1:2 to 1:4. One of its unique features is its gentle compaction process, avoiding the ripping or grinding of aluminum or PET, unlike many other compactors on the market.

The Minimator is available in a standalone configuration and can be easily integrated into various applications, including counting lines and reverse vending machines (RVMs) in deposit markets, or other industrial applications requiring compaction of different container types.

Designed for longevity and low operational costs, our Minimator machines have compacted several hundred million units worldwide. Compacted materials are handled using traditional conveyors or our own developed and integrated air conveying systems, which are very clean and flexible in terms of labels- and liquids spillage.

Made in Scandinavia
The Minimator was developed in Scandinavia under scandinavian conditions. Due to the hars winter conditions it have to withstand the load of bottels filled with ice without breaking down. Our northest machine is with a customer above the arctic circle in Norway. We produce and assemble the Minimators in our own factory in Zealand in Denmark. Our Minimators can be found at customers in Scandinavia as well as North america. We are currently expanding our production to cope with the international demand.
