THE LION – Optimum compression without re-expansion

The Heger THE LION line uses innovative technology to compress bulky foam waste (EPS (Styropor®), XPS, EPP and EPE) extremely efficiently into easy to manage, stackable blocks – with no re-expansion. THE LION is therefore the all-rounder of the compression systems. Even crushed PE foil pieces can be compressed into dimensionally stable blocks.

The extreme reduction in volume thus achieved (in the ratio of 50:1) does not only produce a considerable saving in transport and disposal costs, but the blocks produced can be also recycled as material, therefore contributing to a rapid amortisation.

Technical features
