Hot Melt Units

The FD-10, FD-12, FD-15 and FD-25, our original and most popular densifiers, are hand-fed machines that process foam onsite  through a process of shredding while adding heat to densify and extrude densified purge blocks which become the final recyclable product. These machines densify three main types of foam: expanded polystyrene(EPS), expanded polyethylene(EPE) and expanded polypropylene(EPP).

The FD-20 and FD-30 are machines designed to densify bubble wrap and shrink film and as such do not have a shredder.  The FD-35 is for high volume applications, up to 1,000 lbs. of EPS, EPE, EPP/hour, comes with an input conveyor and is also capable of shredding air freight pallets.  The FD-88 is our flagship product. It also comes with an input conveyor and has been designed with a unique shredder making it capable of densifying loose foam, bubble wrap, film, PE foam sheet and coroplast in high volumes.

All FD Series foam densifiers have passed rigorous air quality testing for health and environmental safety. Better Densifiers provides equipment financing and leasing programs, as well as a one-year warranty on all parts and labor. *Ask about our turn-key set-up and training packages*
