Balex 30 “Carpet Crusher”

The ” carpet crusher ” makes light work of large quantities of carpet offcuts. Whilst its small in size, it has a large capacity and delivers high press forces for fast, easy compression of carpets.

With its extremely wide load opening the Balex 30 has the capacity to handle larger pieces of carpet. This makes the daily use much easier.

Kenburn and Carpet Recycling UK can provide free impartial advice on how best to recycle a material which is currently going to landfill will no doubt be costing you a fortune.

Marie Rhodes, Membership Co-ordinator, CRUK comments “The easy to operate “Kenburn Carpet Crusher” has been designed specifically to significantly reduce the volume of waste carpet with a 4:1 compaction ratio. By simply reducing the volume of waste carpet, transport costs to the numerous carpet recycling plants throughout the UK are kept to a minimum.

With landfill costs now reaching up to £120.00 per tonne it makes both commercial and environmental sense to look at alternative methods of carpet waste disposal.  The Kenburn Carpet Crusheris available to purchase or rent and several of our members are already benefitting from cost savings associated with an investment in a crusher.”

As members of CRUK, Kenburn visit flooring contractors and retailers throughout the UK offering free impartial advice on how best to recycle waste carpet.

Kenburn works closely with Carpet Recycling UK and well as with “waste to energy” companies.  They use underlay and waste carpet to power concrete kilns, because these waste streams have a high calorific value.
