Foam Densification Technologies

Fast, efficient and sophisticated densification processes that reduce waste volume and prepares material for commercial reuse Product density increased by up to 90%.


The Avangard Innovative Thermal Densification Process

Thermal densification is for pure material only and combines a rotating screw within a thermal environment to squash and melt the material to an effective density of one-tenth its former state. A mesh filter ensures a purified product which is then ready to be melted down for remoulding. Thermal densification produces a smooth-skinned product that more effectively maintains its shape than the cold formed product. The achievable density reduction across the range is 90%.

All machines incorporate a small Pre-Shredder to prepare material for the densification process and have a working capacity of between 25 and 1000 kg per hour. All machines are hand fed, however, bulk feeders are available for the high volume machines.

Operator Safety

Conceptual design of guard, also showing exhaust attachments

Brentwood and Avangard Innovative offer machines that satisfy the high operator safety standards in Australia. The machines are all provided with the following essential safety items applicable to Thermal Densifiers with pre-shredders:

  • Safety Guard to protect the operator from the hot outlet and melted EPS at the outlet. The guard allows easy removal and positioning of the moulds. Each model densifier uses guards of different design and is subject to change.
  • Electrical system to Category 3 Safety standards – required due to moving machinery and potential for injury
  • Exhaust fume attachments for fitting (by the operator) of piping to allow the release of odours and fumes away from operators
