Bergmann APB 1620 Portable Compactor

The APB compactors are highly efficient in compacting paper, cardboard packaging, plastics and other dry materials, including refuse.

Bergmann Alpha Pack Bins (APB) are characterised by very high compaction results due to the linear position of the press cylinder and the continuous feeding in a large, easy to feed loading aperture.

Bergmann Portable Compactors are available in a wide range of sizes. Just contact us to discuss your exact requirements.  Integrated Bin Lifts are also available.

Container capacity ranges from 14-22m³.  One of our most popular machines is the Bergmann APB 1620 SN/20

 

Key Features

  • Designed and manufactured in Germany by Bergmann, with a pendulum roof for easy emptying
  • Ideal for compacting re-usable material like paper, cardboard, foils, etc.
  • Huge loading aperture 
  • Highest compaction due to the typically linear arrangement of the compaction cylinders so that waste is compacted to a minimum of the original volume
  • Comfortable operation by clearly arranged push buttons
  • Trouble-free emptying through pendulum roof
  • Negligible operating noise
  • Reduction of disposal costs of up to 75%
  • Long service life of the machine 
  • Drastic savings by reducing the number of disposal journeys to a minimum
  • Lowering of personnel costs for waste handling
  • Minimising the utility space for waste storage. Thus, saving on storage costs and storage areas for conventional containers




  • Huge loading aperture 
  • High processing capacity
  • Bin with pendulum roof for trouble-free emptying
  • High compaction force due to linear arrangement of cylinders
  • Press plate guiding system with 100% compaction force over the full stroke length
  • High filling weights of, on the average 4.5 tons cardboard boxes in the APB 616 SN 20 and more
  • Durable, purely hydraulic drive unit with low-maintenance hydraulic hydraulic block
  • Bottom of the loading aperture made of high-quality and wear-resistant steel
  • Front and rear pick-up hook variable in height for adjustment to all standard roll-off skip loaders
  • Laterally fastened door with 3 central locks via easy-to-serve ratchet catch
  • Pendulum claws on the break edge and the large immersion depth of the compacting piston avoid that the waste streams back
  • Easily accessible hydraulic power pack above the compaction chamber through wing doors
  • Great stability with economic net weight
  • Skirting protection of the control elements for protection against damages
  • Bin is continously welded
  • Circulation of the material due to special circulation edges at the discharge opening results in a high volume utilisation of the container

Standard equipment

  • Pick-up-system, pluggable and turnable in the front, thus fast and easy adjustment of the pick-up height by means of bolts on various unwinder types
  • Screwable pick-up-system in the back, thus pick-up height of 1,450 mm and 1,570 mm possible
  • Differential circuit for quick stroke periods
  • Pendulum roof for trouble-free emptying
  • Standard drip tray under hydraulic power pack
  • Central storm-water runoff
  • Autotimer
  • Oil level indicator and oil level monitoring
  • Overload protection
  • Working hour counter
  • Unproblematic retrofitting with a lid covering the loading aperture 
  • Hydraulically controlled and, thus, durable reversing valve
  • 2 front rollers and 2 rear rollers


Accessories 

  • ¾ full and/or 100% full signal 
  • Increased lateral walls in various designs
  • Full signal via GSM Module to user or contractor
  • Double hydraulic pump for even quicker stroke periods
  • Lid covering the loading aperture in the back or laterally attached (protects against filling by unauthorised persons and the penetration of rain water)
  • Rubber seal of the lid (reduces odours and provides water-tightness)
  • Lift-tipping-device, integrated for pivoting and/or comb lifting system (lifts the waste bin and tips the contents into the compactor)
  • Remote control via cables
  • Fire fighting point
  • Flap covering the control panel, lockable against vandalism
