Depackaging machines to separate organic content from its packaging in processing organic food waste. Packaged foods enter the machine, and two streams come out – clean, organic flow free of any packaging scraps; and empty, recyclable packaging free of organic matter.

Packaged food waste can range from tough material like canned food to soft bread. Machines are flexible to suit your system and the material you choose to process. The machines don’t pulverize the packaging material, so it remains relatively intact as the food content is let free.

This robust SMICON machine has full circumference screening panels to handle a higher capacity of material than similar products. SMICON has 4 sections of full circumference screening panels to make setup easy and to provide more customization options.
