Densifiers for Managing Styrofoam Waste

Densifiers for Managing Styrofoam Waste

If you package bulk products such as furniture, or fragile items that can easily break, then Styrofoam is essential to your business. While its light weight and versatility make it a highly effective packing material, Styrofoam can impact the environment and create a significant mess at your facility if your waste is not managed properly. At Ely Enterprises, we rent and sell densifier solutions to companies of all sizes. Densifiers, such as hot melt and cold press equipment, can either melt or compress Styrofoam waste into dense blocks that can be sold to recycling companies. While we offer both types of densifiers, hot melt units are often preferred by our customers.

Hot Melt Densifiers

You likely package your products using several different types of foam with varying densities, which creates different types of waste. Unlike cold press densifiers that can only be used to compress a single type of foam at your facility, hot melt densifiers can melt every type of foam, regardless of density. Equally important, when using a hot melt densifier, you can produce very dense blocks, which allows you to pack more waste onto each truck that’s heading to your recycler. This helps you generate more revenue, create efficiencies and enhance cleanliness at your facility.

Facility Cleanliness

Who doesn’t want their facility to be as clean as possible? Lightweight material like Styrofoam is easily blown or scattered throughout your property, creating a mess and potential safety hazard. With a densifier, this common problem goes away.


Whether it’s a hot melt or cold press densifier, you’ll not only generate an additional revenue stream by selling your foam waste to a recycler, you’ll also be helping the environment. Did you know that Styrofoam can take hundreds of years to decay in a landfill? At Ely Enterprises, we offer a much better, environmentally-sustainable solution.
