LFA DC ATEX – Drum Crusher


The LFA DC ATEX is a fully automatic hydraulic machine that crushes drums up to 205 litres (1080mm high). The large 20 tonne force is able to crush drums by as much as 80% saving space and disposal costs. With a fast cycle time of 35 seconds, it will quickly crush the drums making it capable of processing 100 drums per hour. As the LFA DC ATEX has an IP rating of 65 it can withstand all forms of weather so it can be sited inside or outside. In addition to this the drum crusher is ATEX rated meaning that the machine is suitable to crush drums that have had flammable/explosive materials in them or positioned in an explosive environment.

The LFA DC ATEX is very easy to use. It only takes 35 seconds for a full compaction cycle.


Open the feed door and place a drum inside. Close the door and latch it shut. Press the green ‘go’ button and the LFA DC ATEX will run a full compaction cycle. If the door is opened during the compaction cycle, the machine will power off for safety purposes. When the cycle is complete, open the feed door and exchange drums.


As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to do this in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.


*Note – Refurbished models may vary in its operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
