Abstract (en)

A device for the compression of waste material which has a suction appliance consisting of a large area of flexible porous material so that air can be suctioned from a large area and, following compression, this suction appliance can still be removed through a small opening. This device also comprises a bag-sealing cylinder consisting of an inflatable flexible cylinder whereby the bag is hermetically sealed during compression. Also, the vacuum pump is equipped with an airflow reversal appliance allowing the airflow, stirred up by the vacuum pump, to be reverted if needed from inflowing to outflowing air so that with the same pump the bag-sealing cylinder can be inflated and then the bag itself can be compressed. <IMAGE>
