The ESCO foam block crusher is a heavy-duty unit designed to break the cell structure of HR foam, thereby liberating gases and creating a more luxurious feeling foam without the odors emitted by trapped gases.

The bun crusher can be integrated into an automated cutting line allowing 50'-100' long buns to be conveyor fed to the crusher, crushed and then fed automatically to the ESCO blocking saw to cut blocks to the desired width and length, removing the outer skins.

Common Applications

Furniture, bedding, mattresses, automotive and upholestry industries where block crushing is needed

Commonly Processed Materials

Viscoelastic foam, polyether, HR, flexible and other similar materials
