Side-Grip Lowerators

Ska Fab side-grip lowerators are an efficient way to safely decline your aluminum cans from high elevations. The small footprint saves valuable floor space and the tool-less adjustability makes line changeovers quick and easy. Elevation heights for containers entering side-grip (top) and discharging (bottom) are built to customer specifications.

Both the mini and standard S-Style lowerators feature an ionized air rinse system that rinses cans during decline.
