The Hydro Cruncher is a simple machine with three main parts, the compressing chamber, the base and the heating element that heats water to compress trash and crack nuts. An electric current running through the heating element will heat the water in the base, causing the water to expand, pushing against a strong spring that pulls the top of a small chamber down and compresses anything in the chamber.
