Note: Unless proper internal procedures are followed, and the user / company has proper controls in place, it is not recommended that hazardous wastes of any kind be compacted.
The PortaPack Compactors are not only useful for a variety of applications but they are also an excellent choice for low budgets. Either compact the contents of a 1 cubic yard container box (roughly 36" x 36" x 36"); a 55 gallon drum or a standard wheeled trash bin (96 Gallon). Simply position the compactor head over the applicable container and you are ready to compact. The versatility of the PortaPack Compactors makes them a must for almost every type of operation, especially those that already use drums, boxes and wheeled trash bins (96 gallon) for waste discards. Compaction ratios (or reduction ratios) of up to 8 to 1 can be achieved depending upon trash profile.
Aside from the obvious benefits of greatly reducing waste disposal and hazardous material costs (by up to 50 - 75%) these compactors can also help reduce material handling costs and clutter.
Operation is Simple, Convenient and Safe
The PortaPack Compactors are very simple, convenient and safe to operate. After placing the compaction head over an appropriate drum, box or trash bin, all it takes is a push of a button. Depending on preferences, the units can be powered either by Air or Electric / Hydraulic. When powered pneumatically, a basic Compressor with just a 20 gallon tank and 5 HP motor producing roughly 80 - 100 PSI is all that is required to generate the proper force for compaction. (These compressors are sold at all major outlets such as Home Depot and Lowes etc). And, depending upon preferences, there is a wide range of features, such as Two Hand, No Tie Down Actuators and spark resistant compaction plates.
These low budget compaction systems are equipped with many standard features that make it a must for a variety of compacting needs.
