The Enviropactor™ system is flexible and can be adapted
for application in all urban and rural situations. Ninety per cent of used beverage containers (UBC), glass
& steel excepted, can be easily compacted at point of pick-up and KC Sargent Sales has developed the Enviropactor™
for this purpose.
Compaction occurs in 2 stages: vertically, fixed at a 2:1 ratio, and horizontally, variable for up to a further 2:1
depending on back pressure created by the preceding bag. Compacted tote bags are secured by 2 wire ties. The Enviropactor™
can achieve a maximum compression rate of up to 4:1.
The Enviropactor™, which is easily installed in a conventional
transport trailer, is powered hydraulically and controlled by a 12 volt PLC.
(except glass and steel) weighing up to 60lb, are side loaded. The loading chamber is closed with a steel door and the automatic
cycle started. Totes of glass or steel are loaded conventionally using a pallet jack.
