A limited range of single to ten sack hydraulic refuse compactors, which combine automatic high capacity refuse compaction with both low capital and low running cost.

An automatic, hydraulically operated ram compactor using the extrusion principle to shear, crush and compact most types of refuse and garbage. Operating at pressures around 40,000lbs, the machine compacts refuse down to 15-20% of its original volume; packaging it directly into heavy gauge plastic sacks which can be separated for easy handling.

Manual, mechanical or refuse chute fed.  Designed to compact and package high volumes of most types of refuse, from most types of location.

Under maximum operating conditions the Harpac H100 will disinfect, compact and package up to 750 KGs per hour of typical domestic refuse.

The compaction chamber has a capacity of 0.20m3 with a machine cycle time of around 40 seconds giving a theoretical compaction volume of 18m3/hour.   Though the machine rarely hits its full theoretical operating capacity, it does have sufficient capacity to meet wide load variances.

A photoelectric beam is broken by the refuse, which commences the machines automatic cycle.  The refuse is disinfected and forced between heavy steel restrictors to produce compaction.  The compacted refuse is then extruded into a continuous plastic sack up to 5 metres in length. (For ease of handling, sacks are typically made up into 600mm lengths).

Technical Information:

The main body of the compactor is one rectangular steel tube, made from 10mm thick plate.  The compacting ram is made from 6mm plate with the face of the ram increased to 25mm plate to effectively handle the 40,000 lbs. of thrust generated by the machine.   Total weight is 700Kg.

Hydraulic Power Pack
A pre-packaged, fully connected, integrally mounted system develops over 3,000 p.s.i.   Normal operating pressure is approximately 1000 p.s.i. Motor – 40 second cycle time 4 kW. 1450rpm T.E.F.C Class F insulation.

Pump – Pressure balanced external gear type.

Pump Rate – 10-15 litre/min – Oil reservoir – 30 litres.

Control valves – 4 way.

Electrical Controls and Supply
All controls housed in easily accessible keyed cabinet which can be mounted either side of the machine (or remotely at request).

Supply – UK 415 volts, 3 phase 5 wire, 15A, 50Hz. Fused Isolator.

Export – Most voltages and cycles available.

Automatic Disinfectant Spray
A full 2.5 litre container, with a 24V pump, automatically sprays the refuse in the compaction chamber with disinfectant. Recommended disinfectant-Izal Germicide.

Repeat Hammer Action and Automatic Shut Off
The Harpac H100 features a repeat hammer action designed to move difficult or uncrushed objects. Should the repeat hammer action not be able to move the object, the machine will automatically shut-off, and signal this fact.  Audible warning available.

Caretaker Alarm
This machine in common with most compactors requires caretaker attention particularly in managing the changeover of the full plastic sacks.  As an optional extra an alarm can be fitted which alerts the attendant when the machine requires service.

Operator Safety
All access doors are electrically interlocked, if opened the compactor stops immediately.  There is also an emergency stop switch on the electric control panel.

Fire Safety
The Harpac H100 can have a fire sprinkler built in a safe location within the machine.

A standard length of 1.5 metres is supplied with each H100 as are 10 x 10 No. continuous plastic sacks.  Extensions to conveyors or special conveyors are available upon request.
