|A container refuse
compactor, which combines automatic high capacity refuse compaction with both low capital
and low running cost. Suitable for use with refuse chutes up to 600mm dia.
An automatic, hydraulically operated ram compactor using the extrusion
principle to shear, crush and compact most types of domestic refuse and garbage.
Operating at pressures around 40,000 lbs., the machine compacts refuse down to 15-20% of
its original volume; packaging it directly into specially adapted containers.
Manual, mechanical or refuse chute feed. Designed to compact and package
high volumes of most types of refuse, from most types of location directly into containers
of 770-1100L capacity. Containers are emptied by rear loading or front loading
Under maximum operating conditions the Harpac H150 will disinfect, compact and package
up to 750 KGs per hour of typical domestic or other 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 steel Harcon compaction
The main body of the compactor is one rectangular steel tube made from 10mm 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.
