Steel Drum Compactors
Although standard 55 gallon drums are one of the most convenient storage mediums seen in modern industrial facilities, the greatest limitation offered by the vessels is their comparatively large size that makes disposal difficult. When your business uses a lot of drums, you will soon discover that these useful storage items quickly become a liability when it comes to disposal. The relatively large size of the barrels coupled with the important and highly expensive costs of disposal under EPA guidelines means that one of the most important considerations facing any user of standard drums is their disposal. With this in mind, having appropriate systems such as steel drum compactors in place to reduce the disposal cost is vital to ensuring the continued profitability of your business.
Many recycling and disposal companies make a charge to companies based on the volume of the items that they are dealing with, so crushing any waste drums to the smallest size possible will reduce your costs enormously. Steel drum compactors are able to take a standard empty 55 gallon drum, and then compress it to just 6 inches in height using more than 38,000 lbs of crushing power.
The latest steel drum compactors are high powered and are excellent for reducing the amount of storage space required for waste, and reduce the costs of disposal too.
Thanks to their push button operation, the steel drum compactors are incredibly simple for anyone to use, and a 25 second turnaround between crushing actions, it is possible to run a very effective process and get the most out of the machine.
Many businesses use standard 55 gallon drums for disposal of general waste from industrial processes, and a drum compactor can help in this regard. As well as being used to crush drums down to just 6 inches in height, fitting a different head onto the piston, the compactor can be used to compress the waste in a drum, allowing you to fit even more waste materials into it. This will allow for you to make enormous reductions to the amount of waste that your business produces, and minimize the amount of storage space that you need for waste.
The cost benefits of a drum compactor are numerous, ranging from the fact that they reduce the amount that a business needs to pay for the disposal of used drums through to the more subtle savings such as the reduction in the amount of space that needs to be dedicated to storing waste products. The drum compactor is an increasingly important part of any business’ waste management strategy, and as greater focus is placed on recycling and sustainable management of resources, the ability to prepare drums for reuse by crushing them for storage means that you will be doing your bit for the environment by getting drums ready for reprocessing.
With the ease of use offered by the latest steel drum compactors, and the impressive power that they are able to bring into place for crushing and compressing waste makes them a useful tool for managing your storage space.
