Air Operated Oil Filter Crushers

Oil Filter CrusherOil filter crushers do far more for a facility than people assume at face value.  One might think that a machine that crushes a can is basically nothing more than a rudimentary tool of destruction and elimination.  On an operational level this might be true, but beyond the face value of their performance, they offer some very tangible and financially lucrative benefits for the companies who are smart enough to invest in them.


Let’s begin with the most obvious of these benefits—consolidation of storage space— and think through just how it adds value to an operation.   We at Easy Rack talk a lot about saving on storage space with our custom pallet racking solutions.  There are many other ways to reduce wasted space, however, aside from shelving and racking.  Getting rid of disposable materials that clutter corners and sections of the floor is a very practical way of immediately freeing up areas that are previously unusable because of trash that workers have not had a chance to take out for the day.  Common sense tells us that crushed filters take up far less room in storage areas and pose much less of a trip hazard.


Another benefit one can expect from these devices is a reduction in disposal costs.  Government regulations classify used filters as a form of hazardous waste.  There are always expensive fees attached to disposing of anything classified as hazardous waste.  When filters contain traces of residual oil, there are penalty costs attached.  Oil filter crushers drain this excess oil prior to disposal, eliminating penalty costs in the process.


Oil filter crushersAnother benefit that oil filter crushers bring to your warehouse is an improvement in facility safety.  By draining filters, you can eliminate oil spillage which can cause severe slip and fall hazards in your facility.  These devices are designed not only to flatten the filters, but also to capture and contain the excess oil so there will be no risk of worker injury in and around the places where crushed filters are subsequently stored. 


Consider as well how oil filter crushers can benefit the environment in general.  Let’s face it—all companies are now being pressured by both the government and public opinion to be more environmentally conscious.  Some companies have even improved their profit margins substantially by proving their environmental consciousness to their customer base and the public in general.  Showing the world that you have taken proactive steps in ridding the environment of a toxic and hazardous substance will go a long way toward improving your corporate image.  If you are in a vertical market where this may not be of direct financial benefit, also consider that avoiding penalties that can be imposed for environmental contamination will save you money you would otherwise lose. 


Oil filter crushers are safe and economical to operate.  Most run on shop air by means of a pneumatic pump.  The absence of a motor saves on maintenance costs and electrical power costs.  For some applications a powered unit may be necessary, however.  In these instances, Easy Rack has units that operate on electric-hydraulic power.  Crushing force ranges between 13,000 lbs for smaller units all the way up to 37,500 pounds for units designed to crush 55-gallon drums.  Ask our team which model will best meet your waste disposal needs.
