Single Drum Compactors

Storing used oil drums consumes a lot of space, and without some kind of single drum compactor on site, you will need to give over a great deal of space to the storage of these containers due to their large size.Single Drum Compactors


Whether storage space within your premises is limited, or you simply prefer to concentrate your resources on production and storing unused raw materials, waste management is of major concern to many business owners, as it can represent a fair percentage of overall costs without actually providing revenue.  Storing used oil drums consumes a lot of space, and without some kind of single drum compactor on site, you will need to give over a great deal of space to the storage of these containers due to their large size.


Oil drums have become one of the most important storage facilities in the modern industrial world, and have a huge number of uses within a modern factory.  From being used as containers for raw materials through to being used as a trash can once they are empty, drums have a long life within the factory.  Eventually, the drums have no further use, and need to be disposed of however, and whether this is because they have been used to hold noxious or other volatile chemicals and can no longer be kept safely, or because they have simply rusted through being used for a long time, the result is the same.  They are garbage themselves, and must be got rid of.


Unfortunately, these bulky items are quite expensive to dispose of in their normal form, as only a few can be carried away at a time.  With this in mind, a method of crushing drums once they are no longer needed is essential, and this is where a single drum compactor comes in very useful.  These powerful and useful pieces of equipment feature a heavy weight construction that is highly specialized for its purpose, and offer you the ability to use forces of up to 37,000 lb to compress a waste drum from its regular height down to just 6 inches in height.


The Power behind single drum compactors comes from a hydraulic oil filled piston that pushes down onto the lid of the drum, piercing it to allow air to escape, before applying relentless pressure onto the top of the barrel and crushing it to less than 10% of its previous volume.  Once the drum is flattened, the piston can return to its original position in just 25 seconds, allowing your operator to get through waste at an impressive speed.


Aside from being almost peerless in terms of its ability to compress drums, the single drum compactor can also be used to compress trash and other waste inside a drum in order to allow you to get your waste down in size and make it much easier to store.  Depending on the materials that you are hoping to dispose of, the powerful piston ram in the compactor can make a huge impact on the volume of industrial waste that your business produces.


Over its lifespan, the single drum compactor will save you a great deal of money thanks to the savings that you will get from reducing your volume of waste for disposal, along with the fact that you will require less space within your facility to be turned over for waste storage, and allowing you to focus more resources on more profitable activities within your business.
