SP Industries’ Single Cylinder Prescrusher Series Handles Lighter Duty Waste Streams
SP Industries’ PC-3001 through PC-6001 Precrusher Series features the same footprint and processing controls as the company’s max-duty heavy industrial models with a more economical single-cylinder design tailored specifically for lighter duty waste streams with lower compaction force requirements.
Designed for lower volume industrial and smaller product destruction applications, the PC-3001, PC-4001 and PC-6001 can be operated in either precrusher or compactor-only mode. Up to eight precrush cycles can be programmed to allow maximum breakdown of materials that are difficult to compact. The compactor-only mode is used when reduced cycle time and/or increased throughput of refuse into the compaction container is desired. All units are constructed of AISI grade steel and structural steel reinforcements and meet or exceed current ANSI Z245.2 safety standards for compaction equipment, according to the company.
The series is offered with 3-, 4- or 6-cubic yard capacities. In compaction-only mode, the per hour volume capacity ranges from 179 to 212 cubic yards. In precrushing mode, volume ranges from 135 to 179 cubic yards. The clear top opening is approximately 48” x 57” on the smallest unit up to 88” x 57” on the largest model. All size units provide 69,300 lb. normal and 88,000 lb. maximum packing force. The remote hydraulic power unit included with each unit comes with a 100 gallon oil reservoir and a 30 GPM pump powered by a 25 HP 230/460 3-phase motor.
The systems are readily tailored to the specific environmental and installation requirements of the application, including appropriate loading platforms and ramps, hoppers, gates, chutes and access panels. Accompanying waste material containers can also be fabricated to accommodate the desired means of transport, weight of compacted materials and any other customer requirements.
