Premier Aviation – Case Study

Challenge: They were spending too much time on disposing of masking tape and plastic associated with receiving and painting aircraft in for maintenance and re-finishing. Since these materials are contaminated they had to be packaged in such a way as to meet environmental requirements. They were paying their hauler too much for its deposal.
Solution: Their Quality Control Manager, after doing research contacted KenBay who recommended the RotoPac. Premium is finding that the RotoPac is very effective in accepting and compacting large sheets of plastic along with masking tape into environmentally approved bags.
Result: They average between 600 and 700 lbs. of compacted waste material per bag. Premier found they are paying for the RotoPac in one year from the savings they are accruing from their hauler. They are very pleased with the performance of the RotoPac.

Cessna – Case Study

Challenge: Need to reduce the number of waste receptacles filled with cardboard, trash and plastics and time required collecting them.
Solution: The RotoPac Industrial Waste Compactor with 6 to 1 compaction placed near source of the industrial waste.

Bombardier – Case Study

Challenge: To dispose of masking material from the painting of airplanes. During the process, light bulky material, mostly paper, disposable protective clothing, plastic and tape needs to be compacted within the painting area. The material, which includes paint containing chrome, is considered hazardous. They required an industrial waste compactor that could meet the Class II, Division II requirements.
Solution: KenBay designed the RotoPacBlastPac Hazardous and Explosive Environment Waste Compactor.
Result: The custom compactor meets their requirements.

Boeing – Case Study

  • Challenge: The facility generates a huge amount of trash, disparagingly referred to as Foreign Object Debris (F.O.D.), considered lethal to an aircraft.
  • Solution: Client purchased approximately 50 RotoPac™ industrial waste compactors and placed them throughout the production area.
  • Result: They are able to compact at a 10-1 ratio (customer’s figure) saving money and personnel needed to handle the volume of F.O.D. Under the current system, trash removal has gone from as much as six times a day to only once a day. The company’s move to the Rotary Arm Compactor, the RotoPac™ has enabled production workers to concentrate on the manufacturing process and not waste handling.
    The RotoPac™ industrial waste compactor has a 4-ft. x 5-ft. footprint equal to one of the metal trash boxes it replaced. That meant a significance savings of valuable shop space as one plastic bag of compacted trash equaled 10 boxes. Client places great emphasis on employee safety and the introduction of the “at-the-source” compactor has virtually eliminated the risk of injuries created by the heavy metal carts. The RotoPac industrial waste compactor is a very safe and easy to use compactor, requiring minimal training and allows production personnel to work on assembling aircraft, not carting away trash.
