Cutting Down on Cardboard Packaging

Industrial Rotary Arm Compactor Compacts Cardboard

An animal health care company, one of the world’s largest producers of medicine and vaccinations for pets and livestock, recently began using a KenBay RotoPac industrial trash compactor for compacting their packaging waste.

As shipments come into the facility, boxes are emptied before the incoming items are moved to the production area. Packaging is not permitted in the production area where animal medicines are made.

Duracell – Case Study

Challenge: Duracell, the well-known battery maker, was using a vertical baler to crush industrial Super Sacks at its South Carolina location. The Sacks came to Duracell containing a black dust ingredient for producing their batteries. The Sacks no longer had a use so they were being baled to reduce the cost of hauling for disposal. However, as the bags were crushed in the baling process the black dust was being dispersed into the surrounding area. This caused a serious hazard problem to the workers. Duracell needed a cost effective way of containing the dust and keeping the bales from creating a black trail as they were transported to an outside dumpster.

Solution: Through an internal search of their parent company Procter&Gamble, the KenBay RotoPac industrial compactor was found to be used for compacting waste in polyethylene bulk bags in another location. Duracell learned that by merely placing a steel hood over the RotoPac, the dust could be contained as the Super Sacks were compacted into the bulk bags. Since the polyethylene bags could be easily sealed when filled, they could be transported without the dust causing a problem.

The RotoPac compacted approximately 80 dusty Sacks into a single bulk bag forming an approximate one meter cube, ideal for ease of transport. No longer did the compacting of the Sacks have to be performed in a separate room. Since the RotoPac has a footprint slightly larger than a standard pallet, the compacting of the bags could be done in the corner of a storage room. Another benefit achieved using the RotoPac was by customizing its input and extraction of the filled bag, making the process much safer.

Benefits: Increased safety, reduced hauling costs, and the elimination of the need for a separate room to compact Sacks. In all, a cleaner working environment.

Dumpster with boxes

It’s a never ending battle: your company produces waste, your workers haul it to dumpsters or recycling bins – or spend work hours cutting up cardboard boxes – and the cycle begins again, all in an effort to keep trash from taking up space.

This scenario plays out every day at businesses around the country…except for the ones who understand all of the benefits and have made the decision to invest in an industrial waste compactor.

In this blog post, we’ll look at a few reasons why an industrial trash compactor can help your company: save space; improve safety and security; save hauling, transportation and fuel costs and, generally become a greener, cleaner company. (more…)

The Safest Way to Use a Cardboard Baler

cardboard baler

Your business relies on cardboard. It’s hard to imagine how products would make it in and out without cardboard boxes.

But although cardboard is essential, it takes up a lot of room when you’re done using it, thus taking up space in your facility that could otherwise be put to better use.

Enter the cardboard baler.

These devices allow you compress cardboard into small, manageable bales, giving you less waste to deal with. They’re incredibly useful devices, but like any machinery, you need to exercise precautions when using them. (more…)

Food and Beverage Label Waste

Creative Labels, located in Gilroy, CA, has been in the business of producing high-quality labels for more than 35 years. The labels they produce are primarily for prime foods and beverages.

Label making generates a great deal of trim waste consisting of paper and plastic.  When the label producing machines operate for what are generally 12 hour-days during busy seasons, considerable waste is produced. Prior to 2004, Creative Labels had to wind up the waste from their machines, stop the presses to remove the rolls and try to stomp down the waste to compact it somewhat before putting it into containers. That made it difficult, costly, and time-consuming to dispose of this waste. However, in 2004 when the KenBay RotoPac compactor became available in the US, Creative Labels installed one because it offered significant uptime on the printing presses, which saved time, labor and money.

Meet the New Smart RotoPac Commercial Trash Compactor

commercial trash compactor Smart RotoPac

Designed more than 20 years ago in Europe, the RotoPac was created to offer maximum waste compaction with a minimal footprint. This development was crucial to manufacturing facilities in Europe that were starved for space.

The RotoPac can provide 6-to-1 compaction in a 51-inch by 61-inch space thanks to its unique design: a distributor providing hydraulic power to a drum that is continuously rotated and swept.

The result is a commercial trash compactor designed for both simplicity and longevity, one that applies continuous waste compaction through higher-than-expected torque. It’s what we like to think of as the workhorse of the industrial waste compaction field. (more…)
