S & S Bakery – Case Study

Challenge: An overwhelming amount of 50lb sacks needed to be compacted “smack in the middle of the production area.” The noise generated from a traditional compactor would prove overwhelming and be a detriment to a productive, happy workforce.
Solution: Placed the RotoPac with a hood.
Result: It’s high compaction, small footprint, proved ideal for compacting 50lb sacks (commonplace in the food industry). It has the additional benefit of being quieter than a vacuum cleaner and compacts at a high rate while the hood aided in containing the dust.

Williams Food – Case Study

Challenge: 50lb sacks being opened and their contents dumped into blenders on mezzanine level while bags were placed into numerous dumpsters before being removed from the area.
Solution: Placed the RotoPac rotary arm compactor on the ground level and attached an additional push button station (On -Off-Run button) up to the mezzanine. Operators can open the sacks and then place them into a chute that drops into the commercial trash compactor RotoPac™. Trash can still be put into the RotoPac on the ground level.
Result: High compaction ratios produced with the RotoPac industrial trash compactor greatly reduced the number of dumpsters and their movement on the floor. This improved safety, reduced labor and provided a cleaner operation.

West Pharmaceutical – Case Study

Challenge: Combustible dust was being generated in a process area where considerable waste was produced.
Solution: The RotoPacBlastPac a hazardous and explosive environment waste compactor was installed.
Result: Met Class II, Division II dust requirements.

Weetabix – Case Study

Challenge: Very bulky trash filling up dumpsters. British cereal maker brings in grain in large Super sacks (polypropylene bags). The bags are only used once and then thrown away.
Solution: KenBay placed a RotoPac compactor.
Result: The client can compact 100 Super sacks into the standard 4’x4’x4’ 3ml plastic bag. Getting 100 bags compacted in a solitary KenBay compactor bag provides the client more space in their facility.

Wardcraft – Case Study

Challenge: Matrix left from the manufacturing of labels is sticky and needs to be compacted without sticking to machinery in the process. Reduce compacting and labor costs of disposing of sticky matrix left from producing labels.
Solution: The RotoPac with Teflon® coated drum was installed to compact matrix being blown into it from two label making machines.
Result: The client, a maker of pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) material for making labels, primarily for the pharmaceutical industry, was blowing the matrix material through plasma coated 12” pipes to a RotoPac. The compacted materials produced about 750 lb bags of waste for disposal.

United States Navy – Case Study

Challenge: Cost of disposing of hazardous waste in tri-wall boxes produced by their paint shop doing repair to aircraft.
Solution: A RotoPacHazPac with its 6 to 1 compaction was installed.
Result: The high compaction reduced the number of tri-wall boxes needed by a factor of 6 and significantly hauling costs producing a savings of $29,000 per year.

United States Army – Case Study

Challenge: An army installation was built inside a mountain providing very high security. To remove trash from the secure area the maintenance personnel had to take the trash through a security checkpoint and again when they returned the dumpster to the secure area. The process of removing several cubic yards of trash took over 2 hours.
Solution: The RotoPac commercial trash compactor was placed.
Result: With the RotoPac, they were able to reduce these trips by 80%. The RotoPac’s ease of use significantly reduced the personnel effort required to remove waste from the fort.

Statesman Journal – Case Study

Challenge: Time wasted using a baler to compact paper trim.
Solution: The RotoPac replaced a complex baler system the client had been using
Result: the process saved space, staff hours and money according to their distribution center manager. “We placed the RotoPac right on the floor by the stitcher-trimmer, which allowed us to eliminate the considerable length of the vacuum system that used to haul the waste to the baler one floor up.” The compactor allowed the client to not only minimize their waste but also permitted the newspaper to redirect the efforts of one worker from waste recovery at the baler to more productive work.

Southern Meats – Case Study

Challenge: To cost effectively dispose of Super Sacks that are no longer useable.
Solution: They are using the RotoPac for compacting unusable Super Sacks. An air filtration/collection system was installed to collect dust and other small particles escaping during the compacting process.
Result: The RotoPac bags, when compacted with up to 80 large Super Sacks, form a 4’ cube makes transporting them considerably less costly.

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.
