PEMEX – Case Study

Challenge: This state owned gas utility had a requirement for the disposal of trash from an oil platform in the tropics. They had limited space, a punishing environment, need for ease of use, and convenient way of transporting waste from the platform to shore.
Solution: Working with client’s engineering consulting firm, KenBay built the highest quality RotoPacSeaPac made entirely of 316 stainless steel with all valves, wires, controls, etc. sealed.

Cashman Equipment – Case Study

Challenge: Client required two marine environment SeaPac compactors requiring little space on two 2 new floating barges which will house 288 people each.
Solution: Assuming 10 lbs of trash per day for each person, the client determined that only a rotary arm compactor like the RotoPac industrial waste compactor could compact this amount into manageable 4’ cube-bags weighing 650 lbs each.
Result: These compacted bags are easily taped off to be stored until carted away. On a barge this size with this many inhabitants, space is at a premium.

GlaxoSmithKline – Case Study

Challenge: Having an employee hit by a forklift can be a huge unforeseen expense. Luckily it was a small accident that prompted a pharmaceutical giant to bring in 2 RotoPac hazardous and explosive environment waste compactors. Prior to that, gaylords (small boxes) were placed all around the production facility and forklifts constantly drove through the production lines to remove them.
Solution: Placed a RotoPac on the plant floor
Result: A big savings achieved by the safety it provided by reduced forklift traffic. Client is able to compact empty toothpaste boxes instead of staging them which takes up floor space, as well as compacting plastic film so it can be recycled. The RotoPacs eliminate all the bins and staged trash in the loading dock area creating a lot of extra room for unloading and loading trailers.

Good Food – Case Study

Challenge: Client was having a problem with counterfeiters reusing their unused printed candy wrappers.
Solution: The installation of two RotoPacs commercial trash compactors in their facility.
Result: Ensured that the valuable wrappers would be destroyed and unusable.

Rich Products – Case Study

Challenge: Wet and Dry waste in production lines. Client found their facility was being overrun with waste from their dough and bakery production lines.
Solutions: A RotoPac garbage compaction equipment is ideal for compacting wet and dry waste all into a KenBay polyethylene bag that is then sealed in a sanitary application. Odor can be greatly diminished with the use of built-in deodorizer.

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.
