25 January 2013
Skip Units Group member, Randalls Fabrications has supplied two more Simpak 1800 traversing waste compactors for use on the Winsel Civic Amenity and Recycling Centre in Pembrokeshire. The new compactors replace two
The new compactors replace two ageing Simpak 1800 units which had performed well throughout their working life at the site.
One of a comprehensive range of Randalls compactors, the Simpak 1800 has a 1.7m3 charge box and, in the case of the Winsel machines, a 11Kw motor driving up to a nominal 150m3 an hour, at a compaction force of 28,000Kgf.
The compactors in this application have been specially modified with an uprated power pack and hydraulic cylinder in order to give a faster return stroke and so speed cycle time.
The Simpak design features a main control panel together with the main isolator at the rear of the machine.
The traversing version of the compactor is fitted with adjustable clamps for container connection and hydraulic automatic docking by means of a secondary traversing bogie.
