‘Significant’ savings with SP Industries’ heavy-duty compactor

United States – SP Industries has introduced a new heavy-duty industrial compactor, dubbed the CP-2202-CHIP. Suitable for metal chip and turnings compaction, this turnkey system is said to be ideal for both manufacturers and large-scale machine shops that generate significant volumes of scrap metal turnings, chips or industrial waste.

The dual-cylinder design produces 85 000 lb of force to create a 4:1 compaction ratio on mild steel turnings, says SP Industries. ′This effectively reduces the volume of four full 40-cubic-yard containers into one,′ it notes. Depending on the type of scrap metal being processed, each load can be filled to the legal payload limit for maximum transportation cost-efficiency, it adds.

A ′unique′ feature of the machine is claimed to be its ability to efficiently reclaim cutting fluids, coolants and oils from the scrap turnings and chip materials. Fluid is removed from both the compaction chamber and the compaction container and is pumped into a single, sealed collection tank for subsequent pumping into the customer′s recycling system or holding tank.

′Businesses that process scrap metal turnings with the CP-2202-CHIP benefit from significant cash savings by recycling these fluids,′ SP Industries points out. The new compactor can be tailored to specific environmental and installation requirements, including appropriate loading platform, hopper, gate, chutes and access panels.
