Model CTI 50 Compactor Series safely compacts dry, solid or saturated hazardous materials and low-level radioactive waste to provide efficient, space-saving storage, reduced hazardous waste disposal fees and minimal hazardous material drum disposal costs.
NEMA 4 electrical system
Zero Tolerance Compaction Chamber
The Zero Tolerance Compaction Chamber, and the Drum Support Anvil perfectly center the drum while providing lateral support to minimize drum distortion. (Distorted drums can become leaking drums, making disposal more costly.) An internal Drum Containment Ring prevents the drum from being picked up by the Platen on the return stroke, avoiding drum lift and potential foot injury.
A timed, sustained push at full pressure destroys the “memory” (spring-back) of the waste, maximizing compaction ratios and your savings. Timer is user adjustable for varying waste types.
Quick Load Door
Allows for convenient and easily loading. Minimizes operator’s exposure to waste.
60,000 lbs. of Compaction Force
Allows excellent waste compaction in conjunction with the “Continuous-Push” timer in the Zero Tolerance Compaction Chamber.
Two-Stage Hydraulic System
Energy-efficient, two-stage 7:1 gear pump requires less oil and operates cooler, prolonging the life of the motor, pump, seals and hoses. A specially designed, smaller oil reservoir contains 70% less than competitive products- less potentially contaminated oil to dispose of during periodic maintenance.
Precision Cylinder and Platen System
Hydraulic cylinder is 6' bore with a 4' rod. The compacting Platen is a 2' thick chromed steel, supported by two (2) 2' diameter chromed steel guide rods. These Rods provide even loading and prevent damage to the cylinder seals and Platen. A 1/8' clearance between Platen and drum is designed to minimize the waste rising above the platen.
NEMA 1 Enclosed Electrical System
The CTI 50 Series uses UL listed components, including an OSHA required lockout-style emergency disconnect, and a NEMA I enclosure with motor starter. Connects to many power sources (230/460V, 60Hz, 3ø).
Easy Operator Controls
With the Power Disconnect Switch On and Quick Load Door securely latched, the operator depresses the Run switch. The “Continuous-Push” Timer stops compaction after the predetermined interval, returning Platen to the start position. Also includes a manual Ram Up/Down switch.
Operator Safety Interlocks
Compactor will not operate if either Quick Load or drum door is open or slightly ajar. A Main Power Disconnect switch is readily available.
Motor Starter and Disconnect Included
No need to buy a separate and costly motor starter and disconnect.
NEMA 4 (Weather Proof) or NEMA 7 (Explosion Proof Components)
Equipped with components to meet the codes governing equipment used in wet and dusty environments or hazardous atmospheres (Class I Division I Group D).
Fire Extinguishing Fittings
Equipped with fittings to allow for hook-up to the customersupplied dry chemical fire extinguishing system. An electric heat detection circuit activates the user’s fire system.
HEPA Filtration System
This nuclear grade filtration system, operated manually, removes particles to 0.3 microns with 99.97% efficiency. Internal flow switches disable operation if the filter is blocked.
VOC/Carbon Filtration System
If Volatile Organic Compounds are present in the your waste, this option absorbs them. Operated manually. Internal flow switches disables operation if this system is blocked.
HEPA and Carbon Filtration System Combination
This filtration option removes both dangerous vapors and particles. Operated manually. Internal flow switches disable operation if this filter combination is blocked.
NEMA 4 or NEMA 7 Liquid Removal System
These unique options allow safe and efficient removal of nonexplosive or explosive liquids during compaction, for separate disposal or recycling. A powerful, chemical resistant pump can efficiently remove over 14 gallons of liquid waste per minute. Great for filters, rags soaked with solvent, containers with liquid residue, etc.
85,000 lbs. Of Compaction Force
Allows superior waste compaction, while minimizing drum distortion.
Drum Crushing Package
Includes custom hydraulics and a crushing insert that will crush drums to approximately 4 inches. Switching from in-drum compacting to drum crushing is easy and safe, and takes only seconds.
Stainless Steel Platen and Stainless Steel Chamber
The stainless steel components (sold separately) allow for easy cleanup and decontamination. Recommended for corrosive or radioactive applications.
Inert Gas Purge for Fire Prevention
Equipped with fittings and valves allowing hook-up to the customer’s inert gas supply. The drum chamber is manually flooded (NEMA 7 applications) or automatically flooded (NEMA 4 applications) prior to and during compaction.
Drum Lift Cart
The drum lift cart easily allows removal of drums weighing up
to 1000 lbs. It features:
