The Island system is available in two models with different capacities: Island 7 (7.5 cu.m.) and Island 15 (15 cu.m.). 'Island' is designed for the collection and disposal of Solid Urban Waste and may be used with rear-loading compactors; this system is ideal for non-urban and urban areas such as residential areas or high-density urban centres. Thanks to its external free-standing structure, ISLAND requires no other brick or reinforced concrete structures. The tank contains all the components of the “Island” system making it a unique sturdy sheet plate structure with strengthened attachment points for the hydraulic lifting system. The upper edge is fitted with a steel tubing with neoprene gasket that acts as a sealed coupling with the covering platform. The internal AISI 304 skip is easy to remove for washing and disinfection purposes. The covering of the tank is constructed with the top of the skin in non-slip sheet plate stiffened with steel profiles.
How it works
The user presses the button to open the loading tower automatically. After a preset time the tower closes automatically dropping the garbage bag into the skip. The mobile wall in the skips is used for unloading but also moves to the front of the skip after a preset number of garbage disposal operations and then returns to its original position. This movement is carried out automatically by the skip so that the garbage bags are distributed uniformly inside the skip maximising the capacity but without breaking the bags to avoid spilling of the compacted waste.
A photocell detects the garbage level in the skip and stops the system when a preset level is reached; in this case the text “skip full” is displayed.
The operator uses the remote control to place the skip at a preset height and the mobile wall empties the skip by means of a hydraulic system: the mobile wall pushes the garbage to the front which opens to form a chute through which the waste slides into the rear-loading compactor.
