SP Industries Inc. Introduces Hydraulic-Free Compactors
HOPKINS, MICH.-- SP Industries, Inc. has introduced the first line of industrial, electro-mechanical compactors completely absent of hydraulic fluid. These environmentally-friendly, ground breaking units utilize a solid steel screw shaft powered by an electric motor that pushes the ram through the compaction chamber.
This design eliminates the potential for hydraulic fluid spills in and around customer facilities providing contamination-free operation in all applications and for all industries. The new EM Series incorporates a 24-volt control system that allows for safer operation and a built-in grease system automatically lubricates the shaft. These units free up floor space as well by removing the need for bulky power units used with traditional compactors, while boasting multi-cycle programming and adjustable ram force pressure settings. Finally, the motor remains protected by a soft-start system and full-load indicator to prevent surges or overamping.
As with all SP equipment, the EM Series is completely customizable and can be integrated into almost any system they manufacture including their specialty cart dumpers, chutes, and decks. You can find a full specification sheet detailing this new line of compactors at bestcompactors.com/documents/EM_series.pdf or by contacting an SP representative at 800-592-5959.
