Acme Smoked Fish Lands the KenBay RotoPac Compactor

Acme Smoked Fish of Brooklyn, NY is one of the most popular smoked fish brands in North America, and with good reason. Acme has been family owned and operated for four generations, so in addition to having unmatched experience, their family's reputation rests on every piece of smoked fish that leaves their New York Smokehouse. So they make sure their smoked fish products are ones you'll be proud to serve your family and friends again and again.

Like their products, Acme wanted only in the highest quality equipment in their smokehouse. So when they recently needed a rotary arm compactor to reduce the volume of plastic wrap waste at their location, they chose the original rotary arm compactor, the KenBay RotoPac because of its small footprint and high compaction ability. The small footprint allows the compactor to sit inside near where the waste is produced saving time and labor getting it compacted. And it is easy to use. With the high compaction rate they are able to get up to 1,200 lbs of wet plastic into a 44" cube in a bag for convenient transport and reduced hauling costs.

Rotary Arm Compactors have the advantage of being able to continuously compact waste material utilizing 4,400 ft-lbs of torque at the compaction drum surface, making the RotoPac one of the most cost effective industrial waste solutions on the market today. KenBay was first-to-market with their rotary arm compactor and have led the field for small footprint (4'x 5'), continuous high compacting, industrial waste compactors. Waste can be input into the RotoPac by conveyor, pneumatically, manually or through a chute.

Achieving compaction ratios of greater than 6 to 1, the RotoPac greatly reduces waste disposal costs by up to 80%. Its patented rotary arm technology makes the RotoPac ideal for compacting large volumes of trash, as well as plastic for recycling and cardboard without breaking down boxes. The environmentally friendly RotoPac is able to compact into biodegradable bags as well as reduce collections and space needed in landfills.

Quiet, safe and sanitary, the RotoPac has been the choice of industries as diverse as airframe manufacturing, bakeries, distribution centers, printers, offshore oilrigs, ocean vessels and pharmaceutical operations, as well as the US Army and US Navy.

Made in America, the RotoPac is constructed using the highest quality stainless steel and is currently being offered in several different versions; including, the standard RotoPac, The Marine RotoPac, the Plastics RotoPac, the stainless steel Food Industry RotoPac and the Bin RotoPac Compactor.

KenBay began operations in the United Kingdom over 20 years ago as a waste disposal company. Realizing that over 80% of dumpster space was air, KenBay developed the Rotopac industrial trash compactors to increase the efficiency and cost effectiveness of industrial waste disposal.

The RotoPac trash compactor was well received in the UK and Ireland before KenBay began operation in the US in 1995. Engineering advancements in the ensuing years have improved and refined the RotoPac trash compactor. The unique design of the RotoPac trash compactor is patented in the US, and KenBay's manufacturing of compaction equipment systems is ISO 9001 compliant.

KenBay also provides a stainless steel version of the RotoPac trash compactor as well as a marine, food industry, explosion proof, plastics, and bin compactors suitable for almost every conceivable waste compacting application.
