SP Industries Introduces CP-1501: High Density, Single Cylinder Stationary Commercial Compactor Serviceable by Front/Rear Load Trucks

SP Industries offers the CP-1501 commercial compactor. With a single cylinder design, this compactor easily handles dry waste and packaging materials. By packing into a front or rear load container, this machine is serviceable by the haulers standard front/rear load route, which eliminates downtime and the need for a second container. The CP-1501 helps lower costs by creating high density, reduced volume material, which requires less space and fewer trips to the landfill or recycling center. Compaction also keeps materials safely undercover and out of sight, preventing waste from becoming windblown debris or a source of pollution. The CP-1501 is ideal for business offices, retail outlets, hotels and universities.

  • Serviceable by Front/Rear Load Trucks
  • Large, clear top opening of 45.6” x 46”
  • Capacity: 1-1/2 cubic yards
  • Volume displacement: 90 cubic yards/hour
  • Cycle time: 50 seconds
  • 39,500 lbs. maximum force
  • Numerous specialty optional equipment and design features

SP Industries was established as a manufacturing facility in 1957, initially operating as Quality Steel Fabrication. As the name implies, the company specialized in custom fabrication, working with such companies as Caterpillar Tractor, GMC, Excello Corp. and Lockheed Manufacturing, among many others. The company also built compactor rams and frames for Spartan Waste-Pac, the original designer, patentee and manufacturer of refuse reduction equipment. After several changes in ownership, the key long-term employees created a new company, SP Industries Inc., that has maintained its position as the leading waste handling equipment manufacturer in the world. The company specializes in waste handling compaction and dumper systems tailored to the specific requirements of diverse industrial and commercial applications.
