Hoshizaki Returns to its Tried and Proven RotoPac for Waste Disposal


Hoshizaki's PTC production assembly floor was being clogged by large amounts of cardboard dunnage discarded from receiving components for building their signature ice machines. Removal of the waste materials required fourteen trips daily to move and empty the full collection hoppers to the rear of the facility. The Material Department had been using the KenBay RotoPac Industrial Waste Compactor that they had bought in January of 2001 with no performance or repair issues. Hoshizaki installed another RotoPac and placed it at the source of the waste, right on the PTC production assembly floor. Not only have they reduced the amount of trips necessary to remove the cardboard to one a day, but it has also resulted in annual saving of 50% more than the cost of the RotoPac.

With corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, Georgia and a second manufacturing facility in Griffin, Georgia, Hoshizaki America has among the most automated production facilities in the industry. Using the latest state-of-the-art technology, every Hoshizaki ice machine is run-tested at the factory, and undergoes numerous quality performance tests including ice production capacity and energy efficiency

In purchasing the KenBay Rotary Arm Compactor, Hoshizaki took 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 hazardous bags, 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 high quality steel and is currently being offered in several different versions; including, the standard RotoPac, The Marine RotoPac made of high-grade stainless steel, the Plastics RotoPac, the 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.
