Mark-Costello's RJ-325 Commercial Stationary Compactor

[ Specifications | Steel & Operational Options ]

Heavy Commercial Compactor...

Mark-Costello's RamJet RJ-325 is a real work horse! Its proven capability assures top performance in heavy commercial and industrial applications. The RJ-325 is unique to other compactors in its class, providing a large 60"W x 67 1/2"L clear top opening and a 33" deep charge box ­ a feature greatly appreciated at peak loading times or when compacting bulky items!

Superior Engineering...

The RJ-325 is stress engineered for durability. That means the strength is where it belongs ­ like the 1/2" charge box floor reinforced with seven heavy duty steel channels, 1/2" steel plate ram face backed with 10" structural channels and extra rugged reinforced sides.

Added Value Features
Allen-Bradley Motor Starter
TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor
Quick Release Motor Mount for easy servicing and maintenance
TRICON Fullness Assurance System. This time shifting device eliminates all but one limit switch. It also produces better compaction ratios by making the ram dwell against the trash reducing the "memory" and springback. TRICON offers better cold weather performance and extends the life of the machine.

Ram Guide System

Ram Guide SystemThe packing ram is supported by specially formulated cast iron shoes which ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending its life and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.

Side-Mount Power Unit

Mark-Costello's Side-Mounted Power Unit, the first in the industry, offers the convenience and ease-of-maintenance of a remote power pack with the space savings of an integrated power pack. This new configuration eliminates ALL electrical components inside the compactor.

The Pump on Mark-Costello's high performance Side-Mounted Power Unit is secured to a "C" flange TEFC motor with a machined bracket that guarantees coupling alignment. The Limit Switch and all other parts of the power unit are easily accessible for ease-of-maintenance. The Reset Button for the Motor Starter is also located on the outside which eliminates entry into the control box.

Advanced Control System

The RJ-325 features an advanced, simplified control system with 2 button operation. It is key-operated and fully automatic. The heavy duty push button controls are contained in a weatherproof NEMA 13 enclosure. Connected to the power pack with 13' of sealtite, the controls can be located for operator convenience.
