BlokPak® 3000 Producing Maximum Loads in Idaho
3000 in Idaho was installed in an existing over-the-top transfer station
Mark-Costello Equipment Company's BlokPak 3000 Transfer Compactor has
been installed at a transfer station in Blackfoot, Idaho. This transfer
station, operated by Idaho Waste Systems, was originally built to function
in the traditional transfer station manner with a front loader pushing the
waste into over-the-top transfer trailers. The refuse then would be tamped
using a backhoe.
The BlokPak 3000, now running at the
site, works much like a precrusher. Municipal
solid waste is pushed from the collection floor
into a charge chamber and compacted into a
compaction chamber against a vertical gate. The
machine continues to cycle building a dense
log of refuse in the compaction chamber. When
the designated log size is complete, the gate is
raised and compaction ram pushes the log of
trash into the transfer trailer.
Fred Perez, of Idaho Solid Waste is very
pleased with the BlokPak's performance. "We have
been able to reach our maximum truckloads in a
very short time," said Perez. "This is important
since we haul the waste more than 250 miles to
the landfill in Mountain Home, Idaho. We are
able to get 34 tons of waste in the truck to
achieve our load limits."
8 ft. bales of refuse are pushed into the trailer with the ram extending well
into the trailer. At the Idaho site, 3 to 4 bales produce the maximum load
desired. After the last bale is pushed into the trailer, the gate closes
allowing the compaction process to continue. It also makes for a clean
Mark-Costello's distributor, Solid Waste
Systems out of Spokane, Washington, sold and
installed the BlokPak 3000. The unit is
more than 53 ft. long and features a 100" L x
80" W x 82" D charge chamber. It has a 100 hp
motor and computerized control panel that allows
for manual and automatic operation.
