SPH-XWM Self-Contained Compactor


The SPH-XWM is a self-contained or “portable” compactor that is specifically designed for waste streams that contain a large percentage of wet waste. The self-contained compactor will contain all of the waste stream liquids in the unitized container and prevent/eliminate seepage. Each compactor is manufactured with fully welded seams, contains a 4″ liquid sump area and is equipped with a dump door that contains a full perimeter flexible “T-seal”. This seal prevents any migration of liquids between the container door frame and the door itself. This model is available in a wide range of capacities from 15 to 38 cubic yards and can be customized to fit our clients individual needs. This model has one unique advantage over the standard SPH-X compactor. The clear top or “charge opening” is significantly larger 46″ x 70″ than the SPH-X (42″ x 60″); which enables it to handle more waste per ram cycle as well as larger individual waste items within the waste stream itself.
