55LR Drum Compactor


55LR Drum Compactor

For lightweight waste compaction into 55-gallon drums that demands medium-duty construction.

55LR Drum CompactorWhile the Model 55LR produces less force than any other RAM FLAT at 20,000 pounds, this 55-gallon drum compactor is still a medium-duty machine with similar features to the heavier 55ER.   This model is perfect for laboratories that have large volumes of lightweight materials like paper and plastic.   The stainless steel compaction head makes it ideal for decontamination of low-level radioactive waste or chemical waste that would take paint off of carbon steel.

  • 20,000 lbs. hydraulic force for inside drum compaction
  • Ideal for handling Low-Level radioactive waste
  • 55LR has large drum clearance for material overfill
  • Exhaust Collar for chamber ventilation
  • 3.25″ NFPA cylinder with 2″chrome rod
  • .179 Steel Plate Crushing Chamber with 1″ thick base plate
  • .5″ Stainless Steel Compaction Head with tapered top cone
  • Regenerative Hydraulic Circuit for fast cycle
