The Pack-Master® is ideal for the low-volume user who is looking to reduce their volume on a few drums a month. While not as heavy-duty as the RAM FLAT COMPACTORS, the Pack-Master drum compactors are well suited for easy to compact applications like a paper waste.
Available in three versions, all models are void of any electrical power requirements and are appropriate for use in an explosion-proof environment. For extra protection, one unit is available with non-sparking contact surfaces to eliminate any possibility of spark.
Model 1258: This unit features a manually operated, ratchet-type compaction ram. Capable of creating about 2,500 to 3,000 pounds of compaction pressure, the #1258 has a full stroke length of 39-inches allowing a 4-inch clearance above the drum.
Model 1259: This unit utilizes a compressed air source to create a semi-automatic compaction cycle. At an incoming line pressure of 100-PSI, the compaction pressure is 2,600 pounds and can go as high as 3,900 pounds at 150-PSI. With a stroke reach of 24-inches into the drum (plus a 4-inch above-the-drum clearance), the typical cycle time is about 1-minute regardless of the input air pressure. A 1/4 quick disconnect fitting is provided to make installation easy.
Model 1453: This unit is a spark-resistant version of the Model 1259 described above. Key contact surfaces on the compaction platen and the compactor frame and baseplate are covered with a spark-resistant, aluminum plate.
