When the large oil exploration, drilling, refining and distribution company Saudi Aramco needed industrial waste compactors for their oilrigs they contacted KenBay, the creators of the RotoPac, the original rotary arm waste compactor. Through their American supplier Wilson Supply, Saudi Aramco indicated that the compactors had to not only take up less space than a traditional 30 cubic yard compactor, but also be able to compact the same amount of waste and in less time. On top of this, the compactors had to withstand a punishing saltwater environment. KenBay, which has been marketing their rotary arm compactors in North America for over 15 years, had the ideal solution – the Marine RotoPac.
Wilson Supply, operating out of Texas, US, is a leading worldwide supplier of premium products and services to the oil and gas exploration and production industry, the petrochemical industry and other industrial markets operating through the world.
The KenBay rotary arm compactors have the advantage of being able to continuously compact waste material utilizing 4,400ft/lb of torque at the compaction drum surface, making the RotoPac one of the most cost-effective industrial waste solutions on the market today. KenBay was first-to-market with their rotary arm compactor and have led the field for small footprint (4ftx 5ft), continuous high compacting, industrial waste compactors. Waste can be input into the RotoPac by conveyor, pneumatically, manually or through a chute.
Achieving compaction ratios of greater than six to one, the RotoPac greatly reduces waste disposal costs by up to 80%. Its patented rotary arm technology makes the RotoPac ideal for compacting large volumes of trash, as well as plastic for recycling and cardboard without breaking down boxes. The environmentally friendly RotoPac is able to compact into biodegradable bags as well as reduce collections and space needed in landfills.
Quiet, safe and sanitary, the RotoPac has been the choice of industries as diverse as airframe manufacturing, bakeries, distribution centers, printers, offshore oilrigs, ocean vessels and pharmaceutical operations, as well as the US Army and US Navy.
Made in America, the RotoPac is constructed using the highest quality steel and is currently being offered in several different versions, including the standard RotoPac, the Marine RotoPac, the Plastics RotoPac, the stainless-steel Food Industry RotoPac and the Bin RotoPac Compactor.
KenBay began operations in the United Kingdom over 20 years ago as a waste disposal company. Realizing that over 80% of dumpster space was air, KenBay developed the Rotopac industrial trash compactors to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of industrial waste disposal.
The RotoPac trash compactor was well received in the UK and Ireland before KenBay began operation in the US in 1995. Engineering advancements in the ensuing years have improved and refined the RotoPac trash compactor. The unique design of the RotoPac trash compactor is patented in the US, and KenBay’s manufacturing of compaction equipment systems is ISO 9001 compliant.
KenBay also provides a stainless-steel version of the RotoPac trash compactor as well as marine, food industry, explosion proof, plastics and bin compactors suitable for almost every conceivable waste compacting application.
