BlokPak 3000 and M-Series
Marathon M-Series Compactors are built tough for the high demands of transfer stations or heavy industrial applications. These compactors can be mounted on a stand to compact directly into the transfer trailer. Extended snouts can also be added to aid in clean break-a-ways. The RAWHIDE™ is a special option that can be applied to the M-Series 1475 Compactor. It has a 48" ram penetration that is especially beneficial for packing out transfer trailers for a clean break-a-way.
The BlokPak® 3000 Transfer System is Marathon’s largest transfer system compactor. It compacts waste against a vertical gate, forming a 10-foot (3-meter) log in the compaction chamber. Each log is then ejected into the transfer trailer. The BlokPak continues this process until maximum payload is achieved. When the trailer is full, the BlokPak can continue to be fed while changing trailers, saving valuable time.
Marathon's BlokPak® 3000 Transfer System is another innovative product for high volume processing of municipal solid waste for transfer to the landfill. The powerful compaction force produces maximum payloads at an affordable price. The system compacts waste against a gate in a compaction chamber forming 8-10 foot long logs. The logs are then ejected into a transfer trailer. After the trailer is full, the waste can continue to be processed waste while changing trailers saving valuable time.
- The BlokPak® 3000 is capable of processing up to 90 tons per hour (continuous). It fits nicely into existing transfer station facilities or for new construction with minimal site preparation.
- The BlokPak® 3000 can be installed in existing over-the-top transfer station facilities. At these facilities, the compactor is fed with a front-end loader off of a tipping floor. It can also be configured for conveyor feed or direct dump applications.
- The refuse is fed into the large 100"L x 86"W x 91" clear top (feed) opening. The packing ram compresses the waste into the compaction chamber against a vertical steel gate. The gate remains closed while the ram is cycling forming a dense log of refuse. When the desired log length has been reached, the vertical gate raises and the ram pushes the log into the transfer trailer.
- Once the trailer has reached maximum payload, the trailer is replaced with an empty trailer. The ram penetrates into the trailer 60" (5 ft.). This is assures a clean break-a-way when the trailer is full. Since the gate is closed, the BlokPak® 3000 can continue to cycle and process waste while the trailer is being replaced to ensure quick turnaround times.
