Hapman’s bag compactor saves storage space of used bulk bags, contains dust, and eliminates clean-ups due to spilled material. Bags are compacted down to a 4-cu-ft bundle, and the unit can be used alone or with a bag dump station to minimize employee exposure to dust. Dual pneumatic rams and a sturdy compaction plate compress bags consistently and efficiently. Controls are air-logic operated, making it safe for wash-down and explosion-proof areas. The compactor requires only 3 cfm at 100 psi of compressed air to operate. The system features safety interlocks to provide further protection from operational injuries.
