Transfer system

Transfer system

The BlokPak 3000 Transfer system is designed to offer maximum payloads at lower cost. The system ram compacts waste against a retractable gate in a compaction chamber, forming ten-foot logs. The ram dwells against the formed log. The gate is then raised, the ram penetrates five feet into the trailer and the logs are ejected for transfer. The gate is lowered and the ram repeats compaction. After the trailer is full, waste can continue to be processed while changing trailers. Units fit into existing transfer stations with an over-the-top feed system.
