International Compactor Offers High-Performance Trash Compactors

— F r e e Literature A v a i l a b l e— With the world focusing on the clean-up of the atmosphere, rivers and lakes and the implementation/ enforcement of new Annex V-MARPOL 73/78 regulations, the maritime industry now faces a new challenge on how to handle its on-board trash and waste. The MARPOL 73/ 78 regulations prohibit the discharge of plastics, including plastic garbage bags, into the navigational waters of the U.S. or EEZ. The regulations also prohibit the discharge of certain types of garbage in designated waters.

International Compactor, Inc.

(ICI) of Hilton Head Island, S.C., and Houston, Texas, offers a costefficient solution to this problem.

Now available is a complete line of Multi-Pak, all stainless steel marine trash compactors which compact on-board trash into a disposable box or a removable cube. The Multi-Pak machines can compact biodegrada- bles into a leak-proof, disposable, wax-lined box which eliminates the traditional problems of on-board wet waste (edibles excluded). Multi- Pak machines also bale cardboard, paper, and aluminum cans (subject to resale), and can bag plastics and other waste into plastic bags designed for the Multi-Pak equipment.

The boxes, bags, or bales are set aside until they can be properly disposed of or off-loaded.

The Multi-Pak comes in three sizes (MP 40, MP 60 and MP 80) and in three choices of cabinets. All stainless steel (recommended for marine applications), mild steel, and a combination of the two are available. The compaction chamber, however, is always constructed of stainless steel in all Multi-Pak models.

The MP 60 is the most commonly used Multi-Pak trash compactor by the marine and offshore industries because of its durability, weight and size. It can compact a large volume of trash into one 6.2-cubic-foot disposable box or cube. The basic dimensions of the MP 60 are 76-1/4 inches high, 28-1/4 inches wide and 27-1/4 inches deep with a weight of about 850 pounds.

The unit carries a 10-year warranty on its solid-state electrical panel board and limited one-year protection on parts and labor.

The company reports ICI's Multi- Pak units are currently being used throughout the maritime industry.

Some of the users include cruise ships, steamships, and ore/bulk container carriers.
