High-Performance Trash Compactors —Free Literature Available—

With the world focusing on the clean-up of the atmosphere, rivers and lakes and the implementation/ enforcement of new Annex V-MAR-

POL 73/78 regulations, the mari- time industry now faces a new chal- lenge on how to handle its on-board trash and waste. The MARPOL 73/ 78 regulations prohibit the dis- charge of plastics, including plastic garbage bags, into the navigational waters of the U.S. or EEZ. The regu- lations also prohibit the discharge of certain types of garbage in desig- nated waters.

Multi-

Pak machines also bale cardboard, paper, and aluminum cans (subject to resale), and can bag plastics and other waste into plastic bags de- signed for the Multi-Pak equip- ment. 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 mod- els.

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 dis- posable box or cube. The basic di- mensions 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 warran- ty on its solid-state electrical panel board and limited one-year protec- tion 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 con- tainer carriers.
