Marathon Equipment has released a new, updated compactor that it promises will be a longer-lasting solution for foodservice and other industries.
The new compactor is made for businesses that have a high volume of organic waste, with the company citing large foodservice operations, grocery stores, hospitals, big box stores and schools in particular.
Marathon describes the new RJ-250SC2 as a state-of-the-art raised cylinder, self-contained compactor.
It is designed to simplify maintenance procedures, reducing the need for maintenance and saving owners money over the lifespan of the unit.
“We are very excited about the SC2 as it addresses head-on the maintenance issues customers have been facing since the creation of the self-contained concept. Instead of the traditional crisscross cylinder head design, we engineered a straight-cylinder design and then elevated the cylinders an additional foot,” said industry veteran, James Robbins.
He continued: “This change raises the cylinders out of the liquid waste, making clean out substantially easier. Cylinder access is also improved, as the cylinders are no longer contained behind the packer head and instead are mounted outside of the box in a fabricated sleeve.”
Marathon is a part of Dover and Environmental Solutions Group, and was founded in 1968. It offers compacting and recycling solutions for a number of industries.
