Drum Crusher from Ag-mac creates space at Kerax Manufacturing Plant

A PROBLEM  WITH Limited Space

Mounting numbers of empty 205-litre drums were accumulating in the yard at our Redditch manufacturing plant: even when palletised and stacked, 400 drums occupied more than 400 square feet of valuable space.


Having investigated various ways to save space MD Chris Bradley contacted Agritel to enquire about a drum crusher.

When I phoned they seemed to know what they were talking about; they quoted me a price to buy a drum crusher and told me that if I wasn’t totally happy with the machine they’d take it back and refund my money! I’m pleased to say that the machine does exactly what they said it would.”

Kerax took delivery of the Ag-mac DC10 Drum Crusher in December and it has already made a huge difference. Operative Steve Selby commented: “Installing Agritel’s Drum Crusher has allowed us to clear the backlog and we can now store the same number of barrels in only 75 square feet!”

The Ag-mac DC10 crushes 205-litre (45 gallon) drums down to approximately one-sixth of their original height. Drums are compressed neatly within their original footprint, so that they can be easily – and safely – stacked or palletised ready for disposal.
