When manufacturing processes require content input from a large numbers of drums or barrels, a drum crusher is a handy piece of equipment which assists in reducing the size of an empty drum for easier storage and disposal of empty drums and barrels. Used, empty drums take up valuable space in the work area and using a barrel crusher after the drum is dispensed reduces its volume substantially making it much easier to store and transport for recycling. The operation of a 55 gallon drum crusher is simple and encompasses loading the drum into the drum crusher's chamber, closing the door, and pressing the button to start the crushing process which takes about 25 seconds. Vestil drum crushers take the effort out of the process while ensuring maximum worker safety. Standard duty cycle crushers are available in three voltages under model numbers: Vestil HDC-905-IDC 460v, Vestil HDC-905-IDC 230V and Vestil HDC-905-IDC 208V
Another use for empty drums is to store trash or other materials in them which often necessitates the need to compact the contents in order to maximize storage space. In these situations a drum compactor to compact the contents of a drum or barrel is invaluable. Drum compactors can compress the contents of drums quickly. A great combination solution, the drum crusher compactor, offers both drum crushing and drum compacting in one unit. The Vestil HDC-905-IDC 460v, Vestil HDC-905-IDC 230V, and Vestil HDC-905-IDC 208V are all drum crusher compactors offering this useful dual functionality.
