When a hospital wants to recycle cardboard, it must be processed separately from the general waste stream.  For cardboard recycling, Komar suggests the Komar Auger-Pak General Series with a cart tipper.

  • More efficient processing, and fewer material jams than a ram compactor
  • Small machine footprint fits into tight quarters
  • Low maintenance, only requires one part-time operator
  • Optional plug-in dock-enclosure for all-weather ease of use

Red Bag Waste

Komar offers a full range of equipment to process medical waste utilizing the latest shredding and sterilization technologies. Coupling one of Komar’s low speed, high torque, quad shaft shear shredders with an autoclave sterilization system is a proven, safe and economical solution for the on-site processing of medical waste.

quad-shaft shredder

Komar’s quad shaft shear shredders offer versatility in processing medical waste by utilizing removable sizing screens. Depending on desired output, sizing screens can be selected to provide uniform piece size from 3/4″ to 4″. Shredders can easily handle bagged waste, sharps containers, and batches from autoclave carts. A de-jamming circuit is included to prevent damage from any stray metal waste such as hip joints and surgical tools.

autoclave sterilization unit

Komar’s autoclave sterilization unit offers the following features: (1) An integrated PLC that monitors and controls the sterilizer cycle, which ensures 100% destruction of bacteria. (2) An ASME pressure rated vessel with integral waste tracks for easy loading. (3) A manual safety door lock bar that is interlinked to the sterilizer controls, which ensures that the door mechanism is locked before pressurization of the vessel. (4) Pneumatically actuated breech lock door and inflatable door seal. (5) A pneumatic safety lock pin that is energized by the sterilizer controller to prevent door opening while the unit is pressurized. (6) A single channel circular temperature chart recorder to provide permanent documentation of each batch cycle.
