Komar Auger-Pak™ EM-General Series

  • Shreds and compacts in one machine
  • Substantially reduces transportation costs
  • Eliminates the need for dangerous manual breakdown
  • Safely handles tramp metal such as nails and bolts
The Komar auger has increased daily soft trash, wood pallets, and general trash efficiency by 30%, and 40% with furniture. I love to give shock and awe tours to show off the Auger-Pak™. – Bob Kagle, Director of Retail Logistics Goodwill SWPA

“Our facility is a 110,000-sq.ft. Operations Center for Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania. We get between 1.2 to 1.5 million pounds of material a day, and tonnage increases significantly during the summer. The Komar Auger has increased daily soft trash, wood pallets, and general trash efficiency by 30%, and 40% with furniture. I love to give shock and awe tours to show off the Auger-Pak™, which compacts 8.5 to 9 tons into each payload.”  – Bob Kagle, Director of Retail Logistics

Series Technology

series tech specifications

1Patented Solid Lube Bearing Support System

Allows for the use of the biggest and most powerful auger screws in the industry, resulting in maximum compaction force.

2Cast Steel Flights 3Tapered Solid Alloy Steel Shaft

Using the highest quality components to construct our auger screws provides extended service life. The density and shape of the cast flights increases strength and durability, as well as more efficient material delivery to the receiving container. The patented tapered shaft uniquely distributes forces, which maximizes bearing and shaft life.

4Cycloidal Drive with 500% Shock Load

Don’t judge a drive strictly by the motor’s horsepower, especially when you plan to process heavy industrial materials. A high shock load rating is vital in giving the compactor the ability to crunch through large loads, as it can temporarily exchange speed for additional force.

5Worry-Free Chain and Bearing Lubrication System

The engineered, automatically lubricated chain, coupled with the self-lubricating bearing system cuts down on routine maintenance.

6Container Hooks 7Container Adaptor

The auger compacts directly into the hauling container. This feature substantially cuts down on the labor expenses as it eliminates the need for double and triple material handling.

Compare our technology:

+ Auger-Pak™ vs. Ram Compactor

1.) More efficient processing
2.) Fewer material jams
3.) Compacts two to four times tonnage into each receiving container.
4.) Half the power consumption
5.) Smaller footprint
6.) Easier to maintain

+ Auger-Pak™ vs. Auto-Tie Baler

1.) More efficient processing
2.) Fewer material jams
3.) No auto-tie system. No baling wire to buy and store.
4.) Eliminates the double and triple material handling inherent in moving bales.
6.) Sits outside of the facility and compacts directly in the receiving container – no bales to store
7.) A lot of valuable floor space is given back to your primary business operations.
8.) Only requires one part-time operator to run and maintain.
