EM-15W

Komar EM-15W auger compactor
EM-15W Processing Specifications
Horsepower 15
Tons / Hr 2
Standard Pallets / Charge 2
Largest Pallet 42″ x 48″
Largest Crate 36″ x 36″ x 60″
Largest Spool 36″
EM-15W Physical Specifications
Footprint (L x W x H) 89.6″ x 72″ x 60.2″
Chamber Size (L x W) 60″ x 59.25″
Weight (lbs) * 10,625
rpm 7.42
torque (ft-lbs) 10,624
Systems that are hand or conveyor fed typically achieve higher compaction levels.   When materials are fed with a tipper or self-dumping hopper, meter feeding is very important to achieving similar levels of compaction.
*The weight includes the entire Auger-Pak™ system with a standard plugin hopper

Bob Langham from Pilkington“Our facility is a large distribution center for automotive glass. The glass arrives in large wooden crates. Before we purchased the auger, we were loading our empty crates into semi-trailers. We averaged about 50 loads a week.  After having the Auger installed, we reduced our loads to five  40 cu. yd. rolloffs per week.  The machine freed-up dock space, improved cleanliness, and there is very little maintenance. It’s an easy machine to run and is fascinating to watch.” – Bob Langham, Senior Packaging Engineer

Series Technology

series tech specifications

1Patented Solid Lube Bearing Support Systems

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 extends service life. The mass and shape of the cast flights increases overall strength and durability, while providing more efficient material delivery to the receiving container. Our patented tapered shaft uniquely distributes forcealong the shaft, minimizing stress on the bearings and maximizing screw life.

4Teeth

All of our wood machines include teeth to help with the initial breakdown of dense material.

5Cycloidal 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 important in giving the compactor the ability to crush through large loads without damage to the drive.

6Worry-Free Chain and Bearing Lubrication Systems

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

7Ratchet Binders 8Container Adapter

The auger compacts directly into a standard roll-off receiving container typically provided by your local hauler, and meets ANSI and OSHA specifications.
