TFC Corporation Offers Full Line Of Trash Compactors To Meet New Annex V/MARPOL Rules
—Free Literature O f f e r e d— With worldwide attention on cleaning up the marine industry environment because of the new Annex V-MARPOL 73/78 regulations, Pollution Packer marine trash compactors from TFC Corporation offer a cost effective solution that is both clean and safe to handle all types of waste aboard the vessels and rigs at sea.
TFC Corporation, Bloomington, Minn., offers a complete line of marine trash compactors to handle all types of onboard waste. The firm offers four models to meet the needs of the world shipping and offshore oil industry marketplace.
The company's best selling Fox Pollution Packer is the high-volume model 2400. The versatile and reliable unit has a 1/2-hp, two-stage hydraulic motor/pump unit which permits compaction forces up to 14,000 pounds at low amperage to allow operation on a 110 VAC, 60 Hz, 20 amp circuit. This unit requires only 10 percent of the kilowatt hours of 5 hp compactors with similar compaction forces.
The machine, which has a height of a little over 76 inches, width of 28 inches and depth of about 30 inches, performs four important functions: it cubes all types of waste in heavyduty reusable plastic cubes (useful for easy handling of soggy or wet waste); it bales paper, cardboard and other baleable wastes; it bags lightweight mixed waste and refuse in heavy duty 4-mil plastic bags; and it boxes wastes such as animal, vegetable, surgical, etc., in polyvinyl waxed-lined cartons.
The model 2400 Fox Pollution Packer offers a number of excellent safety features. For example, the unit will not operate unless the key is inserted in the key switch and turned in the "on" position. Additionally, the Pollution Packer will stop operating if the loading or service door is opened during the compaction cycle. The model 2400 also features a patented pressure-release service door handle camlock which relieves pressure build-up in the compaction chamber prior to the service door being opened.
Annex V of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution by Ships, 1973, as modified by the 1978 Protocol (MARPOL 73/78) is the third phase of the world maritime community's efforts to prevent the pollution of the ocean by ships. Annex V, which became enforceable January 1,1989, prohibits the dumping of plastics as sea and severely restricts the ability of vessels to dump other types of shipgenerated garbage both at sea and in the navigable waters of the U.S.
Annex V applies to all vessels, from the smallest recreational craft to the largest oceangoing commercial ships.
Fox Pollution Packers are already in use aboard U.S. Navy and Coast Guard vessels, as well as offshore oil rigs, tankers and cruise ships.
American United Marine Corporation, Saugus, Mass., are the U.S.
agents for Fox Pollution Packers.
