McClain Octamag 275, Specifications
McClain Industries, Industrial Refuse Compactors


Click to see Larger Image. The McClain Octamag 275 Portable Compactor features a modern ram design that provides higher compaction ratios than a comparably sized compactor. It is a self contained, portable unit, with the compactor and receiver container welded together on a common steel floor and chassis. This unitized, or integrated type of construction prevents any leakage of liquids, or oozing of soft garbage, that may be mixed in with the trash. Any liquids, that seep from the trash during compaction, are trapped in an enclosed "bilge space" within the integrated floor, capable of trapping a large amount of fluid. These fluids are then discharged along with the trash, when the unit is dumped at the disposal site. This makes for a nice clean and sanitary refuse disposal system. These units are very popular in the food industry, hotels, resorts, golf courses, shopping centers, and grocery stores, etc.

If odors emanating from the trash are a problem, the compactor can be fitted with an optional, fully enclosed hopper extension, and deodorizing unit. The deodorizing unit operates by neutralizing odors with an electronic "ionization" type process, which we have found to be more effective than chemical spray systems. These units run solely on electricity and therefore need no chemicals.

McClain Compactors are noted for their strength, reliability, quality construction from prime steel, heavy duty hydraulic components, and of course safety in operation.
The McClain DR100 Hi-Tech Control Panel is included, featuring solid state electrical and hydraulic controls, and known as the most reliable in the industry.
