EVAC UWC 50 Compactor

The UWC 50 is an electromechanical compactor in stainless steel AISI 316 for dry solid waste, designed by Evac for demanding marine and offshore conditions.

The compactor has unique “Double-stroke” and “Stay-n-Hold” functions for increased compaction rates. The unit compacts all types of garbage and is easily operated from the front. Due to the electromechanical drive, the machine offers silent operation and there is no need for any arrangement to provide separate drainage in case of hydraulic leakage. The electromechanical drive offers long durability with no deterioration over time.

The container in AISI 316 is lined with a Big Bag which can be sealed and is easy to transport. Additional containers give the possibility of segregation of several waste fractions. The unit reduces the volume of ship generated garbage by up to 80% depending on fraction.

The UWC 50 is preferably combined with the offshore shredder UOS 5050 prior to compaction. This will increase compaction even further.

 The UWC 50 has been examined and tested by DNV/GL Maritime for the purpose of marine and offshore outdoor open deck installations (IP66).
