Mark-Costello's compactor options cover
several categories such as container fullness
measuring systems, usage measurement systems,
cycle control systems, power pack options, odor
control systems, and steel options.
"Mark-Costello has clearly been the innovator
in compactor options," says Bill Wilkerson,
Group Sales Vice-president. "In fact, nobody can
touch [Mark-Costello] when it comes to variety
of options. We were the first with the mailbox
style doghouse, the telescoping chute, the
counterbalance hopper lid, barn style doors and
Wilkerson goes on to explain that many of the steel and operational options
are driven by
ANSI and OSHA
standards. However, Mark-Costello is usually ahead of the game with designs
that meet or exceed these standards - even before they are established. All of
Mark-Costello's options are manufactured or assembled in-house.
Each installation has unique requirements. To determine
the steel and operational options for the installation, a thorough analysis of
the application is conducted during the site survey. The site survey is
conducted by the local Mark-Costello representative or Regional Sales Manager.
The survey will answer questions such as: What
ANSI or OSHA standard applies to the application? How will the compactor be
fed? Will it be fed by hand, a cart dumper, or fork lift? Will a security chute
be required? The answers to these and other questions will help the installation
to be used at optimum efficiency to give the customer the best return on
investment. [Click here to see some of

special chutes, hydraulic components, just to mention a few. Mark-Costello
offers design assistance with a full staff of engineers.
