Transfer stations provide manufacturing/processing facilities and municipal waste handling centers a more compact, cost effective and sanitary method to handle refuse and recyclable materials. Systems can incorporate a loading method and compactor, both of which are tailored to the specific needs of the facility to maximize efficiency and safety. All transfer station systems are designed to provide maximum density, optimized operational and transport efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. A wide range of machine sizes can accommodate volume throughputs from mini collection sites for small manufacturers to large-scale regional trash collection centers — from 100 to 740 cu.yds/hr and load weights from 45 to 335 tons/hr. SP Industries transfer stations are tailored to the environmental and installation requirements of each specific application. Loading methods, including dumpers, front-end loader platforms, conveyor systems, as well as other tailored options such as hoppers, gates, chutes, etc., are outfitted as warranted. The compactor is sized for the type(s) of material being handled, volume throughput and cycle rate, and other variables specific to the application. SP Industries offers a variety of roll-off container designs and sizes, or materials can be loaded directly into semitrailers as depicted below. ABOUT SP INDUSTRIES SP Industries was established as a manufacturing facility in 1957, initially operating as Quality Steel Fabrication. As the name implies, the company specialized in custom fabrication, working with such companies as Caterpillar Tractor, GMC, Excello Corp. and Lockheed Manufacturing, among many others. The company also built compactor rams and frames for Spartan Waste-Pac, the original designer, patentee and manufacturer of refuse reduction equipment. After several changes in ownership, the key long-term employees created a new company, SP Industries Inc., that has maintained its position as the leading waste handling equipment manufacturer in the USA. The company specializes in waste handling compaction and dumper systems tailored to the specific requirements of diverse industral and commercial applications.
