Oberg Oil Filter/Drum Crushers


Oberg High Capacity Truck Heavy Equipment, Industrial Oil Filter Crusher

The Oberg Model P-300 provides more crushing force than any competitor, crushing oil filters up to 20" tall, multiple smaller filters simultaneously, and oily shop rags. The large crushing chamber also allows crushing five gallon paint cans into thin wafers. With over 70,000 pounds of crushing force, the P-300 removes the maximum oil possible from used filters! This eliminates the fabric mess and disposal problem typical when cutting filters.

Crushed filters are deposited through a trap door in the rear of the crushing chamber directly into a transport drum.

The P-300 includes legs to house two 55 gallon drums under the machine. One drum can be used for crushed filters and the other for waste oil. A drain located under the crushing chamber allows for waste oil to be plumbed directly to a drum or bulk tank.

All operation is provided by a fully self-contained, electric/hydraulic power unit. This provides consistent crushing force without the need for high volume air supply, condensation filters and lubricators necessary with air units. A push button control activates the system and a built in safety mechanism prevents the machine from operating when the loading door is open.

The space saving design acommodates two drums being positioned under the machine (not included). One drum holds the crushed filters, the other holds the waste oil; alternatively plum waste oil direct to a bulk tank. Trap door allows crushed filters to be deposited directly into the drum without having to be manually removed.

Additional floor space required for the machine is 4 square feet.
