Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Uses Airport Compactors
With visibility in malls, restaurants, casinos, universities, medical facilities, and high profile airports, it was just a matter of time before Harmony SmartPack Automatic Compactors took off in airports all around the United States.
And, after Harmony’s successful showing at the 2018 AAAE Conference in San Diego, the best kept secret airport compactors is definitely out!
The latest progressive airport to utilize the innovative Harmony SmartPack Automatic Compactor is Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). If you haven’t flown into DFW lately, you haven’t seen the impressive updates to the terminals and the overall improvement to the traveler’s experience!
Harmony Enterprises installed six SmartPacks in three different terminals at DFW, allowing the Texas airport to handle 10x more waste than normal garbage containers and save on hauling costs, labor and trash can liners.
Making The Smart Choice
DFW’s SmartPacks come equipped with Harmony’s state-of-the-art Insite Wireless Monitoring System. This system alerts staff when a compactor needs their attention. It reports when the airport compactors are partially full, full, have their main door left open, do not have signal strength, or are unplugged. This allows for better use of staff time while creating a more pleasant experience for travelers. Harmony’s Insite system has the capability of using IoT Scenes, which allows each customer to have a completely customizable dashboard that can overlay maps, widgets, and photos, showing real-time conditions of any asset on a large scale.
Harmony SmartPack airport compactors are about the same size as regular trash containers except they crush waste to allow more trash to be in each bag. SmartPacks utilize a small operational footprint with a large compaction ratio.
The no touch door and modern, customizable décor make them appealing in any airport setting.
End users, like those at DFW, appreciate the ability to select what size of waste cube is best for that particular area of the airport. The SmartPack comes with a three setting adjustable switch that determines the overall fullness allowed in the waste bag.
Each one of these compactors can hold up to 10x more waste than a traditional garbage can which in turns saves airports money and makes them more sustainable. This efficiency is easily translated into a 70% savings in waste handling expenses. The cost of the purchase is surpassed by an ROI of less than 2 years.
Its easy to understand why airports like DFW choose Harmony. Harmony prides itself on providing the lowest total cost of ownership with a true partnership approach.
