KANSAS CITY, MO -- In an effort to make aluminum can recycling easier for shops, garages, and home owners, EZ LIfe LLC has created the EZ Power Crusher:AIR. This new powered crusher uses compressed air to flatten a standard 12oz. beverage can.
Though some people may crush a can by hand, the EZ Power Crusher:AIR uses 60psi to crush an aluminum can and does so in under one second. EZ Life feels that there is a market for powered aluminum can crushers - products that sit somewhere between the large industrial crushers and the hand cranked crushers.
Safety was a primary factor considered when designing the crusher. "We used an all-steel enclosure to totally encapsulate the can and crushing ram to ensure the safety of the user, says Larry Vogel, designer of the EZ Power Crusher:AIR. "You can't activate the crushing ram without closing the safety door which keeps the user's fingers from being pinched or crushed." In addition, speed and convenience were driving factors. Vogel adds, "Air power is strong, fast, and easy to use. In addition, the crushed can drops right into the recycling bin leaving no mess on hands, walls, or the floor."
The EZ Power Crusher:AIR is available for sale online at the company store (www.ezpowerCrusher.com) and sells for $279.99. The company has also completed an electric powered prototype that should be available for sale in the first quarter of 2010.
