Emerson, a Wisconsin-based foodservice equipment manufacturer, is bidding to divert food waste from landfills and reduce hauling costs with its InSinkErator pulper.
The InSinkErator Tri-Cycle is said to reduce food waste volume by up to 90% and mass by up to 75% using a 10 HP, with its designed grinder and powerful dewatering centrifuge.
Its compact design processes 50 lbs (23 kg) of food waste per minute and can be used in or out of the kitchen.
The system requires only electrical and plumbing hook-ups and is suitable for operators participating in compost programs and customers with limited pre-hauling storage.
Tri-Cycle features a digital user interface panel that displays operational prompts and system status throughout its working cycle.
The system includes a built-in automatic cleaning cycle, as well as a
95-second deep cleaning and end-of-shift cleaning process which takes
approximately 3.5 minutes.
The Tri-Cycle package includes: processing table, backsplash with rubber gasket and fasteners, overhead sprayer and hardware, removable baffle, discharge bin chute and two discharge bins.
Emerson will be available to discuss the pulper at booth 4100 at the NAFEM Show.
