Meiko is promising to dramatically cut the cost of food waste collection while improving kitchen efficiency with its latest disposal system.
The Disperator GTS-Series Food Waste Disposal, which authorised Meiko dealers can sell fully installed for less than £40,000, is aimed at high volume kitchens.
It consists of the GTS food waste processor and associated food waste storage tank, inter-connecting pipework and a modular secure GRP housing for the tank. Meiko believes it can be installed in under three days.
“The Disperator GTS-System will dramatically cut the cost of food waste collection while also improving efficiency in the kitchen and saving on labour,” says Bill Downie, Managing Director, Meiko UK.
“The amount of space required for the vacuum tank is minimal – about the same as the average domestic single garage – which means it will fit anywhere you can park a car – and that makes the Disperator GTS-System a practical solution for many caterers with high volumes of food waste and/or limited waste storage facilities,” Downie added.
Each GTS-System inlet will handle up to 300lt of food waste per day, which is converted into a liquid slurry that can be converted into renewable energy, biogas or an earth enhancing fertiliser, potentially earning the caterer Carbon Trading Credits.
