COMMERCIAL FOOD WASTE DEWATERING SYSTEMS
First introduced by Tidy Planet to the UK in 2009, Dehydra Food Waste Dewaterers are utilised across the globe to help sites reduce the volume by up to 80% and weight by 50%.
From hotel kitchens and universities to prisons, oil and gas workers’ canteens, hospitals and restaurants, our commercial and industrial-scale food waste minimisation systems help organisations to reduce their food waste volumes at source – in a safe and compliant way.
With a range of models to suit all requirements – food waste quantities and spacial restrictions – all establishments can easily reduce the volume and weight of their organic waste, significantly reducing their off-site collection and disposal costs.
BUT HOW DO THEY WORK?
These kitchen or waste area-based workstations can process up to 700kgs of food waste per hour and are robust and easy to operate.
Food waste is fed into the hopper, where it enters a macerator to first be shredded. Then passes through a centrifuge where water is removed, and the resulting solids are significantly reduced in volume and weight.
The equipment is used across the globe on board offshore marine vessels, in college and university kitchens, hospitals and hotels and remote island resorts.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Very simply, by reducing the weight and volume of food waste, this not only drastically cuts down off-site collection and disposal costs but reduces the amount of space needed to store material on site.
And for businesses wanting to truly close the loop themselves, the Dehydra can be used with our Rocket Composters too – composting the solid food wastes to create a valuable resource.
The system is also self-cleaning, meaning there is reduced food build up and minimal operator input is required.
