Food waste in-feed stations are freestanding. They are manufactured completely of stainless steel and come with all necessary fittings housed in a suitable framework. The hopper is connected to the vacuum collecting system and welded to the tabletop. The tabletop is equipped with a drain sieve and an overflow to limit the amount of free flowing water in the collecting system.
Cleaning nozzles are installed on each hopper. The volume of the hopper is approximately 30 litres, and it has an upper diameter of 500 mm. The piping for collecting the food waste from the feeding stations is DN150. The unit connects to the vacuum pipeline using a DN125 quick clamp connection and can be isolated for maintenance.
