Somat Remote Pulping Systems offer maximum flexibility. A remote system connects food prep and scrapping areas together through a series of piping and transports food service waste to a remotely located extractor. The extractor removes the solids (pulp) and recirculates the water back to the grinding tanks. The pulp is fed into a Somat Dehydrator for additional reduction or directly into a haul away container. A remote pulping system reduces the need for trash cans, liners and laborers to “take out the trash.”
Foodservice waste enters the single or multiple pulpers (up to 15 pulpers on the system), is processed then mixed with water to create a pulpable slurry comprised of approximately 95% liquid and 5% solids.
The slurry is pumped through a pipeline to a remotely located Hydra-Extractor.
The Hydra-Extractor removes most of the water and the semi-dry pulp is discharged into a container for disposal.
The extracted water is recovered and returned to the pulping tank for re-use, offering significant water saving.
Reduces waste volume by 8 to 1 (87.5%).
Able to pump waste slurry a few feet to several hundred yards and to different floor levels.
Processes a wide variety waste types including compostable waste such as food, compostable disposables, cardboard and certain paper types, as well as non-compostable waste including plastics, milk cartons, polystyrene disposables and aluminum foil.
Capacity of processing up to 1250 pounds of waste per hour.
Available in several sizes and configurations including under dish table and tray feed models.
Offers water savings by efficiently reusing extracted water.
Available with The Grabber system to remove flatware and other ferrous metals from the pulping process.
