InSinkErator, Inc. to launch its latest line of Steaming Hot Water Taps (SHWT) and showcase its full range of high performance commercial food waste disposers & pulper systems and its latest fully programmable water control saving panel during their participation at this year’s editions of Gulfood, the world's biggest annual food and hospitality show and Ingredients Middle East, the region's food and beverage ingredients exhibition. Both events will be held from February 25 to 28, 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). The company is expected to throw the spotlight on its latest innovations in foodservice waste management and water conservation while sharing the environmental and strategic advantages to be gained from using its latest products. The InSinkErator stand will be located at Z-B105 at Zabeel Hall of DWTC. The Waste Xpress (WX300) is InSinkErator’s high performance Waste Reduction System that can process both liquid and solid waste. Recommended for continuous operation areas like restaurants, hospitals, food courts, labour camps etc. the model can help drive in key savings because there is less material to haul away and the staffs are left with more time to perform more productive tasks in a cleaner environment. The WX300 is a high-performance, grade pulping system that cost-effectively processes kitchen waste and is the perfect choice where space is at a premium. The system has the unique ability to grind both food waste and other paper and plastic waste often mixed with food waste in restaurants. The kitchen waste is ground and then sent to a dewatering unit that squeezes the liquid out of the waste. The water is sent down the drain to join the sewer or septic system and the ground waste is bagged and hauled away. Built from stainless steel, the WX300 can process up to 320 kg of kitchen waste and reduces bulk waste volume by 85%. InSinkErator’s hot water dispensers can produce up to 100 cups of near-boiling water in one hour, using less energy than a 40 Watt light bulb. The dispensers offer users key savings in both money and time while also contributing to an environmentally responsible lifestyle with every use. These SHWTs can be mounted on either the kitchen sink or work surface and draws water from a home or business supply line into InSinkErator’s specially designed filtration system, which reduces chlorine, lead, turbidity and other unpleasant tastes and odors to vastly improve the flavour of any drinks and foods. The water passes thru a 2.5-liter stainless steel tank, heated to 98 degrees centigrade and stored until it is used. As the water is used, more water is replaced in the tank, ensuring users instant hot water when needed.
