The type of waste matter processed can affect the service life of a disposer. Depending on use, disposers can last between five and 25 years. Here are five indications that it might be time to replace a disposer.
Almost any kind of foodservice operation can use a commercial disposer to process food waste. By specifying disposers, operators can reduce garbage odors, which can attract insects and vermin to dumpsters, and these systems also can decrease the amount of overall waste, which will help lower hauling costs.
In foodservice operations, it is not unusual to overlook the warewashing component of the business because it does not generate revenue. In an odd contrast, though, the dishwashing area typically consists of the foodservice operation's most expensive equipment.
Because they use water, gas and electricity, warewashers tend to be among the largest consumers of resources in any commercial kitchen. For foodservice operators wanting to get a better handle on their operating costs, specifying an energy-efficient warewasher is a good place to start.
