There is a lot of confusion about how a food grinder works.
Watch the videos below to see how a food grinder actually works.
The biggest misconception about food grinders is that they contain blades that grind the food and are therefore very dangerous. To clarify, food grinders do NOT contain blades.
Instead, food waste grinders use cams on a rotating plate which, through centrifugal force, press the food against the stationary grinding ring and thereby break the food down into very fine particles, almost liquid. After they are ground down, running water flushes the particles through the grinding ring out of the food waste crusher into your wastewater pipe.
From there, it flows to a wastewater treatment plant where these food scraps are converted into BIO-gas energy.
How a food disposer works?
The biggest misconception about food disposers is that people think it works like a blender with spinning blades. Breaking down the waste.In reality garbage disposals work in a different way – and there are NO blades involved.
Instead, lugs, mounted on a spinning plate use centrifugal force to continuously force food waste particles against a stationary grind ring. The grind ring breaks down the food waste into very fine particles, virtually liquefying them. After they’re ground, the running water flushes the particles through the grind ring and out of the disposer and into your waste water pipe.
From there it flows to a waste water treatment plant where these food residues are produced into BIO gas energy.
