Lincat has released a new, updated version of the WasteStation in its IMC range of waste management solutions.
The WasteStation Compact from the UK-based Lincat is a smaller version of the company’s classic WasteStation.
It offers the same waste compacting capabilities but in a smaller package, at 900mm high, 600mm wide and 700mm deep, a size Lincat called “slightly smaller than a single-door bottle cooler”.
Thus it is designed for smaller establishments such as modestly sized pubs, restaurants, cafes and care homes.
Helen Applewhite, marketing manager for Lincat and IMC brands, said: “IMC developed the original WasteStation over ten years ago.
“Sales of the unit remain strong, as awareness grows of the of the environmental damage being caused by sending food waste to landfill.
“It remains a fantastic solution for larger organisations who are processing up to 700 kg of food waste per hour and who have the space to accommodate the unit.
“And it is great to see so many organisations reaching out to us for help in reducing their food waste carbon footprint.
“However, for smaller organisations we didn’t have an offering which fitted their volume requirements, space or budget.
“Having conducted our own extensive research, we couldn’t find a combined macerator and dewaterer system of a similar compact footprint on the market.
“We therefore decided to produce our own. The resulting IMC WasteStation Compact offers an incredibly small footprint, and the capacity to process up to 200 kg of mixed plate and soft food waste per hour. It’s exciting to see it launch.”
The WasteStation Compact comes in stainless steel and will be supplied with a two-year parts and labour warranty.
