Waste dehydrator, pros and cons


About 80 percent of the mass ofwet wasteit is given by water; awaste dehydratorreduces the volume of organic substances by eliminating the aqueous component. Thewaste dehydratoracts as a dryer that eliminates up to 80 percent of water, reducing the weight and volume of waste and avoiding the onset of bad odors.

Waste dehydrator, advantages
Organic waste treatment systems, such as waste dehydrators, transform mixed food waste and other organic waste into a sterilized and dehydrated dry residue, free from bad odor and easy to deliver.

-The weight of waste is cut by 80 percent and it is easier to transport it
-The volume of waste is reduced by 50 to 75 percent so the organic fraction becomes less bulky
-It brings about a drastic reduction of bacteria with a consequent elimination of bad odors
- Dehydrated organic waste leaves no residue in the waste bin
- Dehydrated organic waste does not attract flies or other insects

Among the variouswaste dehydratorson the market, the forced air model is very popular. It is a household appliance that, using a flow of hot air, is able to dry organic waste, eliminating humidity, bad odors and bacteria.

They exist on the marketwaste dehydratorsfor domestic or industrial use. Models intended for domestic use usually have a basket with a capacity of 3-7 liters. The professional ones, destined for large restaurants, can treat 30-50 kg of organic waste per day. Even bigger are the models ofwet waste dehydratorfor industrial use which, in one day, can also treat a ton of organic waste.

Waste dehydrator, disadvantages
The first disadvantage of thewaste dehydrators is that, being electrical equipment, they work on current: the weight of the organic dehydratoryou will feel in the bill and at the time of purchase ... a small appliance for domestic use, with a 5 kg capacity basket, costs approximately 100-150 euros. Awaste dehydratorwhich transforms the wet component into dry, sterilized and dehydrated waste, can require approximately 40 kWh to process 50 kg of waste.

Another disadvantage lies in the noise of these devices: if adehydratordomestic has a sound level that is below 40 dB - to be clear, the same noise produced by the Hard Disk of a computer -, adehydratorprofessional is certainly noisier, on average 65decibels,to be clear, a car passing through a deserted road emits anoise pollutionequal to 70 dB.
