Power Knot’s New Bin Tipper Improves Hygiene and Reduces Injuries in High-Volume Foodservice Operations
Powered by a low-pressure hydraulic mechanism that assures worker safety and quiet operation, the SBT-140 bin tipper lifts heavy garbage bins and empties their contents into any waste receptacle.
“We designed the SBT-140 from the ground up for use in professional foodservice environments, which demand simplicity, reliability, and hygiene. They are constructed from the same high-grade stainless steel as our range of biodigesters, so they are easy to keep clean and are extremely durable.”
At this year’s WasteExpo 2019 in Las Vegas, Power Knot, the market leader in products that process waste food in commercial foodservice operations, is announcing the immediate availability of the SBT-140, a stainless-steel bin tipper that can safely empty organic waste bins used in commercial kitchens and other foodservice environments that demand cleanliness and hygiene.
Powered by a low-pressure hydraulic mechanism that assures worker safety and quiet operation, the SBT bin tipper lifts garbage bins weighing up to 150 lbs (70 kg) and deposits the contents into any waste receptacle. Designed for emptying heavy organic waste bins into a dumpster, the SBT bin tipper can also be paired with high-volume Power Knot LFC-300 or LFC-500 biodigesters, which biologically convert waste food into gray water.
Minimal training required — safer and cleaner than manually unloading bins full of food waste
Food waste can accumulate quickly in a high-volume kitchen. Emptying a full garbage bin is unhygienic and physically challenging — manually lifting full bins of food waste into a dumpster can all too easily result in worker injuries and messy accidents.
The SBT tipper ensures safe and efficient emptying of heavy garbage bins. Safety features of the SBT bin tipper include dual switches that require the operator to have hands on them at all times for operation, a red light on the opposite side to warn other personnel, a safety cutout switch with a removable key, and solid lockable wheels. Further, the center of mass of the bin and its contents are at all times within the footprint of the SBT bin tipper, ensuring that it cannot tip over. The tipper can be equipped with optional side panels with a mesh screen and an interlocking door.
“We designed the SBT-140 from the ground up for use in professional foodservice environments, which demand simplicity, reliability, and hygiene. Since Power Knot bin tippers are constructed from the same high-grade stainless steel as our range of biodigesters they are easy to keep clean and are extremely durable,” said Iain Milnes, president of Power Knot.
