북미에서 사용되는 물건이라고 한다.

 

영어 선생님이 집안에서 garbage disposal system은 한국에 없는 거라고 하면서 우리 나라 집 문화에 대해서 이해가 안간다는 풍으로 말하길래.. 먼가 쳐다보았다.

 

 

 

 

분쇄기가 달려 있어서 조각조각 쓰레기를 나눠주는 것이라고 한다.

이렇게 하면 최대한 분해를 시켜주니, 시간을 줄일 수 있고, 청소를 빨리 끝낼 수 있는 장치가 있다는 것이다.

한번도 본적이 없지만, 문서로 봤을 때는 아마도 키친에 있는 것이니... 거의 음식물 찌꺼기 위주가 아닌가 싶다.

 

요즘 한국에 이런 장치를 가진 기계가 들어오고 있다고 한다..

What is a Garbage Disposer?

A garbage disposal, waste disposal unit, or garburator is a device, usually electrically-powered, installed under a kitchen sink between the sink's drain and the trap which shreds food waste into pieces small enough to pass through plumbing. Indispensable in the modern kitchen, a garbage disposal helps make food preparation and cleanup easy and fast.

How Garbage Disposals Work

Attached to the underside of a kitchen sink’s drain, a garbage disposal works by shredding food scraps fed down the drain with the flow of water or the push of a garbage disposer accessory. When turned on the garbage disposer uses its motor to spin a turntable that pushes the particles in the unit to the outside of the chamber where is comes into contact with a grinding ring. The action of the spinning turntable forcing the particles into the grinding ring shreds the particles into small enough pieces to flow through holes in the turntable and grinding ring and into the plumbing. Dishwasher drain water can also be run through the garbage disposal so that any large particles are chewed up and drained away.

Types of Garbage Disposers

There are two general types of disposers: continuous feed models and batch feed models. Most models you're likely to find are continuous feed models; the idea here is that you run the water and start the disposer running before you put any scraps in the chamber. In other words, continuous feed models are typically not designed to have to start stationary with scraps in the disposer. Starting the disposer with scraps already in the chamber could cause it to jam. Batch feed models are designed to be activated by turning a stopper after loading the disposal with garbage. Once that batch of scraps is disposed of, more can be added and the process repeated.

Garbage Disposer Tips

* Use cold water when grinding food (hot water can melt fats and clog the mechanism and the pipes).
* Do not overfill the disposer.
* Do not pour bleach, drain cleaners, or other chemicals into the unit.
* Do not grind overly fibrous materials, bones, or coffee grounds (check the owners manual) or materials like glass, metal, or rubber.
* Run water before and after you use the disposal.

 

 

또한 외국에서는 집을 매매 할 때, 이런 기계가 있는지 없는지에 따라서 가격에 영향을 미친다고 하니, 잘 봐두는 것도 괜찮을 거 같다.
