A Finnish company that has specialized in systems for waste disposal on ships has been applying Börger rotary lobe pumps for years to convey food waste on ships. The Börger pumps are used in a vacuum system which conveys kitchen waste only. Meanwhile, more than 40 units are in operation. The food waste is filled into a hopper in the commercial kitchen. Due to the rotation of the rotors, the Börger rotary lobe pump generates a vacuum and thus sucks the food waste from the commercial kitchen into a storage container. When in port, the Börger pump is used to empty the storage container.
