This specification establishes the material, design, and performance requirements pertinent to the construction of commercial pulping and waterpress assemblies that are intended for grinding food scraps, paper, cardboard, and disposable plastic food-service ware. Unless otherwise specified, materials used to fabricate pulpers and waterpresses may include corrosion-resistant steel and other corrosion-resisting materials, abrasion-resistant cast iron, austenitic gray iron, copper tube, brass pipe, alloy steel, black and galvanized pipe, gaskets and seals, perforated metal, stainless steel pipe, plastic piping and fitting, and austenitic gray iron pipe fitting. Assembled pulpers and waterpresses shall meet operational, electrical, lubrication, finish, and performance requirements, and should function satisfactorily as specified.
