The T-500 series is designed for dry waste applications and is available as a standard duty, heavy duty and extra-heavy duty unit depending on the application. Generally the T-500 standard duty is ideal for the retail environment, the T-500HD for the commercial sector and the T-500XHD for the industrial and municipal sectors. Each system can be customized to suite the client’s needs and can be supplied as part of a 100% turnkey system. Where space is limited, the T-500X model delivers the same benefits as the T-500 unit; but with with an overall smaller footprint.
