The Concept

High-rise residential towers and hotels need to have a fast and economical way of collecting and disposing garbage generated daily. It is highly impractical to have the building management staff collect trash door to door, nor do they prefer that the residents carry trash in the lifts. The simplest solution to this problem is a centralized collection system that enables users to dispose garbage at their convenience, at their individual floors and only manage the trolley room. Similarily in hotels, linen can be collected centrally via chute from individual floors of the hotel.

Kleanchute offers high quality & technologically advanced stainless steel chutes to assist in this centralized collection & disposal of waste or linen. Advanced solutions such as electronic interfaces, automatic cleaning systems, fire security alarm integration etc have made such chutes very safe to use and widely accepted worldwide.

Recycling Eco-friendly Chutes
Segregated Waste Disposal System:

Recycling waste is the need of the hour with the several challenges the planet is facing from depletion of natural resources & changing climatic conditions. With several countries committing to handle these issues, it has become mandatory in several building codes to segregate trash in way which promotes maximum recyclability. Towards this effort, KleanChute provides user friendly green solutions as a part of its product portfolio. These solutions are being accepted worldwide especially where building or hotels plan to get IGBC / LEEDs certifications.

KleanChute chutes are fitted with a special diversion equipment at the bottom of the chute which assists in diverting the falling trash into respective bins.

The process works as follows:
  1. User approaches chute at his floor and has to select from one of 2 or tree switches available. (2 for Wet / Dry, 3 if more segregation required).
  2. The bi-sorter / tri-sorter at the bottom receives a signal and moves diversion flap to required position.
  3. Once done, it lights up a green light at user panel & releases door lock to let him open the door to dispose his trash.
  4. Door closes & locks becomes active again. The trolleys at the bottom now have respective trash ready to be sent for recycling, decomposition etc.
Electrical requirements & Technical Specifications: 24 VDC, 5A

Dimensions: 2.25x Chute Dia L x 1.2x Chute Dia W

Trash Compactor:
In buildings where waste generation volumes are substantial depending on higher number of occupants, floors or waste intensive offices etc., a compactor is used. Compaction of dry waste can lower volumes of waste by as much as 80%. The chute directly terminates into a compactor. Falling waste automatically activates the compaction function and waste is pressed together by a high tonnage ram. Compacted waste takes lesser space to store and hence fewer trips by maintenance team to clear the rubbish.

Electrical requirements & Technical Specifications:5 HP Microprocessor controlled

Dimensions: 45” (l)x 70” (h) x 40“(w) 40000 psi

Where to Install?
Chute may be indoor or outdoor, however fire regulations stipulate that when within the building they should be enclosed within a 2 hr. fire rated shaft. An indoor chute may pass through a floor slab or a vertical shaft.

Material of Construction:
Kleanchute strongly recommends the use of stainless steel for the manufacture of refuse chutes. Stainless steel has the advantage of being resistant to the humidity, acid and alkalis contained within refuse. SS has very high impact strength. For economy, Kleanchute also provides chutes from both GI however only for inland usage. SS is the material of choice and is available in SS 304, SS 430, SS 202. We hot-dip galvanize our angle framework for superior life.

Chute Thickness & Coatings:
We strongly recommend a minimum thickness of 1.5 mm (16 gauge for any type of chute). As building height increases higher thickness for bottom floor. For sound dampening coats a minimum DFT of chute thickness is recommended.

Intake Hopper Doors:
Doors should be UL listed and carry 1.5 hours fire rating minimum. Doors should be self closing on release & latching should be positive.

Shape of Chute:
To give an unimpeded free flow of refuse within a chute, the best shape has proved to be circular, Kleanchute chutes therefore have a circular cross section. We will make square section chutes to customers special requirements. Chute should be perfectly vertical and offsets are not recommended unless absoultely necessary, still no more than 15 deg and no more than one in two floors.

Correct Size of Chute:
NFPA prescribes that chutes should be a minimum 24" wide. However the following chute size are typically in use for clog free performance:
Plastic bag
Capacity (ltrs)
per chute
> 450 mm 12 ltrs 20+
> 500 mm 20 ltrs 30+
> 600 mm 40 ltrs 40+
> 750 mm 45 ltrs 60+
> 800 mm 50 ltrs 75+

Exhaust Fan:
Ensure fresh intake air is available in Trolley Room. 20-30 air changes per hr recommended depending on use.

Chute Body, Coating Options, Floor Frames

The intake door hopper is affixed to the throat of the floor intake section that helps carry the trash or linen through the chute veritical duct. Kleanchute has a special double slope design for centering the trash within the chute. A distinct feature the design is also the swaging and mechanical crimping done one end of the the chute sections. This provides excellent circular dimensionsal stability to the chute and enhance long term leak proof performance.

For smaller thickness , a majority of the chute sections are mechanically seam locked, instead of seam welding. This assists in preventing corrosion to a great extent.

Chute Termination And Fire Discharge Gate

A Trash / Grabage chute may differ from a Linen chute primarily in the way it terminates at the bottom, where the Garbage chute end into a trolley. Hotels and hospitals that use Linen chute install sorting tables at the bottom end of the chute to ensure that Linen can be sorted as it is recieved. In either cases, it is recommended to have a fire cut off door which will close the chute down in case there is a fire in the trolley room.

Type ’C’ Automatic Fire Shutter Door

An fusible link held sliding gate placed at an 15 Deg angle sweeps in even of fire and temperature rises to 68 Deg C. The gate is 1.5 Hr 250 Deg Fire Rating. Manual Cut off doors are also available
A Linen chute may terminate in a sliding decelerating track as a solidly packed bag of soiled linen achieves a reasonably high terminal velocity. For shorter buildings, An 45 Deg sliding bottom section consisting of a sloped outlet and top hinged door is available. The bottom section is held in place with use of a length adjustable support. It is still recommended to have a fire door for safety.
Type 'D' Hung Doors

A fusible link holds the gate which is held top hinged connected with spring counter balance. As temperature rises to 68 Deg C, 1.5 hr rated gate drops and is held closed by two retaining catches.

Automatic Brush Cleaning System

A cylindrical housing with replaceable stiff nylon brushes is automatically lowered and raised by a geared electric motor. The nylon brushes scrape and clean the internal surface as they move down and up the chute. The water supply for flushing the chute, the electric motor and the built in safety overloads, are all individually controlled by a robust electric logic control. The bristles are replaceable easily.

It may be fitted at the top or chute room with electronic solenoid valve controls, as part of an automatic or manual cleaning system. A low maintenance proportioned valve system provides a auto flow of disinfectant into the cleaning water every cleaning cycle. Nozzles can be varied & easily replaced to suit volume of disinfectant to be provided in the water flow.
