ORCA, an environmentally friendly alternative solution to food waste disposal.

The ORCA comes in three sizes.

The ORCA model that suits your business best will depend on how much food waste is generated every day in your facility and how many hours a day your staff will be feeding the ORCA.

OG25

Our smallest model, the OG25 aerobically processes an average
of 11kgs of food waste per hour, depending on the food waste composition. It’s a heavy-duty machine with stainless steel construction, which weighs 363kgs. Food waste can be added regularly to achieve maximum digestion capacity. The OG25 utilizes ORCA Bio Chips to hold high levels of Microorganisms that digest organic waste.
• Weighs 363kgs

• Can process 11kgs of food waste per hour
• Can divert up to 95 tonnes of food waste per year from landfill

OG50

The OG50 aerobically processes an average of 22kgs of food waste per hour, depending on the food waste composition. It’s a heavy- duty machine with stainless steel construction, which weighs 544kgs. Food waste can be added regularly to achieve maximum digestion capacity. The OG50 utilizes ORCA Bio Chips to hold high levels of Microorganisms that digest organic waste.
OG100
The OG100 aerobically processes an average of 45kgs of food waste per hour, depending on the food waste composition. It’s a heavy- duty machine with stainless steel construction, which weighs 680kgs. Food waste can be added regularly to achieve maximum digestion capacity. The OG100 utilizes ORCA Bio Chips to hold high levels of Microorganisms that digest organic waste.
• Weighs 544kgs
• 1740mm x 889mm x 1244.6mm
• Can process 22kgs of food waste per hour
• Can divert up to 189 tonnes of food waste per year from landfill

OG100

The OG100 aerobically processes an average of 45kgs of food waste per hour, depending on the food waste composition. It’s a heavy- duty machine with stainless steel construction, which weighs 680kgs. Food waste can be added regularly to achieve maximum digestion capacity. The OG100 utilizes ORCA Bio Chips to hold high levels of Microorganisms that digest organic waste.
• Weighs 680kgs
• 2921mm x 889mm x 1244.6mm
• Can process 45kgs of food waste per hour
• Can divert up to 378 tonnes of food waste per year from landfill

How often and how much can I feed the ORCA?

This will be dependent on the type of food waste you put in it. But as a general rule it is advised you try and feed every 2 to 3 hours. The higher the frequency of feeding, the greater yield of digestion over a 24-hour period.

Feeding the ORCA will also depend on the type of food waste and the size of your ORCA system.

The general guidelines are:
OG25: processes 25 lbs per hour.
OG50: processes 50 lbs per hour.
OG100: processes 100 lbs per hour.

When do I know the ORCA is at capacity?

To avoid overfilling, ensure that you can always see the rubber top of the auger arm. In the event of overfilling, the water sensors that are located on each side of the ORCA will be blocked and it will not operate effectively. Do not overfill the ORCA.

Do I need to refill the Microorganisms?

No, the Microorganism reservoir is locked and only accessible by the ORCA Service Department. If the red microbe sensor light goes on please contact ORCA service support at 1-855-355-6722 (ORCA) to schedule refill service. Please note this light will go on when the levels are getting low but you will still have one week’s worth of Microorganisms.

How often do the Bio Chips need to be replaced

Our service department will inspect the Bio Chips at each monthly service visit and will replace them as necessary.

What should I do if the red lights come on?

If the microbe light sensor comes on, please contact ORCA service support at 1-855-355-6722(ORCA). Keep in mind that you will still have at least one week’s worth of Microorganisms in reserve.

If the water light sensor comes on and is solid, spray down sensors with the hose attached to the machine and/or remove extra food waste from the ORCA.

If there is any standing water present in the ORCA please contact service support at
1-855-355-6722 (ORCA).

Should I ever turn the machine off?

No, the ORCA should never be turned off and should be running continuously. Only in the event of an emergency should the ORCA ever be turned off. Please note that the ORCA will go into power save mode if the door has not been opened for 12hours.

How much water does the ORCA use?

OG25: 100 gallons */ 24 hr
OG50: 150 gallons */ 24 hrs
OG100: 200 gallons */ 24 hrs

Our service department will inspect the Bio Chips at each monthly service visit and will replace them as necessary.

Is there any residue left over?

As long as organic material is being placed in the ORCA there will not be any residue left over. Keep in mind that some items will take longer to be digested. For example, lettuce and peelings will digest much quicker than chicken bones. The Microorganisms will keep digesting the organic waste until it is in the form of a ‘grey wastewater’ which then goes through the screen at the bottom of the ORCA into the sanitary drain.

How is the organic waste broken down?

In the ORCA, organic waste is degraded using aerobic digestion, the process by which Microorganisms use oxygen to break down organic matter into water and carbon dioxide.

Yes. Our technology employs aerobic digestion using a naturally occurring Microorganism inside a moving bed bio lm reactor. By balancing the environment inside the reactor, the process is able to break down solid organics into wastewater, on average within 24 hours.

What happens to the effluent when it leaves the machine?

Once the effluent is discharged from the machine, it is disposed of directly into the internal drainage system where it then flows into the public sewage system. From here, it will be treated at the wastewater treatment plant and discharged into rivers, lakes or other sources as clean water.

How long is the installation process?

Once pre-installation requirements are confirmed, installation can be completed in one day.
