Disposal Terminology


Is there a generic name for the type of disposal that doesn't have a switch. It comes on when you put the stopper in it and twist it. Do they still make this sort of diaposal?

cover guard...or something like?
Can't remember another brand

But then again it's late.

Re: Disposal Terminology


hmmm, I know ISE makes a unit that detects a hand being inserted when the unit is running and shuts off automatically. As for the style MD is talking about...no clue. Sorry!!

Re: Disposal Terminology


Batch feed and continuous feed.

Continuous is the one you see the most of. Batch feeds, like the old ISE 17 are a bit more rare.

Re: Disposal Terminology


Thanks, guys.

I have a customer that just remodeled their kitchen, and I wired it. Against my better advice, they insisted on not having a disposal wired for, or even the provisions for it. Because of the construction type, fishing for a switch above the countertop is impossible at this point without damage. A switch in the sink base cabinet is objectionable to them, and a pneumatic switch on the countertop isn't something they're interested in either. They do, however, want a disposal now. I happened to remember some old one's I see from time to time that you just wire up hot, and use the stopper to turn them on. I didn't know if they still made them or not. The appliance delivery guys told the lady that there was no such thing, but I put appliance delivery guys in the same category as the clerk from Lowe's. Now, at least, I know what sort of disposer to tell her to ask for. I suspect she might have to go through her plumber to get one like that.

Re: Disposal Terminology


ISE now markets the batch feed as "Cover Control".

ISE makes them, model number 17, Franke makes them also, the model number is about 40 digits and I don't remember it. If there is an Abt Electronics store near you you can get them there.

Re: Disposal Terminology


Seems to me the batch feeds also had a wall switch so you could insert the cover without turning them on. The cover had a lift-n-turn type of assembly so that you could run water through it or not.

There are also commercial batch-feed disposers.
