Disposall rated tops in performance

United States Testing Company, Inc., conducted a series of laboratory tests comparing General Electric Disposalls with 15 leading competitive brands.

According to their report,* General Electric Disposalls "are superior to all of the competitive units, in that the G-E units will grind, a larger variety of items faster and with a finer texture of discharge."

Really fast and washes it away

EXCLUSIVE G-E "SUPER-GRIND"\x9D SHREDDING ACTION

The "heart" of a food waste disposer is the shredding area. The shredding area in the new "Super-Grind" Disposall consists of an impeller plate containing two rotating impellers and a shredding ring. The impeller plate is powered by a special 1/2 H.P. G-E motor that assures really fast shredding. The impeller plate, shredding ring and impellers are made of a strong, stainless steel of a type originally developed for America's fastest jets. The shredding action takes the most difficult types of food waste and reduces them to small particles quickly and easily. The new "Super-Grind" General Electric Disposall has speed, strength, and uniform grinding unmatched by any other disposer.

to sewer or septic tank!

Only G.E. has all these features:

Stainless steel sink flange: provides permanent luster ... It replaces the flange in your present sink opening. The Disposall becomes an extension of the sink and hangs under the sink out of sight and out of the way.

Safety Twistop Control: serves as sink stopper, strainer and operating switch on Model FA-60. Eliminates expense of separate wall switch installation. Keeps food waste in, foreign objects out, during operation of the unit.

Sink Stopper: featured on Model FC-40 serves as (1) sink stopper, (2) permits water drainage and (3) Disposall cover while unit operates.

Cushioned Mounting: Literally floats the entire unit in synthetic rubber. This rubber "shock absorber" cuts down noise and vibration.

Handy Dishwasher Drain Connection:

Plug is readily removable to accommodate the drain line from General Electric dishwasher, thus eliminating the need for a second trap.

and move closer to or away from the shredding ring, thereby eliminating the basic cause of jamming.

G-E food waste activator: strong, stainless alloy activator is attached to the highspeed impeller plate in an off-center position . . . flips bulky food waste (such as grapefruit skins) over and over so that the shredder teeth can quickly cut them into fine particles.

New-type seal: manufacturing quality is maintained to within millionths of an inch, to assure excellent water seal. Provides complete protection for bearing and motor parts during the life of the unit . . . eliminates costly repairs due to water leaks.

Constant, permanent lubrication:

Disposall never needs oiling for the life of the unit. A highly-efficient felt-wick reservoir provides adequate, uniform lubrication to the entire surface of the driveshaft at all times. Assures smooth, efficient, quiet service without any attention on your part.

Drain-line cushion: Rubber cushion prevents the transfer of noise and vibration to plumbing lines.

Strong Metal Shredder: made of a new-type, jet-plane stainless steel alloy . . . one of the toughest-known metals . . . never needs sharpening.

Super-strong impeller plate: Supports food waste in shredding compartment and drives impellers during operation.

Movable drain outlet: drain outlet can be rotated 360 either horizontally or vertically for easy installation . . . reduces cost of installation.

New V3 horsepower G-E Motor: for the new "Super-Grind" Disposall. Designed to give maximum power and trouble-free performance.

"No-jam" impellers: Made of high-quality stainless steel alloy to provide outstanding performance during the life of the unit. New design provides complete flexibility . . . enables impellers to both rotate

New simplified key-hole mounting:

permits quick, easy installation. Leaves both hands free to raise and hang Disposall in two easy motions.

Five Reasons Why the Disposall is Simple and Easy to Install

1. Simplified Sink Flange Assembly:

2. Quick "Key-hole" mounting: 3. Simplified Wiring:

Mounts quickly in the sink for easy hanging of the Disposall. After the sink flange is installed the gasket and clamping ring are added. Then both halves of the support ring are placed over ridge of sink flange, as shown.

The support halves fasten together with the two screws provided. When its four mounting studs are tightened, as shown, the Disposall is ready to hang.

With both hands free, the lightweight Disposall can be easily lifted so that the hex nuts pass through the large openings in the mounting ring. When the unit is turned all the way to the right and the four hex nuts are tightened, the sink mounting is complete.

Spacious junction box plus convenient pre-stripped leads are provided for quick, easy wiring of both models (FC-40 requires wall switch).

4. Simplified Plumbing:

Handy full length 1 1/2-inch tail piece is supplied with every unit, to fit standard plumbing fittings. Provision is made in the upper housing for a dishwasher drain connection, thus eliminating the cost of a second trap for the dishwasher. Both lower and upper housing sections of the Disposall can be rotated in either direction, to make drain connections quicker, simpler, and easier.

5. Easy-to-make special applications:

Disposall was designed to simplify connections in practically all new or existing homes. Optional connectors are available to install the disposer in double-bowl sinks, with existing high-wall drains, offset drains, and with many other special problems.

Fits all Types of Kitchen Sinks...

OLD-TYPE, NON-STANDARD SINKS

G-E Boring Tool:

The Disposall is designed to fit all standard sinks having a 3.5" to 4" drain opening. A special boring tool is available to enlarge smaller openings in older or non-standard sinks.

With this specialized cutting tool developed by General Electric engineers, it takes only a few minutes to bore the 3.5" hole required. It may be secured by any G-E Major Appliance Dealer from his G-E distributor. For use with any standard drill.

Special sink flanges:

There are three sink mounting flanges available, in addition to the standard flange supplied with the Disposall. They are (1) Long Throat Flange: For ceramic and cast iron sinks with deep throat. (2) Bored Sink Flange: Used in all sinks that have been enlarged from 2" to 3.5" opening. (3) Adapter Flange: For drain openings larger in diameter than the standard 3.5" to 4".

This flange is used with the standard flange supplied with the unit, or a long throat flange.

ANY SINK -NEW OR OLD

Master Adapter*:

Designed specifically for use with the General Electric Disposall. Ends time-consuming custom-made adaptions. Can be used to raise the outlet of any two-piece trap by as much as 3.5". Merely screw nut on connection to desired length, then cut and install.

DRAIN REAMING:

The washing of finely shredded particles through drain lines actually helps keep them free and clean. To obtain the full benefit of this action, it is recommended that drain line from the sink be reamed Out at the time of installation.

This is especially true when pipe line has been in use for some years.

SPECIAL AUTOMATIC WATER CONTROL:

G-E Automatic Water Control

(Catalog number WC60X300): This General Electric extra gives added protection for the plumbing system in your home. Its primary purpose is to assure a flow of cold water sufficient to congeal greases and wash shredded food particles safely down the drain. It is available at small extra cost from your G-E Major Appliance Dealer.

*Manufactured and distributed by American Sanitary Company, Abingdon, Illinois.

APPLICATION:

The Disposall can be installed in many ways, depending upon number and depth of sink bowls, location of existing drain outlet, and local plumbing codes. The typical arrangements below illustrate double and single bowl sinks, various types of traps, and continuous waste. Dimensions indicated are minimum.

In the case of double sinks, especially designed "directional flow fittings" are recommended for maximum sanitation and customer satisfaction. These fittings effectively separate the discharge from the Disposall and the discharge from the other sink. These continuous waste assemblies are furnished in a variety of trap styles and gauge tubing by the American Sanitary Manufacturing Company of Abingdon, Illinois, under the trade name "WHIRL-A-WAY," and also by the M. S. Little Company of Hartford, Connecticut, under the name "Duo-Waste". All of the assemblies shown may be purchased through your local plumbing dealer or jobber.

The American Sanitary "Master Adapter" is an adjustable fitting that can be used to raise the outlet of any two piece trap as much as ZVz". This makes the installation of the Disposall fast and easy, and eliminates the need for time-consuming custom adaptations to meet existing drain lines.

Trim and Specifications subject to change without notice
