Garbage chute

Garbage shooting ducts, also known as garbage chutes, are a type of ductwork found in industrial facilities and high-rise apartment buildings.
These ducts collect and process waste from factories, warehouses, and other industrial facilities, or from apartments and other residential buildings.
The main function of these ducts is to remove the waste from the building or facility and transport it to a central location for disposal.
Garbage chutes are typically made of stainless steel and are designed to be interconnected systems that are easy to use, secure, and clean.
They consist of several components, including:

Chute Duct:

This extends from the garbage collection room to the top floor where the highest intake is located.
The tubes are continuously TIG welded, which ensures a watertight system without any bolts, rivets, or other projections inside the chute.

Chute Intake:

This is the opening through which waste is deposited into the chute.
It is typically located on each floor of the building and is designed to prevent odors and pests from escaping.


This is a section of the chute that is angled to allow for changes in direction between floors.
Bi-Sorter/Tri-sorter: This is a device that separates recyclable materials from non-recyclable materials.

Chute Support Frames:

These are the frames that support the chute and keep it in place.
Sanitizing Unit: This is a device that sanitizes the chute to prevent the growth of bacteria and other harmful microorganisms.

Fire Rated Interlocking Doors:

These are doors that are designed to prevent the spread of fire through the chute.

Clamp Rings:

These are rings that are fixed to the exterior of the chute to cover bell-mouth tubes and make the chutes smoke-proof.


Trash chute vent and exhaust fan play a major role in inhibiting unwanted smell in your building.
Kapella recommends a minimum of 10ACH in the chute and applies its system worldwide accordingly. NFPA 82 specifies that trash chutes should be ventilated.
The vent unit is shaped from stainless steel parts such as weatherproof cap, insect screen, and vent duct.

Brush Cleaning System:

Trash chutes need to be cleaned periodically by the brush cleaning system while duct cleaning should be performed every two to five years.
The avoidance of necessary maintenance may result in serious health effects such as cold, allergies, and watery eyes.

In summary, garbage shooting ducts or chutes are a type of ductwork that collects and processes waste from industrial facilities and residential buildings.

They are designed to be secure, easy to use, and clean, and consist of several components, including chute ducts, chute intakes, offsets, bi-sorters/tri-sorters, chute support frames, sanitizing units, fire-rated interlocking doors, clamp rings, ventilation, and brush cleaning systems.
