Can a garbage disposal crack a slate sink?

Posted by ninjabeans (My Page) on

I have a client that would like to install a custom slate farmhouse-style sink, as well as a garbage disposal. Is there any way the garbage disposal might harm or crack the slate sink in any way?

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

If the slate is too thin, or the garbage disposal is tightened down too much, yes, it can crack a sink.
