Incineration of waste - a solution to an environmental problem
Incineration definition: vb the act of burning something completely; reducing it to ashes
What isincineration? Waste of whatever nature is a reality of modern day living. Of particular concern is bio-hazardous waste. Incineration is a waste treatment process that involves the combustion of organic substances contained in waste materials, Incinerating of waste materials converts the waste into ash, flue gas, and heat. The ash is mostly formed by the inorganic constituents of the waste, and may take the form of solid lumps or particulates carried by the flue gas. The flue gases must be cleaned of gaseous and particulate pollutants before they are dispersed into the atmosphere. In some cases, the heat generated by incineration can be used to generate electric power.
Incineration is particularly beneficial for the treatment of certain waste types such as medical waste and certain hazardous waste where toxins and pathogens can be destroyed by high temperatures. Waste incinerators are extremely efficient in rending toxic substances harmless. Examples include chemical multi-product plants with diverse toxic or very toxic wastewater streams, which cannot be routed to a conventional wastewater treatment plant.
The Incinerator Factory produces incinerators which are in compliance with the South African Air Pollution Prevention Act of 1965. The design of the incinerators is optimized to cut down on fuel consumption and provide safety in all aspects.
Our incinerators are particularly suited to hospitals and clinics for the destruction of putrescible waste in a hygienic and environmentally friendly way. The incinerators are eminently suitable for vetinary waste (carcasses) as well as waste from abattoirs.
Incineration of waste reduces the solid mass of the original waste by 80–85% and the volume by 95-96 %, Incineration does to a certain degree reduces the volume for landfilling. Landfills are currently being contaminated by biohazardous waste. Garbage incinerators render this material harmless.
On this page, you will find all the information about getting an incinerator that will meet YOUR needs for trash incineration or medical waste incineration. Our technical staff has over 40 years of experience in building incinerators and has a wealth of knowledge to impart regarding the design and installation of environmentally and compliant incinerators.
