POST 01220E: WANTED-SMALL-SCALE INCINERATORS FOR SAFETY BOXES 31 JANUARY 2008 _____________________________________________________________ Toryalai Hart writes in with a query for SSIs that can handle healthcare waste which comprises large quantities of plastic. **************************************************************** Hello Techneters - I'm in the process of compiling a database of small-scale incinerators and am in particular lacking options for systems capable of handling loads of 100% safety boxes (pure plastic). Most small-scale incinerators require mixing infectious waste bags with safety boxes to avoid damaging the unit. This is fine until a country undertakes a national immunization campaign, and floods the medical waste stream with tons of plastic that they are unable to cleanly destroy. So far, I have DeMontfort, Turbo 2000, Waste Disposal Unit (WDU), DD Best, DD Mini, and Medicin 400. There are pros and cons for many of these products (durability, electricity/fuel required, emissions quality, temperature gage, price of civil works, availability of materials in country, etc), and analysis will be done factoring all of this in. Please note that technology should operate at temperatures higher than 600 degrees, and smoke from stack should be clear while running. If anyone has good field experience with a particular brand/model (diesel, LPG, electric, biomass, auto-combustion, other), please share details so I can add it to the database.
