With tens of thousands of tonnes of extra medical waste in circulation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has put a tremendous strain on health care waste management systems around the world, jeopardising the health of staff, patients, disposal workers and the general public with PPE and other hazardous materials being discarded by hospitals, clinics and other healthcare sites.
Some 20 to 25% of the total waste generated by healthcare establishments is regarded as hazardous and may create a variety of health and environmental risks if not managed and destroyed in an appropriate manner. Incineration is the only method providing complete destruction and neutralization of the medical waste. This should wherever possible be done ideally at the source.
With decades worth of experience in the medical sector, our extensive range of incinerators includes models which safely destroy all categories of Hazardous and Non-Hazardous waste Types I - IV including, but not limited to, Anatomical, Infectious, Medicinal, Cytotoxic/Radioactive, Municipal, and Offensive waste.
All of our medical incinerators operate at temperatures ranging between 850-1200°C with gas retention of 2 seconds minimum.
Our range is designed to cater for volumes from up to 1,000kg/hr burn rate with models to suit the budget and economical needs of small health clinics through to the more demanding requirements of large hospitals in their waste management processes.
