Hospital waste varies from site to site and the biggest challenge is to dispose of this wide range of waste streams using one solution.
Incineration is still the preferred way to process Type I to Type IV waste without endangering the health of patients, staff or anyone coming into contact with them.
You will see our range of medical incinerators located in hospitals and health clinics across the globe. Most recently, including 26 medical incinerators to the Egyptian Army for use in military hospitals across Egypt.
We are using a range of different incinerators from Inciner8 for the hospitals we operate in the region. Some of these are 100+ bed facilities while others are drop-in centres with relatively small volumes of waste.
On top of our regular monthly sales, we also installed 20+ medical units across the whole South Pacific region. You can see more about this on our waste management blog.
Due to the secondary chamber with its 2 second retention period* & minimum operating temperature of 850°C, our medical incinerator range is perfect to process most types of medical & pathological waste such as:
Waste contaminated with blood & bodily fluids, bacterias & stocks of infectious agents from laboratory work, or from patients & equipment from isolation wards.
Human tissues, organs or fluids, body parts and contaminated animal carcasses from theatres & laboratories. Includes out of date bloods & samples.
Syringes, needles, disposable scalpels and blades, etc. Usually stored in yellow plastic bins for protection of staff
Solvents used for laboratory preparations, disinfectants, and heavy metals contained in medical devices (e.g. mercury in broken thermometers) and batteries.
Expired, unused and contaminated drugs and vaccines. Store in bottles, loose or blister packaging.
Highly hazardous, mutagenic, teratogenic1 or carcinogenic, such as cytotoxic drugs used in cancer treatment and their metabolites.
Such as products contaminated by radionuclides including radioactive diagnostic material or radiotherapeutic materials. These require specialist handling in many cases.
Waste that does not pose any particular biological, chemical, radioactive or physical hazard. Found in general waste bins at bedsides and in public areas.
It can also be used as a viable bio-secure alternative to other hospital waste disposal systems.
With decades of knowledge in this sector, our hospital range of medical incinerators are designed to cater for the specialized requirements of large hospitals and medical centers during the internal waste management process.
