MEDICAL WASTE INCINERATORS for furnishing, installing, adjusting, and testing automatically controlled air medical waste incinerators having a capacity to burn 75 Kg/hour waste materials of biological and pathological nature.
The process of incineration provides the advantage of volume reduction as well as the ability to dispose of recognizable waste and sharps. On site incinerators provide a quick and easy way of disposing medical waste. This is the most widely accepted and feasible method of managing highly infectious waste.
The incinerator will be of the controlled air type, designed for (6-8) hour-day operations and rated at 75 kg per hour. The incinerator plant will include the following:
3Continuous loading using hydraulic ram feeder o Burners and fuel system
o Controls and Instrumentation o Chimney and flue connections
o Incinerator loader for loading hoppers or carts o Ash handling equipment
41 year spare parts
5Waste weighing equipment
6Wheeled 2.0m3 waste storage hoppers (number to be decided by hospital managers)
8Incinerator building, including fire safety equipment
9Platform and portholes designed to USEPA standards to facilitate stack testing.
