Pathological Incinerators are designed to consume
Type IV waste. This includes human and animal remains consisting of
carcasses, organs and solid wastes from hospitals, laboratories,
abattoirs, animal pounds and similar sources.
These wastes consist of up to 85% moisture and 5% incombustible solids with a heating value of 1000 BTUs per pound as fired.
Pathological incinerators, unlike our other units, do not operate as starved-air systems. They function on excess air, which permits them to be safely loaded during the operation.
They also differ from other systems in that their primary chamber is on top of rather than below the secondary, enabling them to have a hearth, which is heated from the combustion in the secondary. The heated hearth provides for a better reduction of oils and other liquids emanating from Type IV wastes being consumed.
Waste is loaded every 15 minutes with 1/4 of the hourly rated capacity. Example: A 200 pound per hour unit would be loaded with approximately 50 pounds every 15 minutes.
