Verantis® designs our controlled air incineration system to process waste streams produced by industrial, medical, and clinical applications.

The systems handle waste via a two-stage process. In the primary chamber, the system operates in a sub-stoichiometric mode. Organic materials are heated to a temperature of approximately 750ºC (1385ºF). In the absence of enough oxygen for complete combustion, volatile gases are generated for processing in the secondary chamber. The second stage of the process involves oxidizing the products of combustion generated in the primary chamber in an excess air environment in the secondary combustion chamber. The resultant gas stream is composed of primarily carbon dioxide and water vapor.

Key Points

  • Equipment can process medical or clinical waste at feed capacities from 25 kg/hr up to 1,000 kg/hr on an intermittent or continuous basis
  • Complete systems include multiple waste feed and ash removal configuration along with fully integrated combustion systems
  • Can be operated with minimal particulate emissions, which can be controlled with wet scrubbing systems
