Waste Incinerator Capacity
The waste incinerator units shall be designed to burn medical waste load of capacity 50 kg/hr with calorific values
ranging from 2,300 kJ/kg to 30,000 kJ/kg at a designed thermal rate of 1,440,000 kJ/hr.
Method of Waste Charging
Waste shall be fed into the primary chamber manually, that is by hand. Semi-automatic or automatic feeding systems are
Method of Burning
The primary and secondary burners shall be equipped with at least one fuel oil burner each. Waste shall be manually fed
into primary chamber and heated to required ignition temperature of at least 600 degree Celsius. A controlled amount of
air shall be admitted by combustion air blower to maintain the necessary reaction heat required for thermal degradation
of waste. Smoke, ashes, volatile gases, etc generated from the primary chamber shall be effectively and efficiently
ignited in the secondary chamber. Emission through the stack shall be within environmental standards.
The internal lining for combustion chambers shall be made up of pre-determined thickness and high temperature stability
insulation, high strength firebricks and castible refractory. The temperature rating for refractory shall be at least
1,500 degree Celsius. The casing of the chamber shall be constructed from high grade mild steel plate. Lifting devices
such as eye bolts and lifting lugs shall be fitted as standard.
