A1) Technical Specification: Incinerators
All types of diesel fired incinerators suitable for HCW may be offered as long as they can safely treat medical
waste. The equipment should be compliant with all requirements for installation in Kenya. All components for
installation must be included.
Technical evaluation will consider the entire system including the treatment plant. It will be the responsibility of
the Bidder to supply a full system, including all necessary secondary systems and/or additional equipment.
The calorific value of the generated waste from the healthcare facilities differs from 5,000 kJ/kg (e.g. pathological
waste) up to 40,000 kJ/kg (filled sharp boxes) with an expected average heating value of waste of 14,000 kJ/kg.
An approved plant must have four distinct sections that demonstrate three principles of Turbulence, Residence Time and
Temperature inbuilt in the plant design .The regulated sections may include but not limited to:
Overall plant layout
Feed chamber/ charging
Primary Combustion Chamber
Secondary Combustion Chamber
Acid Gas Scrubbers
The stack/ chimney
