Inciner8 Incinerators and incineration

In some countries you will require additional Pollution Control Systems (PCS) to meet with local limits and thresholds.

Our range of pollution controls enable us to offer the right solution every time.

Why do i need a pollution control system for an incinerator?

The three conditions listed below prevent dioxins from “cracking” into smaller more reactive dioxins, which can reform into new dioxin molecules, especially in the presence of heavy metals which can act as catalysts.

Dioxins, furans and similar gaseous components are only destroyed by :

  • Homogeneous high temperature (> 850°C)
  • Excess of oxygen (>6 %)
  • Sufficient residence time at high temperatures

When dealing with more volatile or hazardous waste streams such as medical waste or high quantities of plastics additional gas cleaning equipment such as a venturi scrubber or pollution control system (PCS) is required.

Basic pollution control

Our standard incinerator range is designed in a way that all exhaust gas has to pass through a secondary burner for complete re-burn of harmful gas components. Exhaust gases are then retained for a period of time at a high temperature (850 – 1100°C, depending on the application).

“All our incinerators are designed to ensure all 3 conditions are met as a minimum.”

This is what we call ‘Basic’ pollution control.
