Solid Waste Thermal Oxidizer Incinerator System: Helios 1.0

incinerator equipment The Helios 1.0 Solid Waste Incinerator (formerly known as the Vulcan Solid Waste Incinerator) is a modular, dual chamber unit designed to help locations effectively dispose of solid waste and solid waste streams. Designed with automatic controls, these incinerators take materials through a two chamber incineration process. The first chamber effectively incinerates waste, while the secondary chamber uses thermal oxidation to help get rid of any VOCs released from the primary chamber. This creates a safer and more effective disposal process for waste on your site.

Standard incinerator design features a batch loading process through the primary chamber. If continuous turbulence is required, intermittent feed models are also available to constantly add motion to the interior of the unit.

*System Capacity: The rated system capacity for this unit is 1 MMBtu/hr. or 140-200 lbs./hr. (64-90 kg/hr). The second number is listed as a range. Where your products fall within that range will depend on the type and amount of waste being incinerated.

For all solid waste, each item is rated with a designated BTU value. Knowing the waste type and intended quantity will help our team determine which side of the range your incinerator will be able to work toward.
