Helios 4.2 Thermal Oxidizer Incinerator Solid Waste Incineration System

Incinerators to burn solid wasteThe Helios 4.2 Solid Waste Incinerator (previously known as the Vulcan 4.2 Solid Waste Incinerator)is the perfect option for disposal of mixed solid waste materials. Often used in industrial locations where bulk disposal is required, these units feature a system capacity of 363-605 pounds per hour (or 165-275 kg per hour). This has helped businesses and industries to address their largest disposal requirements.

Due to the nature of solid waste disposal, these incinerators feature a dual chamber design that incinerates materials first in the primary chamber and then second in the secondary chamber. This helps to complete dispose of unwanted or harmful materials during the incineration process.
