Thermal Oxidizer

Solid Waste Incinerator Helios 1.5

thermal oxidizerGEI Works Thermal Oxidizer Helios 1.5 (formerly known as Vulcan 1.5) is designed for the effective disposal of trash, solid waste, and various other waste streams. Built as a modular, dual chambered incinerator, these units put waste streams through a primary burn chamber and a secondary thermal oxidizer. This effectively incinerates solid waste and any VOCs released from the primary chamber, creating a more environmentally safe system. The Helios 1.5 is rated with a system capacity of 1.5 MMBtu/hr, resulting in a solid waste stream of 175-250 lbs/hr.

*System Capacity: The rated system capacity for this unit is 1.5 MMBtu/hr or 175-250 lb/hr (80-114 kg/hr). The second number is listed as a range. Where your products fall within that range will vary depending 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 towards.
