The PIWW-3000 renders medical
waste unrecognisable and reduces the original
waste volume by more than 70%. The environmental
friendliness of the PIWW-3000 is further enhanced
by the fact that the unit does not produce any
air or wastewater emissions or other hazardous
An onboard computer will be used to monitor and
manage the entire processing cycle for the PIWW-3000
unit. The time of processing, weight and pH level
are captured for permanent and regulatory records.
The pH level is continuously monitored so that
a pH value of above 11 is maintained for the treated
waste stream leaving the exit auger. The
PIWW-3000 has been tested and received approval
from the US EPA for use as an accepted medical
waste treatment process. The unit meets or exceeds
the STAAT II and WHO guidelines for biological
destruction, medical waste treatment process.
Simonds has been a leading manufacturer
in the US of hospital waste incincerators for
over 60 years. The company has over 300 operating
units in hospitals and industrial plants worldwide.
The incinerator unit's primary chamber is designed
to operate in a control or 'starved air' combustion
mode that produces a carbon rich smoke that is
thermally oxidised in the secondary chamber. The
two stage combustion design helps to minimise
particulate emissions and auxilliary fuel requirements.
Ash pushers or transfer rams move the waste pile
towards the rear of the unit and helps facilitate
an efficient burn of the material.
