Agricultural Incinerators

No-one ever wants to think about agricultural waste and incineration.

It’s hard to miss the latest review of ELMS farming subsides. Budgets are being cut and tighten everywhere, whilst the increase of fuel is rising. But the farmers of the UK are still expected to produce 1.8 million food and animal products a day for the UK.

So, to break it down, let’s understand that DEFRA’S rural payments to farmers is being seriously affected and we here at #MandSCombustion want to help those #farmers and in agricultural capacities. Whether you are trying to dispose of dead animals or #animal product waste, our range of DEFRA type approved incinerators can be designed and manufactured to the highest standard with reasonable costs.

#Temperature requirements for all incinerators

The gas in the chamber must be at the required temperature (850°C for 2 seconds, 1100°C for 0.2 seconds) before you can start incinerating ABPs.

You must record temperatures during burning (either single chamber or secondary chamber). You should keep these records for 2 years.

You must do this either spontaneously during the burn cycle, or manually, every 2 hours for 10% of incinerations.

We know that the type of incinerator needed will need to be ABPs if the exhaust gas is held at 850°C for 2 seconds, or 1100°C for 0.2 seconds.

The 850°C/2 second temperature is often achieved by using a secondary chamber to retain the gas for the required 2 seconds.

You can use a mobile incinerator but it’s subject to the same regulations as a static incinerator.

#Chambers in low-capacity incinerators

If you’re incinerating category 1 material in a low-capacity incinerator, it must have a secondary chamber. We can help with the design, specifications and manufacturing of suitable incinerators.

#Chambers in high-capacity incinerators

Your high-capacity incinerator must be equipped with a secondary chamber which switches on automatically if the temperature of the gas falls below 850°C or 1100°C. We can help with the design, specifications and manufacturing of suitable incinerators.

#Loading your incinerator

If your primary chamber and secondary chamber are linked, and the primary doesn’t ignite until the secondary has reached 850°C, then you can load the primary cold.

If they’re not linked, you must load the primary chamber hot.

#Paperwork for your incinerator

The company that made your incinerator must give you a manufacturer’s declaration which confirms your machine can meet the required heat standards.

It should also show the:

· make and model of your incinerator (which we do as standard procedure)

· settings you should use to meet the regulation heat. (of course, we give manufactures instructions.)

· You must have written confirmation from a qualified service person, that shows your incinerator has been serviced at least once a year and is in full working order. (We are always happy to service incinerators for returning clients.)

So, if you know a farmer or someone in the agricultural sector please forward on this blog.

We are still looking to build business relationships, to manufacture new projects, to service incinerators and cremation furnaces.
