How it works!

Our recent blogs have been about who we can design and build incinerators for, but how does an incinerator it works?

After a conversation with my lad about what it is I manufacture I thought it would be great to share the same with our readers.

Incinerators don't always use cutting edge technology (although we like to manufacture ours to the most modern and highest standard) instead, they use components that perform well under pressure and in hot settings. All the components in our incinerators have been chosen because they can withstand the test of time and are made from the best materials.

There are 6 fundamental core components:

Principal Chamber

The loading and lighting of the waste occurs here. The high ambient temperatures that are trapped inside the chamber lining of most incinerators cause the ignite.

Supplementary chamber

Due to its ability to prevent the development of dangerous particles, it is required by legislation in Canada, the USA, Australia, and Europe. In many nations, it is required by law that flue gas remain in this secondary chamber for at least two seconds at 850°C or more.

Velocity Cowl

A stack height of at least 3 metres is needed for most incinerators. In locations that are more developed or where the weather calls for it, this will be higher. For widespread desperation, the design propels gases very high into the air.

Thermocouples and the control panel

Before any garbage is added for incineration, these regulate how the machine operates and make sure the chambers are heated to the proper temperature. Depending on the type of waste, the settings can be fully customised to the operator's needs.


Normally turned off during the combustion stage, these are used to warm up the incinerator.

Fuel tank

This is where the fuel is kept. When the incinerator is in operation, the burners will have direct lines into the tank.

Each part needs regular servicing and maintaining – also a something we do!

There’s a long list of different incinerators each designed and created differently but fundamentally have the same parts.

On a personal note, I have realised I can’t draw with pencil and paper, as explaining to the boy I notice I definitely require the autocad!
