Cremation system fired by:
- Wood pier
- Gas / Oil
Only Gas/Oil fired cremators have secondary combustion chambers, where the products of combustion are post-heated to a temperature around 1100ºC, thereby burning all the toxic gases that would otherwise pose a serious threat to health.
- Mercury vapours, emanating from tooth fillings, if not received from the body prior to cremation will cause central nervous system disturbances. Young children exposed to these fumes are especially more vulnerable. Psychological abnormalities, ease to flare into anger, loss of comprehension etc. are some of the other side effects.
- Human bodies produce dioxins, when burned. These are highly toxic.
- Formaldehyde, used in embalming is linked to Carcinogenesis.
The average time depends on the size & weight of the individual and the temperature at which the loading is done. Obese cases take longer than regular cremations, due to the amount of material that is being cremated and with large amounts of fat being present, the unit is operated slower to better control the combustion process. The size of the individual is the main factor, although the gender has also to be taken into consideration. However, with furnace in hot condition it will be about 45 Kgs./Hr. average with a maximum rate of about 65 Kgs./Hr.
This of course is dependent on the size & weight of the body, no. of cremations. The average LPG consumption of our cremator varies from 12 – 18 Kgs./ day and the ambient temperature.
- Outstanding fuel economy: fuel consumption is lower than in other alternate forms of cremation.
- These are pre-assembled/tested units, which can be made operational within a weekof reaching the site of commissioning.
- Universally acknowledged technology and proven design with sturdy & stable system.
- Pollution free – no smoke – no odour – no fall out.
- Total fluid control – total evaporation of fluid is enabled.
- Need based on/off operation.
- Design & emission standards approved by internationally accredited regulatory authorities.
- Multi-chamber design with two stage controlled combustion.
- Maintenance free – the requirement of repeated checking & parts replacement is eliminated as the materials used are durable.
- Easy loading & clean out.
Yes, we offer in-house classes at your facility that can be held at the same time that we re-calibrate and tune up the equipment.
The equipment is a fully automatic system, which regulates itself based on the temperature of the equipment. As the temperature increases, the system provides the correct amount of both air and fuel to prevent overheating and constantly monitors & regulates itself, keeping the temperature under check.
This system of using waste afterburning heat to raise the temperature of the hearth to a value in excess of 1000ºC evaporates the fluid, as soon as it comes in contact with the hearth.
Yes, our cremation systems incorporate the largest after-burning area available. This feature ensures that the gases are fully combusted in the chambers prior to exit from the stack, leaving only heat waves and not flames to be visible. Our stack cooling system also prevents the stack from getting too hot, completely eliminating glow because of heat.
Exhaust stack must meet certain norms. In most instances, as long as the stack is manufactured with good engineering practice, it will meet the emission norms. However, the installation of the stack and height of its terminations are what the city or state is most concerned with. Rule of thumb in all countries the stack should be 4 ft. higher than any other building or roof line within 20 ft. radius. But, in India, Pollution Control Board has stipulated a height of 30 Mtrs. (100 ft. approx.) from the ground level.
If emission standards are made more stringent, it is possible that our equipment may already have met them. However, if retrofitting were required, we would offer full assistance to those customers affected by the change.
The cool down time is not at all a criterion for scooping out the remains, as with our retrieval system the remains can be removed at almost any temperature and immediately after one cremation is over.
The next cremation can be started as soon as the controls are reset and the unit has reached the set temperature. Mostly, since the front door is in closed position, the next cremation can be started immediately
The skin temperatureof the cremator should not exceed 30 – 40ºC above ambient. The cremator uses about 2500 CFM of air and requires an air louver of at least 24″ square to be located in the outside wall of the room. This air volume typically keeps the room temperature at ambient temperature.
Each system is fully fabricated and tested in our factory, before being transported to your site in dismantled condition. Prior to its arrival, we will have sent to you an installation manual which shows in great detail every step of the installation procedures. We suggest that a copy of the manual be given to your sub-contractors, so that everyone is aware of what is needed. The average time of installation is 5 – 8 days.
Our systems are fully automated; the whole process is temperature controlled from beginning to end for one-person operation.
Our factory trained personnel will train your operators in the correct operation and maintenance procedures during the start-up of the facility at your site. Further training on the maintenance of the burners and systems can be provided at our factory.
On an average, the operation of the crematorium may have to be stopped for a period of 5 days at the most/year for maintenance and repairs.
We have 8 service technicians and 5 refractory installers to handle all your repair needs. We operate a 24 hour maintenance hot line and can remedy most problems over the telephone. Should a service call be required, we would send the nearest available technician to your location.
The most common maintenance is the yearly tune-up & calibration and should be performed once a year or for every 500 cremations, whichever comes first.
Yes, however the style of burner we use in our system has no moving parts and therefore need not be replaced
Our recommended maintenance is every 500 cremations or annually. Cremation systems vibrate slightly due to the air blowers and this vibration can cause changes in the fuel and air input systems. This is why we recommend a system service and recalibration.
We are constantly working on new ideas to bring them to the cremation industry. While working on our research and development, we keep in mind the existing equipment and wherever possible, keep the new items within the parameters and size of the older units, so that up gradation costs will be minimised.
In our experience, the average life of the LPG fired cremator exceeds 20 years. We have a staff of technical support personnel, who canprovide onsite repair and / or rebuild your system and keep the unit at optimum operation.
It is possible to change the burner to any liquid fuel with modifications in the controls and firing system.
