Medical waste treatment


Medical waste refers to the waste generated by medical institutions (such as hospitals, clinics, etc.), such as discarded drugs, syringes, infusion bottles, expired drugs, biomedical waste, etc. These wastes contain various harmful substances, which can cause serious harm to human health and the environment. Therefore, the treatment of medical waste is very important, and the medical waste pyrolysis furnace is an effective treatment method.

The medical waste pyrolysis furnace utilizes high-temperature pyrolysis method to decompose medical waste into harmless waste gas, waste liquid, gas-solid phase, and ash. Ultimately, harmless thermal products can be obtained and the generated waste gas can be purified through equipment such as spraying and catalytic oxidation. The following is a detailed introduction to the main components and working principles of the medical waste pyrolysis furnace.


Medical waste pyrolysis furnace mainly consists of furnace body, furnace, burner, gas-solid separation system, ash treatment equipment, purification equipment, control system, etc. Among them, the furnace and burner are the core parts of the medical waste pyrolysis furnace, used for decomposition and combustion of waste. The gas-solid separation system is used to separate and treat mixtures of solids and gases, purify the gas and discharge it. After treatment, the solid is transformed into ash with low calorific value and easy transportation and treatment. Ash processing equipment is used for compressing, packaging, storing, and treating ash. Purification equipment is responsible for purifying and treating the waste gas generated by combustion to meet emission standards.

Working principle:

The working principle of medical waste pyrolysis furnace is similar to high-temperature pyrolysis treatment technology, and its process can be divided into preheating, oxidation, and ashing stages. Firstly, medical waste is stored in the furnace for preheating, and organic substances such as water and oil in the waste gradually evaporate. Next, the burner is activated to heat the medical waste in the furnace to a high temperature. The organic substances in the waste will be cracked and oxidized to produce certain thermal products. Then, the generated thermal products are separated through a gas-solid separation system, and the solid waste is treated to become low calorific value ash residue. The flue gas is purified and treated through purification equipment. Finally, the purified exhaust gas is discharged, and the ash is compressed and treated.

Application scenario:

Medical waste pyrolysis furnaces are mainly used in hospitals and other medical institutions for the treatment and resource utilization of medical waste. Compared with traditional landfill and incineration treatment, medical waste pyrolysis furnaces have the characteristics of safety and harmlessness, which can effectively reduce environmental pollution caused by waste, improve treatment efficiency and resource utilization.

In short, the medical waste pyrolysis furnace is a safe and environmentally friendly waste treatment equipment that can effectively convert medical waste into reusable energy, and has many applications. However, during use, it is necessary to operate and handle the equipment safely, comply with relevant laws and regulations, and ensure the stability and reliability of the equipment.
