Pharmaceutical Waste Incinerator

Portfolio item 6

Types of Pharmaceutical waste: Tablets, Capsules, Powder, Contaminated powder, Vials, Syringes, Ampoules, Baby food etc.

The Pharmaceutical waste generate from either Manufacturing process of tablet, Capsule or Expired Drugs after come from market. The Pharmaceutical waste have hazardous in nature and require for incineration by Pharmaceutical waste incinerator. The Pharmaceutical waste either in solid or Liquid.

The Pharmaceutical waste incinerator is designed to allow the max. combustion of the feed stocks, and also to subject the resulting gases and aerosol of fine particles to further combustion, reducing the content of soot and other pollutants in the exhaust.

Here the incineration process is carried out in two stages. The primary combustion chamber (P.C.C.) Burns the Pharmaceutical waste and the secondary combustion chamber (S.C.C.) ensures complete combustion of the volatile escaping from the primary chamber.

The Pharmaceutical waste incinerator is designed for the destruction of Pharmaceutical waste at the rate of 5 kg/hr to 1000 kg/hr. The incineration system shall consist of Stationary chamber as primary furnace, Secondary combustion chamber (post combustion chamber), Solid waste feeding system, Air pollution control system. Detailed data on waste such as waste quantity, quality, ultimate analysis and calorific value of waste was made available to form design basis for the proposed project.

According to waste disposal menu, thermal disposal of wastes shall be conducted in the incineration system. Incineration flue gas generated after secondary combustion chamber produced as a result of this operation will be quenched, cooled and cleaned in air pollution control system consisting of Quench Cooler, high pressure drop venturi scrubber, Packed Tower Scrubber, Moisture Separator to meet the desired emission norms.
