We offer a range of incinerators suited for virtually any waste type,
plus custom design for special applications.

Rotary incinerators are generally specified when there are large quantities of difficult to handle wastes, such as medical and general waste, animal remains, or indeed any high-moisture wastes including sludges, pastes and sewage. Generally speaking rotary incinerators are specified for large-scale waste disposal requirements. They are particularly suited for continuous uninterrupted operation with throughput capacities that can range from 100kg/hour up to 4000kg/hr. Rotary incinerators are ideal for continuous 24/7 service and will operate with non-stop efficiency and with the minimum of supervisory support.
Waste materials of this type, with a large liquid content, are especially difficult to deal with efficiently in a conventional static incinerator chamber because the heavy, moisture-laden load will tend to slump into a solid cake on the floor of the chamber. This dictates that it will be almost impossible to incinerate effectively. As a result it leaves a mass of only partially combusted waste that has to be laboriously removed and disposed of.
By contrast a rotary incinerator has a continuously rotating chamber that constantly lifts and tumbles the waste content. This perpetual movement ensures that there is no possible risk of solidification. In addition the tumbling and separating action also creates a greater surface area, while hot air is constantly forced through the waste material to accelerate the destruction process thereby ensuring maximum combustion efficiency and high quality ash.
With constantly rising energy costs and increasing pressure to minimize the environmental impact of energy production, it makes perfect sense to investigate any viable means of exploiting existing resources.
One of the ways we can help companies to achieve these goals is to utilize the heat generated by their waste incineration process in order to provide valuable alternative energy forms that can be subsequently employed within other areas of the business
Quite simply when you incinerate waste materials you generate a great deal of heat. Therefore it makes sound business sense to harness this paid-for commodity and convert it into useful second-generation energy sources such as steam, hot water, hot air or even electricity. These can then subsequently be used either to heat your buildings or become an essential part of a production process.
At Matthews Environmental Solutions we have for many years been at the forefront of energy recovery technology and we can advise and assist our customers to capitalize on this valuable resource. We not only help to reduce energy costs, but very often also improve process efficiencies and provide numerous benefits both to productivity and the working environment.
As part of our energy recovery systems expertise we are able to help customers generate:
In many instances we can also assist customers to use the latent power of their incineration process to generate Electricity. This can subsequently be used as an on-site power source and/or as a profitable commodity to be sold to an off-site energy distributor.
