Ketek’s Cyclonator Incinerators – manufactured to customer specifications at our fabrication plant in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – are successfully eliminating solid waste at more than 300 locations around the world.
Also known as thermal oxidizers, Ketek’s incinerators are the preferred solution for waste disposal in dozens of communities and at hundreds of oilfield, mining, hospital and military sites. They reduce or eliminate the cost of transporting waste to central landfills and the risks of handling hazardous materials.
Headquartered in Alberta, Ketek has 40 years of experience in manufacturing, assembling and maintaining incinerators. Combined with waste-management practices for source separation, we offer full-service solutions to any solid-waste-handling needs a client may have.
Forced Air Incinerators
Ketek’s Forced Air incinerators destroy solid waste (Types 1-2-3) efficiently and reduce the risk of contamination to the environment. They’re safe, environment friendly and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) when compared with many other waste disposal options. Optional additions include: propane or natural gas upon request, Ketek proprietary fuel saver option, cold climate package, artic, fuel line, incinerator rake and fire extinguisher, ash bins, shrink wrap.
Controlled Air Incinerators
The Controlled Air design includes a primary chamber with exhaust gases passing through a secondary chamber for the re-burning of any residual harmful gas components. This secondary combustion is sized for controlling reaction time and destruction temperatures before safe release to the atmosphere. Dioxins, furans, and similar gaseous pollutants are destroyed at operating temperatures of between 650 and 1,000 oC with a reaction time of two seconds and excess oxygen of more than six per cent.
Sectors of Application
OIL AND GAS
Biohazardous & Regulated Medical Waste Disposal
Biomedical waste, scalpels, other sharps, pathological and chemotherapy waste are of significant concern to hospitals and communities around the world. The improper handling of such waste can jeopardize the health of staff, patients, disposal workers and anyone else coming into contact with the hazardous materials discarded by hospitals and other healthcare sites.
Some 20 to 25 per cent of the total waste generated by healthcare establishments is regarded as hazardous and may create a variety of health and environmental risks if not managed and destroyed in an appropriate manner. Incineration is the only method providing complete destruction and neutralization of the medical waste.
Cyclonator Incinerators are in use at dozens of medical facilities.
Agricultural and Animal Incinerators
Incinerators can be a cost-effective way for farmers and ranchers to manage the disposal of agricultural and animal waste.
Incineration allows farmers to handle disposal on their own land quickly and efficiently, reducing biosecurity risks from such diseases as BSE (mad cow disease), Foot and Mouth Disease, Avian Flu and Coccidiosis.
