Waste for the primary burn chamber is loaded off the tip floor into the open top of Waste Loading Containers
Waste for the primary burn chamber is loaded off the tip floor into the open top of Waste Loading Containers. A ram inside the Container compacts the waste to a desired density not exceeding (17 lbs per cu. ft.). Weight sensors are integrated into the containers for accurate load size.
Two or more Loading Containers are filled in preparation for charging the primary chambers.
When the Waste Loading Container is full, the unit is moved to interface with the door opening of the primary chamber. Once in front of the primary chamber it is centered on the door opening and moved forward to interlock the Container with the primary chamber.
The door of the Waste Loading Container is opened. The compacted waste is ejected into the primary chamber by the ram (similar to a loaf of bread). The ram penetrates 12" into the chamber.
When the garbage is unloaded, the interlock is unhooked, and the empty Container is moved away from the primary chamber back to the tip floor. It is now available to act as a waste receiving container and can be pre-loaded at any time prior to the next burn cycle.
No pre-loading preparation is required when waste is received from a packer truck. White goods are not suitable.
Option 2 - Top Loading Method
This option uses a hydraulic system to raise the roof of the Primary Chamber vertically. The Operator selects to raise the roof using a hand switch. A conveyor system is located at an elevation that is slightly above the top of the Primary Chamber. The conveyor system is used to feed garbage into the Primary Chamber.
Once the roof (lid) is lifted, a conveyor system is used to feed garbage into the Primary Chamber until it is filled. The Operator has the ability to move the conveyor forward and backward to allow for an even fill.
Once the Primary Chamber is filled, the Operator selects to lower the roof by way of a hand operated switch. Automatic clamps lock down the roof for a tight seal. Sensors are used to ensure a tight seal. The Operator can now select to start the Oxidizer.
For the Skagway, Alaska installation, a site-specific solutions was engineered. This rolling conveyor system allows for automatic large capacity loading as part of an integrated design.
