Medical Waste Treatment

High-income countries generate on average up to 0.5 kg of hazardous waste per hospital bed per day; Low-income countries produce an average of 0.2 kilograms. However, in low-income countries, medical waste is not usually classified as hazardous or non-hazardous waste, making the actual amount of hazardous waste much higher. These hazardous wastes are toxic, infectious or radioactive. Some of the wastes generated include used needles, dressing materials, syringes, diagnostic samples, body parts, radioactive materials, medical equipment, medicines, chemicals and blood.

Poor disposal of medical waste can adversely affect workers, patients, waste handlers, the larger community, and the environment as a whole. They can seriously contaminate the environment, leading to infection and injury. It is critical that all medical waste is immediately isolated and properly disposed of.

 

Is proper medical waste treatment beneficial?

When garbage rots, it causes soil and water pollution, which affects human health. Proper disposal of medical waste reduces pollution and harm and does not emit greenhouse gases.

In order to effectively treat medical waste and reduce pollution, the corresponding treatment process can be selected according to the source, yield and characteristics. At the same time, the wish of medical waste resource utilization can also be realized. Minerals preserved in waste, including minerals other than wood and metals, can be easily recycled into other useful resources.

Using scientific waste disposal methods to realize the reuse of medical waste can not only reduce the harm to the environment and human beings, but also create profits for the relevant hospitals or medical institutions.

How to disposal medical waste?

Proper medical waste disposal ensures further disinfection and safety of medical facilities. We provide comprehensive medical waste treatment solutions for all types of healthcare facilities.

At present, the process of sterilization followed by crushing is adopted. This is currently the most widely used medical waste treatment technology in the country. The medical waste will be loaded into a special sterilization car and the whole into the sterilization room for sterilization. After treatment, the waste will be poured into the crusher for shape destruction treatment, and then compressed and reduced capacity after sending to landfill.

The medical waste is poured into the sterilizing car specially configured by the sterilizer, and then the sterilizing car is transported to the sterilizer. When the number of sterilizing cars in the sterilizer reaches the set value, the front door is closed, and sterilization is carried out according to the sterilization procedure set in advance by the sterilizer.After sterilization, the waste is hot, moist and does not cause odor problems.Usually, autoclaves are used in conjunction with physical processing, such as shredding or grinding.

 

This will be run through the following program:

A medical waste autoclave is a device that uses steam to sterilize equipment and other objects. This means that all bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores are inactivated by using temperatures so high that no bacteria can survive and therefore the items are considered safe for recycling or disposal.

They are most commonly used to treat only highly infectious waste, such as microbial cultures and sharps, and can handle up to 10t of medical waste per day. It does not deal with hazardous substances such as chemical waste, pharmaceutical waste and chemotherapy waste.

Because of this, the advantages of autoclaving are:

1. It’s efficient and environmentally friendly.

2. The technology is approved and allowed for infectious waste treatment in most countries.

3. It is easily understood and accepted by medical personnel and the general public.

4. Sterilization produces non-hazardous waste that can be classified as municipal waste by excluding hazardous substances that can be separated by selective collection.

5. Compared with incineration, autoclaving has a lower capital investment cost.

Autoclaves require high quality steam to operate, and existing connections to available steam sources should be perfect.

Steam is generated by steam generators and supplied as standard fittings by water purification (reverse osmosis system) and drainage systems. Boiler water, must be clean, soft. The boiler works immediately after power supply and water supply, with nearly 100% thermal efficiency — quiet, clean, more in line with environmental requirements, no atmospheric emission of NOx (nitrogen oxide).

Customized solutions for sizing, characterization and control of steam systems: We work with customers to identify potential savings and customize steam systems as needed to suit the conditions and processes of the site where our steam generators are used.

 

 

Medical Waste Shredder

The medical waste shredder is equipped with a motor drive shaft and a powerful shredding/crushing blade, which reduces the shredding waste to 1/5 of its original volume.Designed to minify biomedical waste such as sharps, dialyzers, syringes, paper, cloth, plastic and glass.

Adopts two suits in shredding machine blade rotor in relatively rotating equipment machine cavity with shrinkage two shaft to the principle of Angle to extrusion of material into the machine cavity, because of the special design into the blade Angle after the material being the blade edges fixed axis in the further create conditions for the contraction of Angle, after the material stress to material yield strength materials began to fracture between the blades, To complete the shredding effect.

If the shredder is overloaded and there is a foreign body in the cutting unit, the rotor stops and moves backwards, then returns to its original direction (auto-reversal), with a capacity of up to 2T/h.

Shredding is the process of shredding waste into small pieces. It helps prevent the reuse of non-communicable medical waste and ensures that waste is disposed of safely.

It provides a safe working environment for operators and technicians and excludes any possibility of cross-contamination.

 

Conveyor System

The conveyor belt system is generalists of waste treatment technology, through which a variety of materials can be moved between two points. Combined with our medical waste disposal system, this will create an automated track for transport and disposal. It will catch the waste produced by the shredder and transport it through the conveyor system directly to the baler system during operation, where it is packed and immediately removed.

The conveyor system achieves reliable delivery and trouble-free operation, ensures order and effectively reduces the need for manual labor.

 

Medical Waste Baler

After medical waste is disposed of, it is transported to a specific area for reprocessing, such as a landfill or incineration for fuel. Since shredded medical waste is loose material, it is difficult for you to dispose of it. So a medical waste baler is very helpful. By compression, medical waste can be compressed into a compact package, which is easy for you to store and transport.

Medical waste, both recyclable and non-recyclable, is costly to dispose of and transport if not compacted. The hydraulic medical waste baler can compress the bulk material into a neat package. This medical waste packaging process turns fluffy and bulky materials into regular shapes and dense bundles. Thus greatly reducing storage and transportation costs.
