Mobile incinerators are useful in many different situations since the incinerator can be moved to different sites and get to locations that others simply cannot. Mobile incineration is often used for evidence destruction, drug disposal, emergencies, remote location access, and other situations where portability is key. Let’s take a look at the different types of mobile incinerators and the advantages of each.
The first type of mobile incinerator is the trailer mounted mobile incinerator. This type of incinerator is mounted on a trailer, making it highly portable. Trailer mounted mobile incinerators are often used in remote locations or for disaster relief since they can be moved to wherever they are needed. Another advantage of trailer mounted mobile incinerators is that they can be used in a variety of weather conditions, making them ideal for use in all sorts of environments. Firelake Manufacturing now has a P50-SC8 Mobile unit that is a great option for most mobile incineration needs (Pictured).
Containerized Mobile Incinerator
Another type of mobile incinerator is the containerized mobile incinerator. This type of incinerator is mounted on a trailer or skid and enclosed in a metal container. Containerized mobile incinerators are often used in hazardous waste disposal since they can safely contain the waste while it is being incinerated. Containerized mobile incinerators can be larger than trailer mounted models, making them more stable but bulky.
Self-Contained Mobile Incinerator
Finally, the self-contained mobile incinerator, is sometimes called a burn barrel. This type of incinerator is a complete unit that does not need to be mounted on a trailer or skid and is smaller in size. These smaller portable incinerators often do not last as long as the heavier-duty mobile incinerators that are built to last through heavy use. In the past they have been used by law enforcement for evidence disposal but now the Department of Environmental Services recommends police departments instead use large municipal incinerators, which have been approved as environmentally safe. When choosing a mobile incinerator, it is important to consider safety codes for your city and state. Firelake Manufacturing also works with its customers to find the model of incinerator that will meet the safety codes required in their area.
