What are hospital incinerators used for?

Hospitals produce a significant amount of waste daily, including medical, pharmaceutical, and pathological waste. Ensuring the safe disposal of this waste is crucial to prevent the spread of infections and protect the environment. That’s where hospital incinerators play a vital role. As a leading manufacturer of medical incinerator machines, Addfield is committed to promoting safe and sustainable waste management practices in healthcare settings.

Our hospital incinerators are specially designed to thermally treat and dispose of various types of medical waste generated by healthcare facilities. These incinerators are equipped with advanced technology to safely and efficiently process hazardous and infectious waste, such as used needles, surgical materials, and contaminated items. The process involves high-temperature combustion, ensuring that harmful microorganisms are destroyed and harmful emissions are minimised.

The primary purpose of hospital incinerators is to reduce the risk of infections. By subjecting medical waste to intense heat, harmful pathogens are eliminated, preventing the spread of diseases and protecting healthcare workers and the public.


Addfield’s medical incinerators are designed with the environment in mind. They adhere to strict emission standards, ensuring that the incineration process produces minimal air pollutants and greenhouse gases, contributing to a cleaner and greener planet.

Hospital incinerators help healthcare facilities manage their waste efficiently. By reducing the volume of waste through incineration, facilities can save on storage and transportation costs, promoting a more sustainable waste management system.
