Medical waste, also known as infectious or biomedical waste, is any waste that contains infectious materials or potentially infectious substances such as blood. Of particularly concern are sharps such as scalpel blades, needles, glass pipettes, or any other waste material that may cause an injury during handling. At present, the disposal and dumping of medical waste is a major issue.
There are some ways for medical waste processing, like sanitary landfill, incineration by pyrolysis, autoclave sterilization, chemical disinfection, microwave sterilization, thermal decomposition, and plasma process, etc. Medical waste shredded by specialized medical waste shredder is a crucial way for medical waste processing.
Lifter+Shredder+Secondary Shredder+Conveying System
Under Siedon’s one-stop medical waste disposal shredding processing technology, medical waste will be lifted to the first stage medical waste shredder. It will save labor cost and prevent the harmful medical waste from spreading to the human body and environment in the meantime. Siedon provides two shredding procedures for medical waste processing. First is primary crushing via primary shredder and then the shredded material will be transferred to the secondary medical waste shredder. After that, medical waste will be qualified (normally smaller than 50mm) for incineration, what is help to improve the burning efficiency. Siedon’s shredder knives are wear-resistant and tough enough to deal with 316 stainless steel and alloy scalpels. After all, safe and environmentally-friendly waste management options should be selected in order to ensure that people directly involved with medical equipment and waste are properly protected and are not at any undue risk.
