Needle Burner

The “Needle Smelter” is a cost effective and efficient needle disposal system which can help eliminate the risk of “needle stick injuries” to health care workers.
It destroys needles with a temperature in excess of 1,600oC reducing them to powder. This temperature is only generated within the needle itself and the unit remains cool. The heat generated destroys needles within 1 second and the remaining sterile powder is collected in an easy to empty chamber at the front of the unit. The capacity of the chamber is approximately 3,000-4,000 destroyed needles. The “Needle Smelter” can process a variety of needle sizes from 16-30 gauge. The residue of the needle which remains after destruction is approx 2-3mm long and is blunt ended. The residual powder from the needles can be disposed of in a standard hazardous waste sack. Compact and easy to operate, the unit can be installed and operated in any healthcare setting. It is very economical consuming only 1KW of electricity to process 5,000 needles.
The “Needle Smelter” is more economical and safer than using hazard containers alone.
