Definition of problem
The toxic health waste is a mass of contaminated waste which may contain syringes, needles, paper, plastics, glass or textiles. The anatomical waste should be treated seperatley by burning or incineration. Health waste resulting from nursing activity should be handled specificaly. The collection must be carried-out in separate containers, the contents must be neutralized safely on the hospital premises or must be sent to neutralizing plant outside the hospital.

Our solution
Before transporting the waste to public landfill sites, the waste must be sterilized and the syringes destroyed. The essence of our solution is that the contaminated waste is sterilized in our Clave equipment. The contaminated waste is lifted to the upper part of the autoclave into a very hard and resistant grinding machine. The waste including the unwanted parts are crushed and discharged into the lower part of the autoclave. Then adding steam and increasing pressure (3,8 bars) the temperature is increased to 138 C. The operation is fully automatic and the cycle lasts for 40 - 60 minutes.The final result is a crushed mass ( sterilization safety 6log10), which now may be treated as public waste. The volume decreases by 80% of the original waste volume. This is why we say that our method is secure and economic.

The equipment may be used safely, special trained personnel are not required, 6 Hour peronell training is enough. All in all the operation is fully automatic and is equipped with such safety systems, that eliminates all manual operation, like the autoclave maybe openned only if the temperature and pressure is normal, or the cycle can not be started untill proper closing of lid, and the waste can only be discharged after last phase of sterilizing cycle is over. The equipment does not require maintenance, apart from usuall lubricating and the cleaning of grinding claws when neccessary.

Technology of grinding
The main part of the system is the grinding unit. The experts dealing with contaminated waste are quite aware, that one of the most difficult problem is the grinding of unwanted articles, like screw-drivers or similar articles which are capable of ruining the grinding mechanism. Also is known the problem of jammed machine due to melted plastic. The mechanism of grinding claws, which has revers rotat,ng , eliminates these problems. Every two minutes the rotation changes. The parts of the grinding machine are made of the hardest metal presently known.
