The safe inactivation of contaminated exhaust-air from fermenters and autoclaves is unambiguously required by the German genetic technology safety regulations (GenTSV). In case of a biological contaminations the thermal treatment for inactivation is an accepted process.

This incinerator causes the contaminated exhaust-air to flow through a bulk of stainless steel balls which are heated to process temperature. The chamber size of the incinerator and the required contact time are selected on the basis of customer requirements such that a safe thermal inactivation is ensured.

The incinerator is designed for heating the following fluids:

I. Exhaust-air from

  • Fermenters
  • Autoclaves
  • Waste water ducts (for ventilation)

optionally usable for

  • Catalytic cleaning of air (zero air)
  • Flue-gas cleaning

The fluid to be heated and the application temperature mainly define the materials which can be used for the unheated and/or heated surfaces.

Materials of the bulk:

  • Corrosion-resistant stainless steel
  • Aluminium oxide

Materials of the wetted components:

  • Corrosion-resistant stainless steel
  • Heat-resistant stainless steel

The control system for the incinerators can be provided by customers; however, the required switching devices can also be supplied by heatsystems.

It is necessary to verify the temperature of the bulk and to keep it at the required level. In addition, the heating elements must be monitored for their proper functions by monitoring the heating current consumption and the internal temperature.

The temperature sensors for the temperature of the bulk can be replaced and/or calibrated without the necessity of opening the device.

The incinerators will be delivered insulated. The following insulation designs are available:

I. Insulation material

  • Mineral wool with a stainless steel metal jacket.
  • Diffusion-tight or gas-tight insulation

We are prepared to agree with you on the type and position of the fluid connections. The following connections are available:

I. Fluid connections

  • Standard flanges (DIN, ASME, SAE etc.)
  • Female or male thread connections
  • Clamp flanges
  • Sterile flanges
  • Dairy-type pipe connections
