ECO-FRIENDLY CREMATORIUM

Air pollution control system

The department has installed air pollution control system at various crematoriums in Pune. This is the alternative to traditional open burning system. The basic function of the system is to reduce the pollution. The gas produced after burning the body is passed through a water-scrubber where its carbon content gets absorbed and filtered gas is released into air. By use of this system, approximately 40 percent wood saving (in crematorium) could be achieved. The system is in place at Vaikuntha, Hadapsar, Dhankawadi, Katraj, Yerewada and Kailas crematoriums.

 

ELECTRICAL CREMATORIUM

Electrical Crematorium consists of :

  1. Moveable Trolley
  2. Furnace
  3. Gas Cleaning System with Venture Scrubber
  4. Chimney 100 feet
  5. Controls

Functioning of Electrical Crematorium :

  • The beginning process of cremation in the Electric Cremation is called incineration.
  • The furnace or incinerator is a high powered furnace.
  • The body will be located in a combustion chamber called a retort.The crematory(also known as retort) is lined with refractory bricks that can withstand high fluctuations in temperature, but furnace chambers also have holes at the bottom.
  • The Electric crematorium is built with double chamber cremation furnace with a strong cremation bed and secondary air holes.
  • In the Electric Crematorium, the electrical connections do not need any particular fittings and a simple 220 Volts electrical outlet is all that is required.
  • Electric cremation furnace capacity is 54 Kw. The Electric heating coil is made up of NICROME 80/20 in the form of 25 mm dia coil with terminal rods and the entire furnace heating coil system (Coil holding brick wall) will be bonded with the side walls.
  • The cremation furnace is constructed with high quality alumina refractory bricks, fire bricks, insulation bricks, arch bricks, various size and types of slabs and bonded with high quality castable, fire clay and mortars with a specific type of curing to the furnace to withstand the temperature up to 1200 degree centigrade.
  • The fitting of devices that prevent any dispersion from the cremation chamber have eliminated smoke and odors.
  • The cremation gets completed in about 60 to 90 minutes maximum depend upon the body size and other biological reasons.
  • The hazardous gas and other substances are piped out from cremation chamber and cleaned by venture scrubber with water treatment and finally the hot air is being discharged into 100 feet height chimney.
  • Electric Crematorium system has necessary controls,auto on-off, cut off switches and other necessary controls for the safety of cremation.

 

 

GAS CREMATORIUM

LPG Gas Crematorium consists of :

         1. Cremation Furnace

         2. LPG Gas Combustion System with Venture Scrubber

         3. Chimney 100 feet

         4. Controls

      5. The LPG gas automatic burners are built with fan, motor, pump, ignition transformer and electrode, flame sensor, sequence controller, gas solenoid valve, air pressure switch and gas pressure switch

Functioning Of Gas Crematorium :

  • A movable trolley places the body in the cremation platform in cremation furnace of the LPG Gas Crematorium.
  • Combustion blowers and air blowers are switched on and then the primary and secondary burners in the cremation chambers switched on to get the furnace temperature at about 850 degree.
  • By the movable trolley the body will be placed upon the cremation platform in the cremation chamber. The cremation door would then keep closed in the LPG Gas Crematorium.
  • LPG Gas Crematorium consists of primary and secondary chambers.
  • The LPG Gas crematorium is built with double chamber cremation furnace with a strong cremation bed and secondary air holes. The cremation furnace is constructed with high quality alumina refractory bricks, fire bricks, insulation bricks, arch bricks, various size and types of slabs and bonded with high quality castable, fire clay and mortars with a specific type of curing to the furnace to withstand the temperature up to 1200 degree centigrade.
  • The body, would incinerate in the primary and the secondary chamber between the temperature 850 and 1100 degree and the cremation get completed in about 60 to 90 minutes maximum depend upon the body size and other biological reasons.
  • Gas Cleaning System is also equipped with venture scrubber.
  • The hazardous gas and other substances are piped out from cremation chamber and cleaned by venture scrubber with water treatment and finally the hot air is being discharged into the 100 feet height chimney.
  • LPG Gas Crematorium system has the ash collection system to collect ash and remains for further customs.
  • LPG Gas Crematorium system has necessary controls,auto on-off, cut off switches and other necessary controls for a safety LPG gas crematorium.
  • The automatic LPG gas burners can be hooked with external control signal for total automation like PLC system, burner trip signal for alarm and hooter can be given from the burner sequence controller and burner fan can be by passed with a separate switch without any modification.
