MEDICAL WASTE:A WORLDWIDE ISSUE
FOR PUBLIC HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT
Health care activities protect and save lives.But what about the waste and by-products that they generate?Biomedical waste management process can be expensive and difficult to set up for health care centers.An unsafe management can cause major issues:
1.Medical waste contains potentially harmful microorganisms which could infect people
2.The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 40% of hepatitis cases and 2,5% of HIV cases worldwide are caused by occupational exposure
3.Treatment and disposal of healthcare waste may release pathogens and toxic pollutants
World Health Organization has for the first time declared the corona virus outbreak a pandemic.
With Global spread of the novel coronavirus pneumonia virus, the spread of sudden infectious diseases is very rapid, and the amount of medical waste will be increased with the spread of virus. There are 80,000 patients in China alone, In 2020, 165,000 tons of mask waste will be added. It is predicted that the output of medical waste will increase by more than 25% in 2020.
The original medical waste disposal institutions have limited capacity to dispose of, a large amount of medical waste containing virus and bacteria can not be completely sterilized, which will cause catastrophic consequences.
Medical waste treatment with microwave disinfection equipment can
solve the problem of medical waste infecting humans and polluting the environment
Microwave disinfection technology principle
Microwave antivirus is the result of microwave thermal effect and biological effect, which can make microwave energy and bacteria directly interact, rapid sterilization.
1.The thermal effect of microwave energy:Under certain intensity microwave field, the bacteria will be due to the absorption of polarized molecules can increase the temperature of microwave, so that the protein deformation, loss of biological activity.The thermal effect of microwave mainly plays the role of rapid temperature sterilization.
2.Non-thermal effects of microwave energy:High frequency electric fields change the polarized molecular structure, resulting in the loss of vitality or death of proteins and physiologically active substances in the microbes, and the special effects of conventional physical sterilization.
Microwave disinfection technology uses a microwave sterilization time is short, fast, penetrating ability, inside and outside the temperature uniformity, saving energy, disinfection effect of good characteristics.
In the microwave field, the cell structure is destroyed, destroying the cell inside and outside the material balance, causing cell death.
The combination of microwave and water vapor makes the disinfection effect more effective.
Microwave disinfection does not produce dioxin and malodorous gases, no waste water.
Pre-shredding with core-hearting microwave disinfection technology

Assembly and start-up
3-5 days assembly - start-up & training with our engineers
1.Equipment integration design, independent research and development of software, full computer control, each processing environment can be controlled and monitored, occupies a small area, fully enclosed structure, low noise.
2.The equipment is highly automated. It only needs one person to operate the whole set of equipment, which saves labor costs. It does not need to carry heavy boxes or bags, and does not directly contact the human body. It puts waste into the cart and connects it to the MDU device. The loading mechanism is designed to accept various standard carts.
3.Low energy consumption, the whole set of equipment only electric drive to deal with 3 tons of medical waste per day, It only takes 120 L of water to dispose of a ton of medical waste. the total installed power is only 75 kW. saving operating costs. We have obtained CE certification and ISO9001-2015 certification .
4.By grinding the waste into tiny particles through a grinding system specially designed for medical waste, medical waste can be handled flexibly and continuously without waiting. After microwave treatment, inert garbage can be discharged directly with municipal domestic garbage by 20% reduction in weight and 70% reduction in volume. The equipment can be shut down at any time, minimizing energy consumption and personnel.
5.Compared with the incinerator for medical waste treatment, the highest temperature of microwave sterilization is about 100 degrees Celsius, and the waste stream is effectively treated at lower temperature, thus eliminating harmful air emissions. Incinerator for plastic products will produce a large number of dioxins, causing serious air pollution.
6.Compared to high temperature autoclave, microwave sterilization only needs a little water, The screw conveyor pipe makes the broken medical waste mix evenly with water vapor. The sterilization effect is thorough. After the treatment of dry inert municipal waste, there is no sewage discharge. The high temperature autoclave will produce odorous gas, which needs a lot of water and energy, and will discharge a lot of wastewater.
7.There are two kinds of microwave disinfection equipment: Centralized treatment equipment and Mobile type treatment equipment. Vehicle-mounted equipment can be used for emergency treatment of animal corpses such as avian influenza. When an epidemic occurs in farms, trucks can tow equipment to deal with it.
