Download PDF DOCUMENT 
This technical brief outlines the construction of a medical waste incinerator, which is a simple two-chamber natural-draught incinerator designed to be operated at temperatures of 800 degreed Celsius and higher. The incinerator has been designed so that it can be built on site, using standard building bricks or blocks and lined with refractory bricks. All the steel components, such as the loading door, the ash removal door and air inlet apertures can be made using basic workshop equipment.
