Monday, September 17, 2018 - 11:23

The medical waste destruction system using thermal plasma has been unveiled with the presence of the head of Presidential Deputy for Science and Technology, Center for National Technology Schemes, in Plasma Physics Research Lab, Science and Research Islamic Azad University.

According to an ISCA report, medical waste is of great importance due to its hazardous nature that can cause undesirable effects on humans and the environment, therefore, the Medical Waste Destruction System by Thermal Plasma has been designed and made by Science and Research IAU researchers, supported by Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology.

The system is equipped with plasma reactor, plasma torch placed inside the furnace, waste processing system, power supplies, HF cooling control system, clean air compressors, exhaust gas cleaning systems and molten slag collecting system.

Thermal plasmas have been employed in an increasing number of industrial applications since thirst development in the early 50s. Typical applications of this technology include plasma gasification, plasma MHD generators ,materials processing (spraying) , thermal plasmas have been extensively employed to treat residues or remediate environmental problems such as hospital waste, destruction of toxic materials, vitrification of asbestos, remelting of incineration ashes, treatment of galvanic sludges, mercury contaminated soils and many others
