How to Use the Drug Disposal Barrel Burner

drug incineration processDesigned to be economical and easy to use, this incinerator has a fairly simple incineration process. A general overview of the process is as follows:

Step 1: Start a fire within the unit through the use of either wood or charcoal.
Step 2: Once the flame is sufficient, the drum lid can be clamped shut.
Step 3: Add air to the unit to further increase the flame.
Step 4: After the unit reaches its initial operating temperature (400° F), drugs can be safely inserted into the unit. Included with each model are a set of drug disposal bags. Drugs can be placed in the disposal bags and then inserted into the incinerator through the hopper. Hoppers are designed with a lid and bottom slide. Once boxes are inserted, tilt the bottom to allow the boxes to slide into the unit.
Step 5: Let the materials incinerate. After the initial amount (3 bags), 1 box can be added to the barrel every 15 minutes.
Step 6: Once your burn is complete and the unit is cool, ash can be removed from the drum.
