Small Scale Incinerators
Helios (formerly known as Vulcan) Small Scale Incinerators are a reliable way to dispose of solid waste, pollution, drugs, trash, medical waste, and other contaminated materials. Designed as a reliable small scale system, these incinerators are commonly used for general site refuse, evidence disposal, and solid waste disposal. Models include the Helios 0.3 Dual Chamber Unit and the Law Enforcement Little Helios Drug Barrel Burner. All portable and small incinerators are made in the USA.

||Police Station Little Helios
Little Helios Police Barrel Burner (formerly known as Little Vulcan) is a small scale system designed specifically for the disposal of confiscated materials by law enforcement, police stations, and other government officials. Using a stainless steel 55 gallon drum (available for sale with our without drum), these incinerators are commonly used to dispose of solid waste materials such as:
- Confiscated Drugs
- Illicit/Illegal Substances
- Seized Evidence

CFR Title 40 Part 60: Requirements and Exemptions for Small Scale Incinerators
CFR 40 60.2887
Units that combust contraband or prohibited goods: Your incineration unit is excluded if the unit is owned or operated by a government agency, such as police, customs, agricultural inspection, or a similar agency, to destroy only illegal or prohibited goods such as illegal drugs, or agricultural food products that can not be transported into the country or across state lines to prevent bio-contamination. The exclusion does not apply to items either confiscated or incinerated by private, industrial, or commercial entities.
Small Scale Dual Chamber Units, also known as Fixed Hearth Units, are a great option for locations looking to dispose of small amounts of waste or for locations needing to meet specific emission requirements.

Common Small Scale Incinerator Uses:
- Portable Incinerators for Evidence Disposal
- Drug Disposal
- Medical Waste Disposal Incinerators
- Electronics Disposal
- Small Scale Incineration for Pharmacy
- Animal Waste
- Waste Removal
Dual Chamber Small Scale Incinerators work by incinerating materials first in the primary chamber and then oxidizing by-products from that chamber for a second time before emissions enter the atmosphere.

Medical Waste Incinerators
Medical Waste Incinerators are a favorite for clincis and small hospitals on islands or remote locations. Incinerators have been successfully used for waste from hospitals, clinics, labs, veterinarian offices and more. Read more about medical incinerators and emission comparisons.
For some police stations, drug and evidence disposal may require a larger scale operation. Review our economical incinerator ideas. For these areas, small dual chamber incinerators can help to safely dispose of evidence from multiple counties or for large scale disposal requirements. For more information please view our portable incinerator for drug disposal or Portable Incinerator to Destroy Drugs pages.

Using Incinerators to Help Safely Dispose of Waste
Resource Conservation and Recovery ActThe Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted by Congress in 1976 and amended in 1984. The act's primary goal is to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste pollution disposal. In addition, RCRA calls for conservation of energy and natural resources, reduction in waste generated, and environmentally sound waste management practices.
A close second to recycling, combustion has proven to be very viable for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) reduction and has helped reduce the amount of landfill space needed. Large Combustion facilities now burn MSW at high temperatures, reducing waste volume, generating electricity, and providing heat.
We have adopted the same proven system with our small scale incinerators; we can create free heat to warm a building with our Heat Recovery Unit. It's easy to use, too. Simply install a Heat Recovery unit outside, where it pulls in fresh, clean air, and passes through the heat exchanger, then the powerful air blowers force the air into existing ducting to warm your building!
