MediBurn Control Panel
The electronic Mediburn control system automatically goes through the burn cycle with minimal operator input. The upper chamber pre-heats before the waste is burnt. Automatic door locking feature for safe loading and unloading of ash. Multi-lingual support is available.
The control panel is used to control and monitor the incinerator. The display can be switched to show either the remaining incineration time or the temperature of the incineration gases. The control panel has indication lamps that show when each diesel burner is in operation.
The automated system makes using MediBurn as easy as using a household microwave. The solid-state design makes it easier to service in the field (compared to PLC units).
Drug Drop-Off Box
Elastec manufactures drug drop-off boxes that can be used in conjunction with either our Drug Terminator or Mediburn for take-back programs. The boxes can be set up at locations to collect expired and unused prescription drugs so that they can safely be incinerated. Our drug drop-off boxes can be painted or wrapped with graphics to suit the needs of your location. Each box has a lockable deposit door, retrieval door for emptying, and 4 bolt anchor holes in the base. Contact us for more information.
