Volkan 400 M

Designed, engineered and manufactured at our Worcester production facility in the UK the Volkan 400 M is a medium capacity top loading incineration system for the clean, quick and biosecure disposal of clinical and medical waste including type 4 pathological waste (red bag waste). Extremely robust and constructed using the highest quality materials the Volkan 400 M is fuel efficient and easy to operate making it ideal for use by primary medical services, hospitals, surgical units, private cosmetic surgery practices and veterinary practices.

As with all models in the Volkan Range the Volkan 400 M is supplied with an integral secondary chamber as standard and fully conforms to EU By-Products Regulation (ABPR) (EC) No 142/2011. Due to the nature of the waste streams and dependent upon local legislation, it may be necessary to include additional emissions control as this falls under IED (formerly known as WID) regulations, if this is required then Waste Spectrum can provide you with further information plus energy recovery options, if required.

Ideally suited for:

  • Veterinary waste
  • Type 4 pathological waste (red bag waste) including;
    Surgical Waste, Injection Needles/Sharps bins/Rubber Gloves/Tubing, Bandages/Dressings/Tissues, Medical/Blood Plasma Remains/Infected bodies, Laboratory Waste, Plastic Samples & Cloths and infectious animal bedding/faeces

Machine Construction

Integral to each model in the Volkan Range is the unique Waste Spectrum monolithic casting system:

  • Ensures maximum strength and reliability in comparison to bricked linings
  • Materials expand and contract at the same rate as opposed to bricks and mortar
  • Prevents liquid materials / bloods / animal fats penetrating the lining which prolongs the life of the incinerator
  • Insulating board is used to reduce heat loss
  • Maintains an even working temperature for the refractory
  • Our Stainless Anchor System maintains the integrity of the lining


  • Easy to operate – Full training provided
  • Top loading design provides easy access via a counterbalance lid
  • Temperature controlled pulse fired burners for optimal efficiency
  • Low thermal mass linings for minimal heat loss
  • Supplied with higher grade concrete to withstand increased temperatures and the abrasive nature of medical waste
  • PLC timer controls with automatic burner shut off function and rapid ignition pulse fired burners for low running costs
  • Burns up to 40kgs an hour
  • Static or mobile options available
  • Can be loaded whilst in operation, maximising the inherent thermal efficiency of our monolithic lining
  • Electrical Supply – works on a single phase 16 Amp 230-volt supply, fitted with a 3 pin round Euro plug
  • A stainless steel, single skin exhaust stack is supplied as standard

Optional Extras

  • Ash Door
  • Additional chimney sections
  • USB Data Logger

Fuel Options
