TFD-1000 Thermal Friction Treatment System

Model Overview

The TFD-1000 Thermal Friction system is a continuous feed operation that safely and effectively transforms Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) into a non-hazardous, valuable fuel source.

  1. Material passes passing through a dual shear shredder
    • Ensures steady, consistent feed rate into the compression chamber
    • 2,000+ lbs. / hour capacity
  2. Material enters compression chamber  
    • Counter-rotating worm gears drive material through progressively narrowing apertures resulting in a thermodynamic release of heat.  
    • The process takes place within seconds, elevating material temperatures from ambient to over 130C.
  3. Material is passed through an Extended Residence Chamber which uniformly sterilizes material. 
    • Dry heat sterilization assures optimal moisture content (<5%) for the finished product, making it a highly efficient fuel source (>12,000 BTU/lb.)
