Service and Site Survey:
A site survey will identify site-specific installation requirements, including flue, ventilation and hot water offtake.

The units are supplied with a full installation service from utilities present at the point of installation. This involves the following:

  • All fittings required for connection to utilities
  • Pipework, connections and cabling for water, drain and electricity.
  • Initial commissioning cycles to ensure correct performance


  • Chamber volume: 100 litres (without basket)
  • Load capacity: typically up to 8kg or 10kg for waste with high water content

Waste types

The unit destroys all types of organic (carbon-containing) solid waste. Wastes may be loaded loose or in bags. Metal and glass are not destroyed and remain in a basket in the base of the unit.

The unit is not designed for full loads of fats or liquids or for batteries or radioactive wastes. There are limitations on the acceptable proportions of some materials. For queries on proportions or for questions about hazardous wastes please contact PyroPure Ltd.


Cycle time, energy and water usage are adjusted automatically and vary according to the characteristics of the waste load.


Energy Recovery

Energy in the form of heated water is recovered from the PyroPure process. The energy output is dependent on the waste type and weight of the load. 


The unit is not an incinerator (EA ruling January 2010) but conforms to the H1 Horizontal Risks Assessment Criteria in terms of emissions and other environmental impact. Installations are subject to Environment Agency and Water Authority approvals.
