Sorry. No free samples.
Yes, it is workable.
Some we have stock, some no stock. Usually 5 – 35 working days after confirm the order.
Complete combustion is achieved in the large, temperature-controlled, two-stage combustion chamber of the “Classic” series.
Over 99% of the volatile carbon produced during the combustion process is converted to carbon dioxide.
In addition, the opacity sensor is located at the bottom of the chimney to monitor the transparency of the exhaust gas.
Once the exhaust gas reaches 20% opacity, the PLC will automatically turn off the main burner and adjust the combustion air supply to slow down the combustion speed and prevent visible emissions from leaving the chimney.
According to the environmental protection requirements of different countries and regions, our flue gas filtration system can be installed.
At the same time, other pollutants are treated to meet environmental protection emission requirements.
The standard of OY series cremation furnaces is a proven and tested automatic operating system with color touch screen control.
Put the remains and coffin into the main combustion chamber of the cremator, set a timer and press the “Start” button to start the cycle.
The system was programmed to start a 45 second purge cycle before igniting the secondary chamber burner to begin the preheat cycle.
Once the pollution control room reaches the proper temperature, the main burner will be ignited and the cremation cycle will begin.
After the cremation is completed, the system enters the cooling cycle, at which time the burner is closed and the cremated ashes can be cleaned.
We guarantee that our equipment will have no workmanship defects within one years, and our employees provide technical and operational support around the clock.
The operation and maintenance manual describes the functions of all components and is very important for troubleshooting.
We have a complete series of replacement parts and main components, and our service department can provide services and repairs for all brands of cremation equipment.
After receiving the customer’s notification that the installation is complete, the technician will go to the facility to put the equipment into operation.
Technicians will spend up to three days on site to cure the refractory lining of the crematorium, start the device, adjust the air and gas settings, and inspect all systems.
To complete the start-up, technicians will perform cremation and train cremation personnel through simple operations.
It is important to provide cremation at start-up for training.
Yes it is.
As viewing the corpse being placed in the crematorium becomes more and more popular, families require that the equipment and premises be inspected before cremation. The overall appearance of the facilities and equipment is important.
The design of our OY series cremator is similar to modern electrical appliances.
The exterior walls and front panels are finished with powder coating and decorated with stainless steel.
The electric door and the drawer of the ash chamber are covered with stainless steel.
Especially the OYJ series cremator is suitable for families to watch the whole process of cremation, and provide families with parents and children to collect ashes.
Yes it is.
The standard configuration of all our cremation furnace models is a color touch screen, which displays the status of the cremation process through various screens available to the operator.
The start and stop controls for doors, fans and burners are located on the main screen.
Other screens display burner operation, combustion chamber temperature, temperature set point, elapsed time, and other functions.
The touch screen is installed on a rotating device that is flush with the line of sight and can be positioned from 0 degrees to 180 degrees for easy viewing.
Through various screens, operators can monitor more functions and have more control over the process.
Yes it is.
Our validated and field-tested PLC operating system monitors and controls combustion chamber temperature, combustion air supply and timing cycles for purification, preheating of pollution control rooms, cremation and cooling cycles.
The system is fully automatic, the operator only needs to select the time of the cremation cycle, and then press the “start” button to start the cycle.
Once started, every stage from preheating to cremation to cooling to shutdown will automatically enter the next stage.
Although the PLC is programmed at the factory, the standard procedure does allow the temperature set point, cycle time, and combustion air adjustment to be changed if necessary.
The automatic system limits the operator’s participation, while enabling the operator to visually check each stage and status of the process, as well as the combustion chamber temperature, combustion air, elapsed time, and burner operation through the touch screen control panel.
Why do we have cremation?
In order to understand cremation, we need to know some history about cremation.
In the archaeological record, evidence of human cremation can be traced back at least 40,000 years ago.
Mungo Lady is the remains of a partially cremated body found in Lake Mungo, Australia.
In the dry summer of 1969, a young scientist happened to encounter a cremated corpse here (later called “MungoLady”).
Six years later, the scientist discovered the “Mungo Man” buried in a pit filled with ochre and straw.
According to the general identification of scientists, the two wrecks have a history of about 40,000 years.
This discovery almost rewrites the history of human habitation in Australia, and is of great significance to the study of the origin of modern humans.
And in 1981 Mungo was included in the “World Heritage List” by the United Nations as one of the Willandra Lake Regions.
Other death rituals emphasized a method of disposing of a dead body-burial (burial) or exposure-which has gone through preferred periods throughout history.
In the Middle East and Europe, burial and cremation are evident in the archaeological records of the Neolithic Age.
What is today’s cremation?
In modern times, cremation of people or pets is a sanitary shortcut of “turning ashes to ashes and dust to dust”.
Cremation is the process of burning, evaporating and oxidizing the dead body into basic compounds such as gas, ashes and mineral fragments in a fire, leaving the appearance of dry bones in the crematorium.
Cremation is another method of funerals or post-funeral ceremonies, as an excellent green alternative to burying whole bodies in coffins, coffins or shrouds.
Cremated remains are also called “cremated remnants” or simply “ashes”. They do not pose a health risk. They can be buried or buried in memorial sites or cemeteries, or they can be kept by relatives and distributed in various ways.

The crematorium is also called: “incinerator”, “crematorium” and “crematorium”.
The crematorium uses a human crematorium.
The cremation or incineration of the corpse is carried out in a cremation furnace at a temperature between 1000 and 1300 degrees Celsius.
The intense heat of combustion helps to oxidize the body’s combustible substances into carbon dioxide and dry bone fragments.
The cremation process is carried out in the combustion chamber (also called the furnace) of the cremator, which is generally divided into a main combustion chamber and a secondary combustion chamber.
The combustion chamber is set to preheat to 800 degrees Celsius, and then the coffin containing the remains is put into the main combustion chamber from the front door of the cremator.
The remains are quickly put into the furnace through the mechanized conveyor to avoid heat loss.
The solution for sending the remains of a Chinese-made cremator into the cremation chamber is divided into a crawler conveyor and a trolley-type corpse conveyor.
Because of its energy efficiency and cremation filtration system, the cremator that can be bought in Chinese funeral homes is the best crematorium.
How is the body cremated in the cremation furnace?
During the incineration process, the corpse will be exposed to a string of flames produced by a stove burner fueled by natural gas, light diesel, electric or hybrid power.
When the body is placed in a coffin or container (preferably made of combustible material), the coffin will be burned.
Next, the heat will dry the body, burn the skin and hair, contract and scorch muscles, evaporate soft tissues, and calcify bones, eventually causing them to collapse.
The gas released during the cremation process is exhausted through the exhaust system.
The corpses were always cremated one at a time.
Except for mothers and children or twin babies.
The emissions are odorless because they are processed through a cremation filter system to separate the smoke and absorb odorous gases.
The crematorium is environmentally friendly
A good cremator is designed with an auxiliary afterburner to help completely burn the corpse.
Otherwise, cremation technicians may need to provide assistance.
The cremation remnants are then collected in trays or so-called ashes trays and cooled in an ash tray cooler for a period of time.
However, these cremation remnants also contain unconsumed metal objects such as screws, nails, hinges and other parts of coffins or containers.
In addition, the mixture may contain tooth remains, gold teeth, surgical screws, prostheses, implants, etc.
These objects are removed with the help of powerful magnets and/or tweezers after manual inspection.
All these metals will be disposed of later.
Mechanical equipment, especially pacemakers, need to be dismantled in advance because they may explode due to high temperatures and may damage the combustion chamber floor and cremation operators.
It is recommended to also remove jewelry items such as rings, wrist washes and other similar items as they may decompose during the cremation process.
In addition, the metal pieces are removed before the next process because they may damage the equipment used for crushing.
Finally, the dried bone fragments are further ground into a finer sand-like consistency.
The machines used for this kind of crushing are called cremation machines.
On average, it takes about one to three hours to cremate the human body, reducing it to 3-7 pounds of ashes.
Cremation ashes are usually powdery white.
These ashes were transferred to cremation urns and given to relatives or representatives of the deceased.
If you don’t have an ashes, the funeral home may put the ashes in a plastic box or a temporary default ashes container.
