A cremation furnace, also known as cremator or incinerator, is where a cremation takes place. Cremation furnaces are generally set up in chapels, cemeteries, funeral homes, or in stand-alone facilities. In addition, a facility which houses the real cremation furnace is known as a crematorium. A crematorium is where the bodies of humans or dead pets are burned in order to retrieve the ashes and give it to the family.
Cremation furnaces signify the latest advancements in control, combustion, and refractory engineering. Additionally, cremation furnaces are user friendly, ecological friendly, and a fuel efficient furnace with remote monitoring and troubleshooting functions to operate all the cremations in an efficient, simple, and effective manner. It can start automatically, which is visualized on the cremator touch screen. Furthermore, various adjustments can be made to the cremation furnace setting and it can also be handled manually during the process of cremation through the same touchscreen or from a cremation control center.
A cremation furnace is a high-technology process unit, which is used in order to lower the emissions and ensure minimum waste of thermal energy. The cremation is carried out at 1400 to 1800 ° temperature, which helps to reduce the body to its basic components and dried bone fragments.
The cremation process takes place in cremation chambers, also known as retort.
