PTDR-100 System

PEAT's PTDR-100 waste-to-energy system is an ideal, turn-key solution for small to medium-sized waste generators looking for stable and flexible on-site solutions to their waste management challenges. The PTDR-100 system provides a permanent, fully self-contained platform for facilities seeking an efficient, environmental and economical terminal medical waste and bio waste treatment and disposal solution.


System components
  • Feeding system consisting of a ram feeder and a cart-lifter/dumper (Liquid waste feeding optional)
  • Plasma Reactor
  • Secondary Reaction Chamber
  • Gas Conditioning and Cleaning System consisting of a venturi scrubber, packed bed tower, cooling water loop (optional cooling tower supplied if not available at client site) and indirect heat exchanger
  • ID fan with breaking resistance and VFD
  • 100 kWe Plasma graphite electrode Torch System with an insulated gate bipolar transistor power supply
  • Air Compressor
  • Syngas storage/accumulation system (for Syngas Operational Mode)
  • Syngas Energy Recovery System (Optional):
    • 25 or 50 kWe gas engine(s), or
    • Steam Boiler, or
    • Hot Water Heating System
  • Power Panel
  • Process Control System with a PLC and SCADA
Feedstock requirements

Solid wastes are batch fed (up to 21 hours per day). The feeding system is designed to accommodate 30-gallon (113 liters) waste bags, 250mm x 250mm x 250mm (10-inch x 10-inch x 10-inch) boxes or waste in packed loose solid form. The maximum size of any waste material which can not be twisted/bent can not be more than 200 mm (~8 inches); this means that any part cannot be longer than 200 mm. The feed door to the system will have clear opening of 300 mm (~ 1 ft) on both sides

Utilities and labor
  • Electric supply available: maximum connected load of 150 KWe, voltage/Hz as per local standards), 3Phase, (actual consumption significantly lower)
  • Process water capacity of approximately 150 liters/hr (~5.5 ft3)
  • Cooling Water Supply: 40 m3/hr (~1,415 ft3) with a temperature difference of 7°C (45°F)
  • Nitrogen gas (used for feeding system blanketing and other safety operations): 250 liter (~ 66 gallons) Nitrogen Storage tank (stored at a pressure of 3 kg/cm2 or 43 PSI), consumption during normal operations at 3.5 nm3/hr
  • Natural Gas or LPG capacity of approximately 10kg/hr (0.5 MMBTU) during pre-heating and a maximum of 2 kg/hr (0.1 MMBTU) during normal operations (actual consumption significantly lower)
  • The automated process control system allows the PTDR-100 to be operated by a single trained operator. Another auxiliary employee may be utilized to assist with materials handling (waste receiving/feeding and end product collection).
System footprint

The main PTDR system sits on two 10m x 2m skids (approximately 33 ft x 6.5 ft) with a high point of 4.5m (15 ft). An optional third skid (5m x 2m or approximately 16.5 x 6.5 ft) is provided, which houses the syngas accumulation system and syngas energy recovery equipment (if utilized).

Warranty data

PEAT will warranty the waste-to-energy system for 12 months from the date of commissioning. The Warranty will be against the manufacturing of equipment and components defects. The warranty does not cover spares, refractory lining, thermocouple and transmitters, other consumables and chemicals.  The warranty does not cover equipment or its parts that are damaged due to client's cause, directly or indirectly
