Design considerations:

The interior rack grating has been redesigned to be fully and easily replaceable in the field. Bu rn through and distortion is a natural occurrence using steel for grating material. This is referred to as being a "consumable" item. All new (2009 and above) units will have the replaceable grate design. It is a rack that can be ordered and shipped when the rack assembly needs to be replaced.

The cost for the kit is $800 delivered to anchorage or Fairbanks. The price may change so call for pricing and for the size and weight of the kits for shipping.

The burn units are designed for "batch" burns of household trash once or twice a day. If the units are loaded  and burned hot in a continuous manner (back to back),  the grating burns red hot and can suffer damage prematurely. Any use outside of the recommended parameters will void the 6 month warranty.

It is possible to retrofit older units which will accommodate the new design. But this will entail weld cutting and fitting of some components. Call Chis @ 907 590 7363 for more information.

Multiple Units


Kodiak Units

Multible Units would serve larger growing communities.  The added advatages of multible Units is that when one Unit is fired the other would be able to accept waste.  Using this managed technique could increase effectiveness of the landfill site.
