The supplier is to provide a proposed list of spare parts for the incinerators. 
Mandatory spare parts must include as a minimum.
The forecasted feedstock loads, and daily loading rates are generally summarized as
• Mixed general, clinical and incinerable hazardous wastes with a wide range 
of calorific values and densities.  The majority of the wastes will be of a general 
municipal nature, with up to 15% by volume of medical wastes and up to 5% by 
volume of incinerable hazardous wastes.  The content of the combustible matter will be above 60% and moisture content below 30%.  The wastes will be crudely pre-mixed by selective loading from different waste 
streams prior to incinerator loading.
• Wastes either small enough to fit within a 60 litre waste sack or broken 
up or shredded to less than 300mm in size.
• Operation on a daytime shift basis, 5 days per week.
• An 8 hour daily operating cycle of ash removal, pre-heat and burn with 
continuous loading if required.  The automated burn completion and cool 
down cycle will take place overnight.
• The incinerators shall be capable of using diesel fuel as a supplemental 
fuel while the associated management equipment shall be capable of using electricity as the primary power source
• Also consider provision for meeting international emission standards.
Able to handle an average waste production of 600kg/day
“• Minimum load capacity: 100 kg

• Maximum load capacity: 300 kg
• Nominal burning rate: 70 – 120 kg/hr (= 560 – 960 kg per 8hour day)
All incinerators shall meet the following emission and operating standards:
• Combustion efficiency (C.E.) shall be at least 99.0%
• The combustion efficiency shall be computed as follows:
o C.E = (CO2 X 100) / (%CO2 +%CO)
Suitably designed pollution control devices such as scrubbers, filters or 
electrostatic precipitators, shall be installed/retrofitted with the incinerator to achieve emission limits.”
