PCB Destruction Services With Kinectrics Mobile Processing Unit (MPU)

Kinectrics Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) for PCB Destruction - an efficient, safe and convenient solution for PCB management and other contaminant processing.

Kinectrics’ Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) can destroy up to 1.5 metric tonnes of Askarel per day, processing both high and low-level PCB waste streams simultaneously. 

Combined with commercially-available decontamination technologies for soil or electrical equipment such as capacitors and  transformers, Kinectrics’ low-temperature process for liquid PCB destruction or other POP wastes, allows the complete elimination of toxic material without using incineration or other high-temperature alternatives. 

Effective Treatment of Toxic Waste

Kinectrics offers effective waste disposal techniques.  When treating low-level PCB-contaminated insulating oil, Kinectrics’ low-temperature MPU destroys PCBs completely, rendering more than 95% equivalent-to-new oil suitable for use in electrical equipment, along with a small amount of non-toxic, conventionally disposable sludge, consisting mainly of sodium chloride, sodium hydroxide and harmless petroleum by-products.

High-level PCB liquid wastes, which are PCB waste streams from thermal desorption systems or other solid decontamination processes, can be efficiently destroyed using Kinectrics’ PCB treatment and sodium-based chemical destruction process.

In destroying other halogenated toxic materials, Kinectrics’ low temperature process efficiently converts the toxic material into benign and / or re-usable compounds.

Integrated PCB Business Services

Kinectrics offers Integrated PCB Services, PCB decontamination of electrical equipment and retro filling technologies.

In addition, we provide PCB Business Opportunities, complete PCB decontamination business setup and operation services, engineering design and construction. 

Comprehensive Client Benefits

Economical

  • Price competitive with other destruction processes
  • Eliminates or reduces high cost typical of the public consultation process required for incineration
  • Eliminates additional expenditures for the replacement of mineral oil, if the original PCB-contaminated oil is incinerated
  • Lowers costs by allowing simultaneous destruction of high and low-level PCBs
  • Eliminates the need for long-term PCB storage and avoids the associated financial risks of fire or leakage
  • Avoids high insurance premiums for PCB transport

Environmentally-friendly

  •  Minimizes volume of conventionally disposable post-production by-products (non-toxic)
  • Produces essentially zero airborne emissions
  • Enables recycling of oil in electrical equipment
  • Permanently eliminates PCBs and other POPs from the environment
  • Operates safely and reliably (technology proven for more than 20 years)
  • Eliminates spill and emission risks associated with transportation

Convenient

  • Convenience of on-site treatment with mobile or fixed facilities
  • No special site preparation when using mobile systems
  • Small space requirements
  • Short set-up and demobilization times
  • Larger capacity than more cumbersome mobile thermal methods
  • Greater acceptance by the public than other thermal alternatives
