ERS fulfills 2 ways of sterilization; direct high-pressure sterilization and indirect high-pressure sterilization. The direct high-pressure sterilization is a common way which is also used for a conventional autoclave. In this direct way, moist heat in the form of saturated steam under pressure directly touches input waste inside the device. What makes ERS different from the conventional autoclave is the indirect sterilization method ERS can realize. This indirect method is exercised by heating ERS’s machine body by saturated steam at 2 atmosphere, keeping inside temperature to be 121 ℃ without wetting input waste.
Frequently asked questions
What is the strong point of ERS compared to a conventional autoclave?
How many workers will be required for operating ERS system?
✔ Inputting the wastes and discharging the outputs: 1 to several staff (It depends on the kind of input wastes)
✔ Operating the machine: Assigning 1 staff is enough to monitor the operation by visually checking the agitation status inside ERS’s main body and by checking the indicators.
Do we need to replenish the microbes?
No. The microbe planted inside the machine naturally grows and increases its population without replenishment.
Are there no harmful germs including Bacillus coli living in the output matter after ERS treatment?
Harmful germs such as Bacillus coli will be killed by heating at 65℃ through fermentation and drying process of ERS treatment.
What is the strong point of ERS compared to a conventional composting plant?
A big difference between ERS process and common composting process is the time length of processing to generate fermented organic matter.
✔ ERS: 2 to 4 hours
✔ Composting: More than 1 month
What is the core technology used for ERS (Environmental Recycling System)?
It is a high speed fermentation and drying technology using indigenous microbes and mechanical depressurization.
✔ The microbes planted inside the main body of ERS generate fermentation heat well under 50 to 60 ℃.
✔ Internal pressure of ERS main body is mechanically reduced to get the boiling temperature down to 50 to 70 ℃ to expedite the fermentation and evaporation of water content of the input waste.
What kind of maintenance is required?
Daily maintenance can be done by your staff. Annual checkup is done by us.
