How the ELASTEC Drug Terminator Works
The Drug Terminator, a cyclonic, portable drug incinerator produced by Elastec, destroys illicit drugs and prescription drugs with a clean, smoke-free burn.
The system attaches to a 55 gallon open-head steel drum. Fueled with wood or charcoal, drug material is eliminated quickly and completely, leaving just one percent ash. Lightweight and easy to transport, it can be operated in remote locations or in municipalities.
The drugs destroyed are fed into the incinerator using a special Easy-Feed Cartridge once a wood fire is built up inside the drum. An intense whirlwind of fire is created by the high-velocity air blowers, rendering drugs and related materials in a non-retrievable state. Click here to find out more.
Prescription Drug Disposal For Take Back Programs
The Drug Terminator is portable and can be used to dispose of expired or unused medication collected during prescription drug take-back programs. The incinerator burns drugs and related materials rendering them to a non-retrievable state in order to prevent their diversion to illicit purposes. This helps protect public health and safety. For larger programs we also offer our MediBurn incinerator. Click here to find out more about medical waste applications.
Elastec manufactures drug drop-off boxes that can be used in conjunction with either our Drug Terminator or Mediburn for take-back programs. The boxes can be set up at locations to collect expired and unused prescription drugs so that they can safely be incinerated. Our drug drop-off boxes can be painted or wrapped with graphics to suit the needs of your location. Each box has a lockable deposit door, retrieval door for emptying, and 4 bolt anchor holes in the base. Contact us for more information.
