Q: Why is it important to cool down a cremator every time it completes a cycle?
A: It is imperative that crematory operators allow a cool-down period between cremations because during the cremation cycle, the refractory lining absorbs heat. Overheating of the refractory walls, floor and arches can lead to premature ignition of the next case or result in a rate of combustion in excess of the unit's capacity. This can lead to visible emissions and pollution exiting the stack.
By properly cooling the chamber, you can prevent this from occurring and prevent premature refractory damage.
