Saubatech incinerator plants are designed to the highest standards to reduce every possible threat to the environment. Harmful emissions are negated, and our equipment complies in full with South African, USEPA and EU regulations.

Our manufacturers in South Africa have developed advanced thermal treatment technology, using their expertise gained over more than 40 years of designing tough, rugged, economical, reliable and smokeless incinerators.


Does your organisation have to dispose of massive amounts of waste on a daily basis?

Saubatech can help you reduce your waste content by approximately 95%. Our stand-alone incinerators offer an efficient way to dispose of a wide range of wastes while reducing the environmental impact.

As one of the world leaders in incineration technology, we offer waste management solutions for almost any type of waste: solid, liquid or gaseous. We also offer a range of capacities from 23kg/h to 1000kg/h, with custom designs available.

We provide an efficient, reliable and cost-effective way of disposing of general waste, hazardous waste, animal carcasses and medical waste, amongst others.



Our incinerators are certified to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems, and we strive to achieve the highest quality products and services.

We specialise in engineering simplicity and optimum reliability of all parts, ensuring minimum downtime and easy maintenance.


Due to the increasing concern of emissions and the impact people have on the environment, we have designed incinerator plants to help improve the environment we live in.

Our filtration systems are designed to EU and USA standards of absolute lowest emissions and achieve removal of 98% of particle matter.

which regulates the combustion rate, temperature in the different chambers, turbulence, gas velocities and supply of oxygen.

The incineration process combusts the waste at a high temperature, forming ash, flue gas and heat. To ensure a low environmental impact, combustion is carefully regulated to ensure all organic compounds are completely combusted, and filtration systems neutralise and adsorb compounds that cannot be combusted and filter out particulate matter.


We achieve industry-leading low emissions by controlling the rate of combustion in a three-chamber process and by capturing particulate matter in a settling chamber.

CO: Carbon Monoxide is reduced the by controlling the rate of combustion and ensuring complete combustion. This is achieved using a 2-chamber process with temperatures between 850°C and 1,100°C, high turbulence and long retention times.

and controlling input of air and temperature to ensure low NOx formation. Residue NOx is removed by the gas scrubber.

SO₂, HCl and HF: Acid gasses are reduced using our proprietary gas scrubber. Gasses are scrubbed in two stages: firstly preventing their formation in the incinerator, and then “polishing gas” by removing the final constituents during the filtration process. Our gas scrubber is completely dry, using no water, resulting in no pollutant water, or any water usage.

Heavy Metals and Dioxins: Heavy metals, along with Dioxins and Furans are scrubbed from flue gasses using an absorbent dry scrubber, resulting in no water use and no impact on the environment.

to Energy

Today companies and governments are moving more towards using waste-to-energy plants to recover waste heat from the process, to generate hot water, steam and electricity.

Waste to energy is now being used in many resorts and hotel complexes worldwide as companies look at new ways to conserve energy and contribute to protecting the environment.

that would otherwise enter the atmosphere, thus no additional carbon dioxide is produced.

Saubatech provides waste-to-energy technology to harness the excess heat from incineration to create electricity, hot air and/or hot water for cleaning.

PLC Controls
& Remote Access

Our PLC panels provide full automation, leaving zero room for operator error.
A large HMI screen displays the status of all components.

Remote monitoring enables troubleshooting assistance by Saubatech technicians.

& Insulation

Each Incinerator is manufactured using dual layers of Refractory and Insulation Castable, forming a single monolithic structure of extreme strength and durability, with a service temperature of up to 1,500°C, Cold Crushing Strength of 110Mpa, and expected lifetime of over 15 years.

Heat loss is extremely low, with a thermal conductivity of only 0.2 W/mK, ensuring high energy efficiency.


Models from a V100 upwards can be fitted with an auto-feeder, which underfeeds waste into the Incinerator.

This greatly increases the safety of the operator, and prevents over feeding or underutilisation of the Incinerator, as feeding is completely automated.

A beneficial side-effect is higher efficiency and fuel savings.

Combustion Air

The system is designed to recover heat from waste gasses, increasing fuel efficiency and ensuring complete combustion due to more stable high temperatures, with decreased fuel usage resulting in a faster ROI.

Gold Recovery

Saubatech’s system for gold recovery has revolutionised the way gold is recovered from fine activated carbon, and is used by major mining houses and specialist recovery firms.

The system has had global success, with units operating in South Africa, Tanzania, Ghana, Mali and the USA, as well as projects underway in Asia.

During the gold mining elution process, activated carbon too fine for re-use is removed.

Gold mining firms have started placing more emphasis on recovering gold from these carbon fines and wood chips due to increased pressure on gold mining firms to increase their recovery yield.

In the past these carbon fines were discarded or were processed in rudimentary furnaces losing most of the gold in flue gas emissions. Or they had to be recovered in chemical plants that could not achieve industrial scale and had high operating costs. Woodchips used during the process were similarly discarded.

Saubatech offers a reliable and cost-effective method for recovering up to 93-95% of gold from carbon residue. The system uses a thermal process that burns off the carbon and captures the gold residue in the resultant fly ash, using highly efficient ceramic filters. The entire process is fully automated to increase productivity of the plant.

Our system operates on a continuous basis, recovering 60/90 kg per hour. This translates into processing 25 to 30 tonnes of carbon per month, allowing for start-up times and maintenance.

Return on investment is usually between 8 and 12 months, depending on the gold concentration in the carbon particles, and daily operating hours. With a fast ROI, and low operating and maintenance costs, our environmentally friendly system has become the gold standard for the industry.


Saubatech’s economical gas incinerators are ideal for controlling malodorous hydrocarbon-based substances emissions.

Gas incinerators are typically used in manufacturing industries to prevent gas emissions from polluting the environment, additionally in sewage works or landfill sites.

Our gas incinerators are exported globally and are well-suited for rough conditions. We offer the following two options:

  • MACROblaze Waste Gas Burner
  • Macroburn Gas Incinerator

It consists of a burner head mounted on a vertical column, which protrudes upwards from a pedestal. It effectively discharges large amounts of combustible gaseous waste directly into the atmosphere, with the end of the stack containing a pilot flame, a source of steam and an exit nozzle.

Adjustability is a key benefit of our gas incinerators. The size of the nozzle jet can be changed to suit the size of the required pilot flame. Additionally, our incinerators are designed to include the necessary heat recovery, which assists in reducing the overall operating costs.

In the case that waste gases contain high quantities of acidic components, such as SOx or chlorine, heat exchangers cannot be used due to the risk of corrosion. Particulates could also potentially foul the heat exchanger surfaces. These gases would then require alternative treatment, like a gas scrubbing device, which can also supply.

Added products include the MAcroblaze flame trap or arrestor and tank vents.


  1. Flame arrestors have built-in as standard an automatic shut-off valve which closes when a fusible plug in the outlet side reaches an unsafe temperature.
  2. Flame arrestors are designed to absorb the direct blast of an explosion.
  3. Tank vents are adaptable from simple units to combined flame arrestors with vacuum pressure relief valve.
  4. All items are of simple robust construction – easily removed for maintenance purposes.


A variety of industrial processes generate liquid waste. Leaving such liquids untreated can be both harmful to the environment and pose as a safety hazard to worker’s health.

Saubatech’s liquid incinerators are a safe solution to get rid of the pollutants in waste gas.

During the process, our incinerators recover the heat in the liquid waste, enabling the supply of hot water, steam and the generation of power to the facility.


  • Liquid residue from a petroleum, pharmaceutical, or chemical process
  • Bad or unusable chemical mixtures or oil
  • Blow-downs and vents from chemical process
  • Liquid waste from spills in transfer stations
  • Liquid waste from tank containments
  • Liquid waste from collection and/or drainage systems

It is crucial that incinerators are regularly serviced to ensure optimal and long-lasting functioning of the incineration plants. Spare parts should also be kept, as this minimises breakdowns.

At Saubatech we offer biannual and annual servicing to ensure that your incinerator plant is well maintained.
