Clinical & Medical Waste
Medical & Clinical Waste Processing Systems
Challenger have worked in the medical / clinical waste industry in the UK and elsewhere in Europe for 20 years with a commitment to providing excellent solutions and after-sales back up. These systems take in medical / clinical waste in a variety of different sized wheeled containers and can discharge dried ‘floc’ to waste compactors or moving floor trailers at rates from 500 kg per hour to 2,000 kg per hour or more. All Challenger equipment offers a continual flow of material much like a production line with minimal operational involvement as opposed to other technologies that are ’stop / start’ with significantly higher operational and running cost implications. All systems include air extraction, filtration and condensate removal technologies to industry leading standards.
Steam Screw Processing Systems
As the name suggests, Steam Screw systems use steam both within the screw conveyor mechanism and pumped into the pre-shredded medical / clinical waste to thoroughly and reliably sterilise the 'floc'.

Thermal Oil Screw Processing System
Thermal Oil Screw Systems use high temperature oil within the screw conveyor mechanism to turn moisture in the shredded medical / clinical waste into steam to thoroughly and reliably sterilise 'the floc'.

Wheelie Bin Washer
The Challenger wheelie bin washer has been specifically developed to both internally and externally wash standard 1,100-litre, 770-litre and 360-litre wheeled bins and other sizes of wheelies bins can be catered for on request. The system uses a water propelled wash heads to cover all internal surfaces and all external surfaces are covered by a series of fan jet array spray nozzles. The wash water delivery is by two separate, industrial, high-pressure, water pumps. Wash water is collected in the wash chamber sump, filtered and recirculated to get multiple uses from each batch of water. All contact surfaces of the wash chamber are manufactured from stainless steel or GRP with access panels and doors for ease of maintenance. Water is heated and a choice of steam or electrically heated coils are available. All movements including the bin loading door, internal wash arm and external wash arms are powered hydraulically via an integral and self-contained hydraulic power unit. A machine room is incorporated to the rear of the wash chamber to house the pumps, the hydraulic power unit, control valves, filters, etc. separately from the main wash zone. The washer is operated from a local control panel with multiple wash cycles…
