The DFW Electric was successfully presented to the cremation industry.
The DFW Electric was presented November 15th in Broek op Langedijk in the presence of international clients, contacts and governments. With this, a new chapter in the cremation industry has begun, namely one of sustainable energy use. With the arrival of the fully electrically operated DFW Electric, DFW Europe is able to produce any cremator regardless of the energy source available. In other words, cremators that work on gas, oil, biofuel, electricity or hybrid cremators. The first cremator in the Netherlands has meanwhile been bought by DELA.
The revolutionary DFW Electric is heated fully electrically. The energy is supplied by the electricity grid or, for example, by solar panels. The cremator is less environmentally harmful and more energy-efficient than the gas-fired cremator. If green energy is used, the cremator can operate CO2 neutral. The DFW Electric is a ‘hot insert’ cremator and is designed as a ‘single-end’ cremator. To reduce the assembly time on site, the cremator is delivered fully assembled.
The DFW Electric is equipped with an Automatic Insertion Machine (AIM). The construction was designed in such a way that the AIM can be integrated into the floor in front of the cremator. As a result, it will be completely hidden from view if it is not operated. The latest cremator is equipped with the unique DFW OMR control system. This makes the cremator, the AIM and the downstream filter installation very easy to operate. The cremation process parameters can simply be changed, if needed, via the touch screen. The electric cremator can, if required, also be monitored by DFW Europe’s maintenance team via an internet connection. This way changes can be made from a distance during the cremation process.
The ash pan containing the remaining ashes is moved to an ergonomically responsible position with a lift system. Taking out the ash pan is now so much easier for the operator as a result.
Energy consumption can be made transparent for each cremation via the optional report system. The reliable continuous measurement of oxygen, temperatures and pressures ensures a constant and efficient cremation process,
