Incinerator Permit Process: Where to Start?

incinerator permit process helpIf you are exploring the purchase of an incinerator for the first time, you may feel overwhelmed with the plethora of information. If circumstances are leading you toward the purchase of an incinerator or crematorium, we want to congratulate you on the positive impact your decision will make on clean ground water supply, our environment, and community health and safety standards. Incineration is an excellent choice for proper disposal of a variety of farm, veterinarian, medical, mining and gaming camps, and other waste removal needs.

Starting the Incinerator Permit Process

Because of the wide range of incinerator or crematorium use, your permit process may be dictated by a variety of factors including geographical location, local ordinance, state, and sometimes federal. To begin the incinerator permit process begin at the lowest level of authority and most local possible. For most people and businesses this would be your town or city. Then, progress to the county level or state level if needed. When making your first call to the lowest level of authority, start with your local agricultural extension agent, building department, or planning/zoning department. (Every state has a  state extension office at its land-grant university, like this one in MN.) When you start at this level, with people you may even know, they are often able to look at things in a more practical, familiar way. Agencies at this level may already be familiar with your business, similar requests, and/or application process that creates a fair permit process. This can make the permit process go faster and more smoothly.

Choice of wording is important. When requesting a permit, take the time to adequately describe how you plan to make a positive impact, and avoid terms that will cause alarm when there should not be any concern. Terms like farm, animal mortality, and pet rendering will help explain your permit application. Keep your comments to a minimum and stick to the facts. Make sure you have data to support /justify comments you make, or leave them out. Stick to the application requirements. Some factors may be uninteresting or not pertinent to an agency, so again, answer only what you’ve been asked to supply. In some cases, burners and fans can be tuned to meet requirement priorities, so call us if you have a unique specification you’ve been asked to comply.


Waste Oil Heater in New Construction Specs

waste oil heater in specsIf you are planning remodeling, a new addition, or new facility construction, the time to factor in a waste oil heater is in the spec process. Firelake Manufacturing can help. We frequently have contractors contact us to help spec out the right waste oil equipment according to building codes and new facility heating needs. In many cases, the property owner is familiar with a waste oil heater and its extraordinary heating capacity, and has specified a Firelake waste oil heater.

Factoring in a Waste Oil Heater into Specs

Factoring waste oil equipment into new construction at the onset is ideal. Not only does it allow the building contractor to locate the right equipment, but often times the cost of the waste oil heater can be factored into the loan. Business owners appreciate the cost of the equipment spread out over time, allowing them to use the money saved on energy to be put toward the loan payments. This is an ideal situation that we hear businesses say they appreciate having the forethought to consider not only energy savings, but lower utility bills from the first day the building project is complete!

Waste oil energy is worth as much as 30% more by gallon than diesel fuel, double the heat value of propane. Savings are amplified because tax credits are available in some states and on the Federal tax forms for qualified purchases. Factoring in a waste oil heater in the specs and financing also allows for careful selection of (tax credit) qualified equipment; the determination of which is something that depends on the business type and how the waste oil equipment is categorized.

If we can help you spec out waste oil equipment, call us at (866) 252-3757.

Safe and Reliable: Virginia Transit Service Trusts Firelake

Virginia Regional Transit trusts Firelake ManufacturingThousands of people depend on mass transit, so a mass transit maintenance and service shop has an important role in keeping vehicles on the road and people getting where they need to be. The Virginia Regional Transit service bay works very hard to keep vehicles in top shape and depends on their Firelake waste oil heating system to keep the shop warm in the winter.

Virginia Regional Transit Service uses waste oil heatersThe Virginia Transit Service maintenance center has two Firelake heaters they purchased about a year ago. The heaters are very reliable and work every time. Other brands of heaters were tried at their prior location, but they switched to Firelake because the waste oil heaters are manufactured to produce more heat than other heaters. In fact, the heaters supply so much heat that usually they only use one. Only in extreme weather conditions do they turn on the second heater.

Service technicians stay warm and vehicles at a moderated temperature while being serviced thanks to the reliable heat of Firelake waste oil heaters.
