How Air Curtain Burner Operator Training Will Benefit Your Facility
Any facility that uses machinery operated by people runs more smoothly if operators are trained on their machinery. Workplace safety is optimized and smooth interaction with other operators and machines can achieved. This means maximum productivity for the facility and profitability for the owners.
Air curtain burners, sometimes called air curtain destructors or air curtain incinerators, are offered in several styles and are used for many different purposes but all have one thing in common: they get rid of wood waste without the menace of smoke experienced with open burning, and they do so fast and efficiently – but only if run properly.
White Paper-Forgotten Waste
Our World is drowning in waste and the focus on this dilemma tends to be directed at waste minimization, recycling and repurposing of resources. The focus is primarily plastics from household and industrial waste, all manmade. But what about the massive “forgotten” waste stream that is mostly of natural origin, wood and vegetative waste? This is the forgotten waste and a serious problem, as it is piling up by the day and it directly affects our environment, likely more so than manmade waste because of its sheer volume.
Controlling Emissions from the Burning of Vegetative Debris
Finding ways to reduce the emissions caused by burning biomass waste in open piles or by chipping and grinding it for trucking and depositing it landfills is of considerable importance in protecting the environment during disaster recovery operations. Air curtain FireBoxes, sometimes called air curtain destructors, have demonstrated proven effectiveness in controlling the amount of particulate matter or smoke that is released and they have been one of the tools of choice that DHS/FEMA included in the lineup of machinery required for prepositioned disaster recovery contracts and cleanup endeavors in general for many years.

U.S. Government Projects To Prevent Forest Fires
Preventing forest fires and wildfires is one of the most important goals for federal and state forestry services across the United States. Part of this process involves the removal of underbrush, fallen trees and other woody biomass from at-risk areas and the disposal of these materials in a safe and efficient way.
At Air Burners, we partner with many state and federal agencies to provide the most advanced air curtain burners for managing vegetation waste, and to promote greater safety for families and businesses which may be in the path of uncontrolled fires in the future.
The Right Solution for Preventing Bushfires in Australia
Bushfires are an ongoing threat in many parts of Australia. Finding the most practical and positive steps to take to combat these wildfires is critical to the safety of people and animals in these areas. An estimated 45,000 to 60,000 bushfires occur in Australia each year. Many of these events are caused by carelessness or deliberate action on the part of visitors to the grasslands or hilly areas of Australia. Taking steps to control the spread of these fires is essential to promote the safest conditions for visitors to and residents of Australia.

White Paper-Disaster Recovery and the Role of Air Curtain FireBoxes
Disasters can occur at any given time, at any given location and in a myriad of ways. Mostly of natural origin they can, unfortunately, also be manmade. Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and wind storms or ice storms are common and seasonal. There are also those that are not directly storm related such as earthquakes, wildfires, mudslides from heavy rains, and floods from rising waters caused by excessive melting of snow, ice or glaciers.
When we think of manmade disasters, terror attacks such as bio or agricultural terror often come to mind, but wildfire arson is another sad example. This typically takes the form of fires being set to woodlands willfully or by gross negligence.
There are also disasters caused by engineering errors or aging structures collapsing or causing explosions of oil or gas pipelines. Finally, there are countless occurrences of transportation related accidents involving trains, cars, ships or planes.
Commercial Land Clearing and Forestry Equipment vs Air Curtain Burner Machines: Which Are Better?
When you have a piece of land that needs to be cleared of trees and brush, the first thing you will probably think about is what land-clearing equipment you will need to buy or rent. For example, stumps may need a stump puller and a grinder. Dead trees may need a chainsaw. Ground cover may need a mower deck with cutter heads. And deadfall may need a forest bush hog, forest mower or brush mulcher.
White Paper-Biomass: Waste First, Then Fuel
Biomass covers a wide range of organic plant-like matter and depending on the viewpoint is either waste material or a desirable fuel, but can also be both. When we speak of waste, we usually refer to man-made waste, unwanted or discarded matter. Then there is also natural waste; biomass that is part of nature’s life cycle. Ever since life on earth emerged, that natural waste cycle has maintained a balance. Living things die, decompose and are returned to the earth to support new life; that includes woody biomass or trees. Most trees die eventually from old age, as their defenses to fight droughts, disease and insects diminish over decades, and those that don’t, like the Redwood, just keep growing taller and eventually reach a point where gravity counteracts the supply of nutrients up the tree trunk.
