How It Works

Starting the Barrel Burnerhopper

To start a fire in the barrel burner, starting materials, such as, wood, charcoal and wads of paper, must be set into the drum. Once the materials are lit and a good flame is burning, the lid can be clamped down. Additional air and items can now be added into the burner.

The Hopper

The Helios comes with the hopper that allows the user to load contents into the burner without having to face an open flame. Once the contents are placed in the hopper, the lid can be closed and the bottom of the hopper can be opened. The contents will now drop down into the drum on their own. This creates a safe and easy process for the disposal of drugs.

Disposal Boxes

Evidence disposal boxes are specially designed to make the burning process faster and create a tidy working environment. They provide an easy means for accurate measurement and keep the contents confined. Standard burn rates are designed to accommodate up to three boxes for the intial burn and then one box every 15 minutes after that.

Controlling the Temperature

The temperature of the Helios remains completely in the user's control. To maintain the proper temperature the operator can use the air control to adjust the amount of air being added. The stirring rod may be used to move around material that may be snuffing out a flame. A thermometer is located on every unit allowing ther user to check temperature of the barrel at all times.

Ending of the Burn

Confirming the burn is complete is simple with a couple of observations. First, make sure that the temperature gauge reads 200F or lower. Second, use the stirring rod to sweep around the barrel to ensure that no additional material is present. You will also notice that the inside of the drum will be black.

Once the drum is completely cooled, the ashes can be removed and hosed down with water, ensuring they will not ignite again.
