Trench burners are effective tools for the reduction of smoke and other pollutants, especially where open burning is prohibited by law. The trench burner creates and maintains a uniform curtain of air across the top of a pit in which the burning is done. The air curtain provided by the trench burner prohibits smoke and ash from leaving the pit. It also increases the burning efficiency in the pit by increasing the available oxygen. The increased burning efficiency allows for the faster and more complete burning of trees, stumps, and debris.


The McPherson Systems ACD (air curtain destructor/trench burner) is no exception and is a beneficial tool to replace open burning as a method of waste disposal.
