The B&L Cremation Systems, Inc. BLP 500 M3 animal crematory is designed for medium veterinarian facilities.  It is used for individual cremation, multiple cremations, or a maximum load size of 500 lbs.

This design allows for multiple private cremations without co-mingling any remains; up to three private cremations without any cremation pans required.  Still just as fuel efficient due to the hot hearth design, this machine excels with the technology we continue to use today.

The primary chamber is divided into three sections.  Remains for Section A are loaded through a hydraulic loading door located on the front of the retort.  Remains for Section B and Section C are loaded through manual hinged doors located on each side of the retort.

Features of the BLP 500 M3 Animal Crematory


FULLY AUTOMATIC CONTROL SEQUENCEOperation is made simple by the fully automatic control sequence.  A microprocessor temperature controller, with a digital readout, ensures optimum control while providing the lowest fuel consumption.  Visual verification of each stage is provided on the control panel.  Operator override is achieved by a turn of a switch for semi-manual control.
HOT HEARTH DESIGNFirst introduced by B&L, this design allows for wasted afterburning heat to be recycled through the floor, eliminating fluid problems, lowering fuel consumption, and extending the hearth life.
MULTI-CHAMBER AIR CONTROLLED DESIGNThe entire combustion process is completed within the air controlled chambers, eliminating burning in the stack, allowing for 24 hour operation, and providing for greater fuel efficiency over excess air designs.
POLLUTION MONITORING & CONTROL SYSTEMThis system constantly monitors the stack gases to prevent visible emissions. Integrated with the automatic system, this feature enables the unit to make all necessary adjustments automatically.
REFRACTORY LINED STACKA three inch insulating liner is provided as a safety feature.  While gases seldom exceed 1,000°F, the liner reduces heat penetration under every condition, preventing the possibility of fire.  A ten year warranty is offered on the stack liner.
LOW NOISEThe secondary combustion blower has been manufactured and installed to allow for low noise operation.
