Title: MACHINE FOR TREATING INFECTIOUS WASTE, IN PARTICULAR MEDICAL WASTE
Abstract:
This machine (1) comprises a receptacle (2) for loading waste, an assembly (3) for grinding this waste, including a grinder (5), and a pushing means (10) for pushing the waste in the direction of this grinder (5); -the receptacle (2) has a constant cross section; -said pushing means is a plate (10) that is movable in translation in the receptacle (2) for loading waste, having dimensions such that there is only a gap between the edge of the plate (10) and the walls bounding said receptacle (2). According to the invention, the machine comprises a seal (7) that is movable between a retracted position, in which this seal is not an obstacle to the movability of the plate (10) in the receptacle (2) for loading waste, and a sealing position, in which this seal provides sealing, in said end-of-travel position of the plate (10), between the plate (10) and the walls of this receptacle (2).
