Thycaud Electric Crematorium      

The total land area spans 250 cents and the built in area comes to 5000m2. The various components envisaged in the project were:

1. The main crematorium building named the Santhi Kavadam encompasses two electric furnaces and a reserve place for putting up another furnace.

2. An RCC roof clad with tiles of the Kerala Model opened on all sides with walls, clad with black granite and floor laid with cut granite rough stones.

3. The cremation is done in the electric furnace (2 Nos.) installed by Essco Furnaces Pvt. Ltd, incorporating the best technique of total combustion carried out in the primary and secondary combustion chamber. It takes about one and half to two hours for the cremation of the body into ashes. The ashes are collected in urns.

4. The ashes in the urns are handed over to the relatives.

5. There is an electric panel room and a separate powerful transformer exclusively for the purpose of cremation.

6. There is a walkway floored with granite stones with green carpet on both sides. The spot is called the Smrithi Mandapam. There is another enclosure to accommodate more people during in the Smrithi Mandapam. There is an LCD TV in conjunction with a computer.

7. A parking area paved with cobbled stones is provided for the vehicles, adjacent to the Smrithi Mandapam .
8. The plant comprises the following components.

* There is a scrubber unit tank. From the tank, the effluent passes to another tank. In this tank Sodium Hypochlorite is added into the effluent. The effluents are disinfected and neutralized. After this, treated effluent goes to a settlement chamber and then to the soak pits.

* The heavy particles emanated from the burning bodies along with the gas, goes to a tower tank where the heavy particles settle. The effluent gas goes to a wet scrubber system (Venturi Wet Scrubber). Then it passes through the wet scrubber tower system. Hence the soluble emissions and fine particles are also removed. The mist (remains water) is passed through 30 meters height chimney. The gas going out of the chimney is within the pollution Control Limit.

* The average quantity of water consumption per day for the plant is 50 liters which is actually the back up water in the plant. The tank for 15 days consumption i.e. 6500 liters is incorporated in the system.

9. A comfort station is also built within the premises for the public.

10. There is a conventional crematorium working side by side with the electric crematorium using fire as the Saakshi. The renovation work of this unit has already been done, in tune with the adage “Old is Gold”.

11. All these monumental buildings are protected by a compound wall with cast iron gates at the exits and entrance.
