Not all cremation equipment are created alike, nor are the needs of crematories. This is why Matthews Cremation offers a wide variety of models based on the overall volume and budget of the cremation facility.

Take the IEB Series 8, 16 & 20 as an example. This is our line of entry-level pet cremation equipment, great for start-ups and funeral homes getting into the pet loss care business. This line is very well suited for low to moderate volumes of individual and small batch communal cremations.

The IEB 20 - the largest of our entry-level cremation units.

The IEB 8 can easily handle around 1,000 cremations a year and has a safe load capacity of up to 200 lbs. This is perfect for facilities handling household pets. The IEB 20 handles up to 500 lbs. and can perform about 2,500 cremations annually, making it an excellent choice for facilities planning to do small communal or segregated cremations as well as individual services.

These units all have a relatively small footprint – all are 6′ 5″ wide and 8′ 4″ tall. Only the length of the machine varies with the longest being the IEB 20 measuring in at 12′ 9.5″.

Included with the price of admission: Start-up & training, 10′ of stainless steel exhaust stack and storm collar, environmental submittals and operating tools.

And of course now we have cash back incentives of $2,500 for this series, making it an even better deal. If you are on the fence, don’t sit there for too long because this offer is only good until February 28, 2011.
